The Five Points Festival is a collision of designer toys, street art, alternative art, and craft beer curated by Clutter Magazine and Fueled by Lagunitas Brewing Company. A designer toy festival in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint Neighborhood, Five Points Fest is two days and nights of vinyl and plastic toys, original art, indie designers, resin, plush, blind boxes, blanks, minis, kaiju, Japanese vinyl, posters, prints, apparel, craft beer and more – kicked-off by the 2018 Designer Toy Awards. The antidote to the average con, Five Points brings tastemakers, misfits, and rebels together with the new, retro, and infamous in a one-of-a-kind marketplace.
