A Crafter & Vendor Market Area Featuring Offerings from Local Crafters & Merchants (Link to Application)
We are currently seeking area crafters and vendors to participate in this high traffic event. We are expecting large crowds at this event based on our aggressive public relations/advertising campaign, making this the perfect opportunity for you to showcase your crafts and merchandise at a venue where you are not competing with throngs of competitors selling the same items. Our vendor spaces are reasonably priced at $25.00 for a 10’ x 10’ space, or $40.00 for two adjoining 10’ x 10’ spaces. Interested crafters and vendors should reserve their space soon by submitting the linked Vendor Application together with the registration fee in accordance with the instructions included on the form. Questions should be directed to Maureen Kos, Chairperson, Crafter/Vendor Sub-committee at 203-804-1613, or email email@example.com.
