Ragfinery is hosting its fourth annual Upcycle Runway Challenge! Every year brave participants of all skill levels are tasked with transforming castaway materials into runway-ready designs. This exciting event is a celebration of creativity and community as we come together to be inspired, witnessing local artists and craftspeople transforming ordinary into extraordinary. Follow our Facebook event page to keep up to date.

Artist entry opens Wednesday, February 14th at 10:00 am, in person at Ragfinery.

This year’s theme, Flora & Fauna,¬†celebrates our natural world in its elegance and wonder, challenging participants to design and construct costumes, garments, and accessories that embody the beauty and grace displayed in our natural world. With the support of enthusiastic community members, participants will walk the red carpet runway for a panel of local judges, and awards will be presented in six categories on the night of the show.¬†

Join us at the Leopold Crystal Ballroom for a lively exhibition of local talent, food, wine, entertainment, and awards, all in the name of raising funds for Ragfinery’s unique nonprofit project.¬†
