How to Become a Vendor

To apply to become a vendor at one of our arts and craft fairs, please download an application. Each application will include information such as booth fees, booth area, payment info as well as "day of the event" instructions. After reading the application and additional info, please fill it out and send it to us with a booth payment. This can be done one of two ways: PayPal or by check.

Your booth is not reserved until we have received payment in full with completed vendor application.


If you do not see the event application for an event that has already been announced, then that means there is no longer booths available for that particular event.


All events are 100% indoors with the except of HandMade in the Shade which has both indoor and outdoor options.

On each events vendor application, we ask the vendor to check a box under the category that best describes their work. We also ask for a detailed description of the items that will be presented at the show. This helps us to ensure that there's a balance between the categories at our events. It also helps to prevent similar categories from being placed too close to one another. 


Just because something you make isn't listed on here, doesn't mean we wouldn't accept you. Fitting into a category just helps us to organize on our end. 

What are the booths like at each of your events?

Each booth is 10' wide by 8' deep. One 8' table and two chairs (should you desire them) are included in the booth fee.

Holiday Art & Craft Fair: Free Admission

The spaces at this venue are table spaces only. There is an 8' table and two chairs included in your booth fee. 

Are your events juried?

Technically, no. We do ask that all new vendors describe their work to us and send us a photo of what they plan on selling at an event. When we receive a vendor application, we make an immediate decision on whether or not the work fits with our show.  From there, we notify the vendor and confirm their participation in the event. 

Do you require the vendors to provide an item towards a raffle?

No. Vendors are not required to submit a raffle item. Occasionally, we will hold silent auctions at our event to coincide with charitable partnerships we have. However, vendors are still not required or asked to submit anything towards the silent auctions.
