Flint’s new summer expo, Drip Fest, brings hundreds out for sneakers, clothing and more

FLINT, MI – Flint’s newest summer event, Drip Fest, is a sneaker and clothing exchange that provides a space for collectors to buy, sell and trade anything from vintage tees to designer clothing.

The first-ever Drip Fest ran from Saturday, June 3 through Sunday, June 4 at the Dort Financial Center.

Vendors came prepared with tables full of sneakers, designer clothes, vintage clothes, collectables, art, handmade pieces, custom on-site embroidery and much more.

Seth Conklin, owner and organizer, hopes that Drip Fest becomes a yearly tradition in the Flint area.

“We’ve had a decent turnout especially for our first year, thousands of pairs of shoes in the building, thousands of clothing items from designer all the way down to vintage,” Conklin told MLive-The Flint Journal. “We definitely need the community to come out and show their support so we can do this again next year.”

The event also featured music and a bar inside the venue. There also were multiple food truck vendors outside serving pizza, tacos and other foods.

Alongside the sneaker and clothing exchange, there also were bounce houses and several other games for kids.
