Cyclops returns for fourth year
- Published: September 10, 2014
The fourth annual Cyclops Fest from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 13, on the John Bryan Community Center lawn will feature more than 70 arts and crafts vendors, 11 food trucks, DJ-spun tunes, a craft beer garden and activities for kids.
A homage to everything homemade, handcrafted and repurposed and a rebellion against everything mass-produced, factory-made and imported, Cyclops has carved out its niche in the festival scene, according to organizer DJ Galvin of Urban Handmade in Yellow Springs.
Handmade vendors will sell head wraps, marionettes, tea cup bird feeders, all-natural laundry detergent, bicycle bags, fascinators, buttons, coasters and much more. Artists will offer works of steel, wood, glass, spray paint and caricature. Upcycle vendors have turned wine bottles into cheese trays, barn siding into bird houses, neckties into messenger bags and buttons into rings. In all there will be apparel, accessories, jewelry, bath products, garden décor that are one of a kind (many tapping into fashions like steampunk, geek chic and vintage).
A previously-scheduled Hunt the Cyclops scavenger hunt and race on Saturday benefiting the Community Children’s Center has been canceled.
