Denim Days Announces 2018 Festival Dates

#HipNJ, get ready to cross the river this fall into New York City for Denim Days, one of the most exciting fashion events of the year!

New York Denim Days organizers are set to once again stage an indigo-soaked event to take over the city September 22-23. Spearheaded by true denim insiders, the New York Denim Days festival connects denim professionals, designers and brands to denim consumers.

Denim lovers from across the spectrum – fashionistas searching for the perfect pair of jeans, fade junkies looking to compare notes on raw denim, purists on the hunt for handmade indigo items, and designers shopping for Americana inspiration – will find the largest selection of indigo available at one event during New York Denim Days. Food, live music and art will round out the festival experience. Plans include events with retail partners throughout the city, and a two-day main event at the Metropolitan Pavilion located at 125 West 18th Street in New York City.

To purchase tickets go to Denim Days Tickets. Ticket holders will also receive discounted rides to and from the festival courtesy of LYFT.

This year, New York Denim Days will reach beyond the Metropolitan Pavilion, thanks to pop-up shops at New York Waterway terminals during New York Fashion Week (September 6 – 14).

“With its mix of denimheads, the best brands and retailers and the most forward fashion, New York is the perfect home for Denim Days. We are thrilled to be back this year and will be shining an even bigger spotlight on the jeans industry,” said Andrew Olah, one of the New York Denim Days organizers and founder of the Kingpins Show, the global denim sourcing trade show.”

New York Denim Days will also host an invitation-only day of denim lectures, called Denim Legend Talks, on September 21. The final roster of speakers will be announced this summer and will feature a who’s-who of the denim trade, from top designers to creatives and executives on the cusp of what’s next in the denim industry.

If September isn’t enough to satisfy your indigo craving, you can join #HipNJ at the two other exciting locations!

Following the NYC event, Denim Days will return to its original home in Amsterdam for a festival, from October 22-28. Included in the programming is a week-long City Center happening featuring sales and events hosted by denim retailers; the two-day Amsterdam Blueprint festival, with a denim market, seminars, workshops, installations, brand activations, music, expos and more.

New to the Denim Days event schedule, Nashville will be home to a two-day festival, from November 10-11. This will connect indigo aficionados and denimheads to the industry through brand activations, hands-on workshops by artisans and denim mills, vintage markets, live music and more. The inaugural event will take place at Marathon Music Works in downtown Nashville.

“Last year we brought Denim Days to New York because we believed the concept would resonate with the New York denim scene – and we could not have asked for a better reception,” said Andrew Olah. “Nashville is playing an increasingly important role in the American denim and fashion industry, and with its large creative community and deep roots in music, we felt that the city was a natural fit for Denim Days.”

The First Annual New York Denim Days

#HipNJ, get ready to cross the Hudson River for the fashionista event of the fall!

An exciting festival called Denim Days will be hitting New York City’s streets from September 30th to October 1st. Founders Eric Goldstein and Andrew Olah introduced the Denim Days festival to Amsterdam in 2014. Since then, it has become a staple event for denim fans and fashion lovers. The first annual New York Denim Days seeks to celebrate New York’s take on the versatile thread we all love to wear.

The city’s denim culture will be displayed on Saturday and Sunday, and everyone from fashion bloggers to families are invited to show off their own unique style.

The festival will not only feature live entertainment, food trucks, art, and kids activities, but also pop up shops, vintage showrooms, workshops, and exhibits—all showcasing the indigo process. Over forty-five established brands will be attending, some offering limited edition collections, including BLKSMTH, Jean Shop, Levi’s Made & Crafted, 3×1, and more. Some highlights include live dyeing of denim by Sayaka Toyama, and on-site jean repairs by denimrepair.com, a site dedicated to fixing your favorite blue jeans in an eco-friendly way.

Denim Days’ expansion from Amsterdam to New York proves how eager consumers are to understand what they are wearing. For those in the denim community, it is a chance to share their craft and educate others about the art. Interactive displays from denim brands as well as lectures from experts allow for this opportunity. New York Denim Days lets consumers connect with the people who make the clothing they love. It is a revolutionary event for fashion.

The first day of the event will be hosted at Metropolitan Pavilion. Tickets are available at denim-days.com/ny/tickets for $10 and at the door for $15. Students are $5 with valid identification. Denim Days will conclude at the 18th street festival, in between 6th and 7th avenue, and is free to visit.
