Next Saturday, we here at BURRO will be celebrating our fourth year making handmade messenger bags, cycling accessories and apparel in Jacksonville. We've had our ups and downs over the years but because of our wonderful customers, we've been able to live the dream of running our own business making quality products for some of the most awesome people in the world!
As a thank you of sorts, we are hosting an evening full of fun with a little something for everyone.
You already know about the race, now brace yourself for the rager of the year! This amazing poster designed by our new friend, Waxfang, speaks for itself.
Immediately following the Holiday Deliverycat Race hosted by 904Fixed, we are kicking off what serves as our annual birthday/holiday party. In classic BURRO fashion, we will be throwing down hard with several special events and guests scheduled throughout the event.
Tradition requires that we present to you our new run of Artist Series bags. We've changed things up a bit this year however. Rather than many one-off bags, we've narrowed the field down to a handful of veteran contributors and created limited runs that will be available for sale. We'll also be raffling off a couple along with some amazing prizes that we'll teas later on. Check out our 2009 and 2010 Artist Series bags on our Flickr.
We're super stoked about our entertainment. We've got Jacksonville hardcore band Swear Jar, one of our sponsored bands and rising stars in the scene.
BURRO is proud to present the world debut of NOMADIX, a project of none other than Sink or Swim / Team Burro's Zack Fortune along with Mr. Kramer and NCABRAM. This is NYC and LA's finest performing for the first time in Jacksonville. That HAS to be a first!

Our neighbors and good friends at Chomp Chomp are putting together an eating competition of epic proportions that will be entertaining to say the least!
Our resident mixmaster, DJ Cheff Rocc will hold it down before the bands and DJ Furoche delivers an eclectic mix of booty-shakin heavy house from outer space to close it out and get the people moving.
Admission is $5 and includes a raffle ticket and a free drink. Additional raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the event.
Can't wait to see everyone and party down! RSVP here.
