From Craft Lake City:

“The Craft Lake City DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Festival was formed in 2009 by Angela H. Brown, editor and publisher of SLUG Magazine (Salt Lake UnderGround), as a way to showcase local DIY (do it yourself) culture.

Since then, Craft Lake City has expanded the DIY Festival to become the state’s largest, local-centric, two-day arts festival, with over 200 local artisans, a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Building, two stages for musical and dance performances, local food vendors, food trucks and hosting over 40,000 festival attendees.

Furthermore, the organization seeks to enhance Utah’s DIY arts culture by broadening the definition of “craft”  to encompass all things handmade – including craft food, STEM and DIY engineers (electronic makers).”
