If you’re looking for a way to unload all of those cold hard bitcoins in the flesh, you won’t have to look much further than the Lower East Side; the Hester Street Fair will soon entertain 30+ small vendors who accept the cryptocurrency, dubbed the NYC Bitcoin Fair.

The fair within a fair will happen every Sunday from 11-6pm inside the park, providing meetups, games, giveaways, and bitcoin info booths, because someone other than Wikipedia needs to explain what the hell this “democratizing currency” is all about.

It kicks off June 15 and wraps up October 26. More deets can be found here.

How do you spend your Bitcoins?
