Santa Ana welcomes Patches and Pins Festival

August 12, 2018 by  

The fourth annual Patches and Pins Festival will take place in Santa Ana this month. This event was started primarily to put fans and buyers in direct contact with those who make pins, patches, and other small accessories, and has been growing since the first year.

This year, the festival will include a car show, a vintage bike show, vendors and booths, live art, live music, as well as food and drink. There will also be giveaways throughout the event. The pins and patches will cover a wide range of topics and fans will be able to connect directly with pin makers. There is even a speaker panel where visitors can ‘meet the artist’.

General admission to this event is free, and the organizers are offering a free pin to the first 400 people in line. Approximately 5,000 people are expected to attend.

Hosts of the event will likely use print shops to meet the demands of this event. Often, events like this have a printed schedule or guide, along with some information. Individual booths also generally have printed signs or posters, business cards, and other paraphernalia.

Conveniently located on E. 4th street, there is parking in the area, as well as shopping and restaurants. The festival is scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 18, from noon to 8 pm.
