Flemington DIY, a community arts organization, invites the community to its nine year anniversary party dubbed 9 Lives of DIY, happening Saturday, May 20, 10am-10pm.


“The 9 Lives of DIY name alludes to the fact that we are a resilient group of volunteers who do things for the community because we believe in it,” says Jeff Hersch, co-founder and executive director. “Since our reopening last year, we’ve seen unprecedented growth by way of funding, new partnerships, and recognition. We want to celebrate with the people who made it happen – our community.”


Lone Eagle Brewing will also be unveiling a limited “9 Lives India Pale Ale” to commemorate the anniversary. They have generously pledged to donate a portion of proceeds to Flemington DIY.
