    There could not be a Trashion Show without Trashion Crafting, which gets underway 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25 at WabiSabi’s Community Engagement Center next to the retail outlet at 160 East 100 South in Moab.

    Organizers encourage participants to create an outfit made of found, repurposed and recycled materials.

    The 2020 Trashion Show starts at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29 at Woody’s Tavern. Moab’s Fiery Furnace Marching Band will provide the tunes — brass and bass, including a tuba — and DJ Bob of KZMU’s Horizon Line will provide electronica.

    Proceeds benefit Resiliency Hub’s upcycling programming. The Hub will collaborate this year on a creative reuse center that demonstrates the use of its Ubuntu Press, educating people on the waste stream and promoting reduction and reuse of material resources.

    The cost is $10 and attendees must be 21 or older.
