New York Denim Days 2017
The first-annual New York Denim Days Festival will take place on September 30th – October 1st. This indigo-soaked two-day shopping event at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea will include interactive displays, indigo dyeing workshops, new denim designers as well as established brands, and denim mills alongside in-store events, a vintage denim market, parties, DJ’s and panels – all geared to give consumers access to their denim heroes and heritage brands.
A one-day street bazaar will take place outside the Metropolitan Pavilion on October 1 and will include food, live entertainment, games, art, selfie stations, and more! This festival is for denim heads, fashionistas, foodies, families, tourists, teens, tweens, and of course, all New Yorkers who are true-blue denim lovers.
