Our good friends/neighbors in Riverside are throwing their annual Saturation Fest!!  And we love it.

Saturation is a DIY art and music festival that occurs annually in Riverside, CA. Saturation is a labor of love, and it’s successful because of the incredible talent in Riverside.

We wish we could attend all of their events (and had the time to feature all of them on the blog), but since we can’t physically do that we have highlighted some of our personal favorites below.  Some are music oriented, some are DIY craft oriented, all of them you can learn something new from.

If you are looking to dip out of town this weekend, we recommend Saturation Fest!  Why?  Because D.I.Y. till you DIE.
