UPCOMING EVENTS

I'm taking this show on the road! Come visit me in person, where you can try on my beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces. I'll be at these upcoming events:  

Clockwork Alchemy "Aetheric Ocean", San Mateo CA - April 19-21, 2024.  Clockwork Alchemy is the San Francisco Bay Area’s own steampunk convention, celebrating alternative history, sci-fi, and fantasy. For anyone who loves sci-fi with an alternate history spin, Clockwork Alchemy provides a 3-day event with an immersive environment, welcoming community, and many hours of panels, games, social events, and concerts. Clockwork Alchemy is a great event for readers, artists, makers, crafters, costumers, fans, families and more, coming the weekend of April 19-21, 2024.

Walnut Creek Art & Wine Festival, Walnut Creek CA - June 1-2, 2024, 11am-7pm both days. I'll be a new vendor this year at the popular Walnut Creek Chamber Art & Wine Festival, returning for its 41st year. Recognized by the Contra Costa Times as the East Bay’s Best Outdoor Festival and winner of Walnut Creek Magazine's Best Community Event. The festival features top-quality, non-stop local and Bay Area music and entertainment for the entire family, distinctive hand-made crafts and works of art from more than 200 artisans, award-winning local and regional wines and microbrews, and ethnic and traditional festival food.

158th Scottish Highland Games, Alameda County Fairgrounds, Pleasanton CA - Labor Day Weekend, August 31-September 1, 2024.  I'll be back again for this year's Scottish Highland Games and Gathering of the Clans!  A Bay Area tradition since 1866, California's largest and longest-running Scottish Games celebrates the very best of Scottish competition, culture and entertainment for all the family to enjoy. Traditional Scottish competitions include heavy athletics, highland dancing, piping and drumming, and sheepdog trials. Live entertainment includes Scottish folk musicians and celtic rock bands, and there are two large exhibit halls full of arts and crafts vendors.

Oktoberfest, Downtown Campbell, CA - October 19-20, 2024. Since 1994, the Chamber of Commerce has attracted almost one million people to its annual Oktoberfest in historic downtown Campbell. This two-day Bavarian-themed event showcases authentic, mouthwatering German foods including Bratwurst and other sausages, sauerkraut, pretzels and German potato salad, a variety of beers and ales, over 100 fine artisans from all over the country, and an impressive line-up of entertainment.
