Event Description

(Psst, we are really going for the great local, organic beer.)


City Repair's Village Building Convergence is an annual ten-day placemaking festival that combines crowdsourced activism, creative community development, hands-on education and celebration.

During the day, you will have the opportunity to get involved with creative, community designed placemaking projects happening all over the city. There will be building, gardening, art, and many other fun things to do and great people doing them with you! This aspect of the event is always free.

Learn valuable skills for urban sustainability and social regeneration while celebrating the creativity and diversity of our wonderful city! Read more about the VBC...
