OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — HutchFEST will celebrate the annual festival's fourth year Sunday by bringing over 300 vendors to North Downtown.

Hosted by local furniture shop hutch, the festival is described as a one-day community and artisan celebration.

The event draws vendors from across the Midwest; however, food and drinks will be provided by some of Omaha's favorites: Block 16, Via Farina, Saddle Creek Breakfast Club, The Grove, Coneflower, Vis Major, Maven Social as well as 15 more local food trucks and operations.

Owners Nick Huff and Brandon Beed aim to support makers from across the region and create unique experiences in Omaha.

“This last year we were able to open a new concept in Countryside Village called ‘Made in Omaha’ which supports and sells from over 70 local artisans, many of which are at hutchFEST. We also still sell local makers in our hutch location at Midtown Crossing,” said Huff. “HutchFEST is our opportunity and continued commitment to finding and providing a lively marketplace for talented artisans across the Midwest.”
