It’s year 8 and VMKT (formerly ‘VLNTNSDYMRKT — yet still pronounced Valentines Day Market) is just around the corner – Sunday, February 2nd, from 12-5 at the Majestic Theater! Handmade Detroit’s “VMKT” is putting together creatives for an indie market with goods, gifts and treats perfect for metro-Detroiters shopping for their Valentines.
VMKT will feature a 30+ maker-market curated for seasonal shopping, a live DJ to set the mood, make and take stations, fun surprises and features, door prizes and master-craftster tutorials to warm shoppers hearts in the chilly Motor City! DJ Eugene Machine will be back to DJ the afternoon, lounging on stage playing swoony love jams and kitsch treasures.
We are so excited to return to the newly remodeled Majestic Theater Center, the space where the very first DUCF was born in 2006! Please mark your calendars to join us in ‘the big room’ from 12-5pm!
Admission is $15 and includes all the make-stations
OR $1 admission at the door for those just wanting to shop.
