Oakland Indie Artisan Craft Fair Forced to Cease and Desist

Add one more casualty to the list generated by Oakland’s War on Fun: The Oakland Indie Artisan Craft Fair, which was supposed to take place on Saturday, December 10 in a large building at 474 24th Street. Spokesperson Elizabeth August said that after receiving a cease and desist letter from the city, organizers decided to cancel the event. Although the building tenants had obtained a conditional use permit for art production, events, and retail sales in a commercial space, they were informed on December 7 that it wasn’t sufficient to cover an event on the scale of Indie Artisan Fair, which would have involved 25 local vendors.
