Pierce College Puyallup is co-sponsoring and hosting DIYfest 2016, a free event celebrating all things do-it-yourself. Experts and aficionados showcase their skills through hands-on activities. Demonstrators share fun and useful know-how on a variety of topics from crafting and sustainable living, to cooking and home renovation. The event features talks by local authors. More than 1,000 people of all ages attended Pierce County Library’s DIYfest last year.

DIYfest 2016 is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 29 in the College Center Building on the Pierce College Puyallup campus, 1601 39th Ave. SE, Puyallup. Parking is free and plentiful.
How to be a DIY exhibitor
Exhibitors don’t have to be accredited or experts, but should be excited to share their knowledge and skills. Space is free. Priority will be given to applicants who provide free, hands-on activities for those who attend. This year, exhibitors can sell goods at the event.
