Vendor application for Fallasburg Bazaar

 

Arts/Crafts/Bazaar in the Village of Fallasburg Park 2019

Saturday September 14th and Sunday September 15th

10:00am-5:00pm (both days)

 

The Fallasburg Historical Society invites you to join our 2-day Arts/Crafts/Bazaar in the Village of Fallasburg Park, located east of Grand Rapids, Michigan. The event will be host to unique crafts and food booths and is also home to a museum, village and vintage baseball tournaments! We are located in Fallasburg Park, one of Kent County’s most beautiful public parks – the 76-acre park is located on the inspiring Flat River. When you cross the Historic Covered Bridge, into our charming village, you will be taking a step back in time.

 

We plan to capture some of the annual attendees to the Fallasburg Festival of the Arts, which will be held in the park during the same dates, with estimated traffic of 20,000-30,000!  The Fallasburg Fall Festival for the Arts has been voted #39 of the festivals, nationwide, by 2012 readers of Sunshine Artists Magazine, and has been called “a unique event that develops the potential of its extraordinary historical setting”, by www.artfaircalendar.com.

 

Admission AND Parking for the Arts/Crafts/Bazaar is FREE.

 

Important Dates:

Show Dates:                                         September 14th & 15th, 2019

(One day participation is an option – no discount to booth fees)

 

Selection Procedure:

A group, comprised of Fallasburg Historical Society board members, will serve as the selection committee to ensure a diverse range of crafters whose work is of original quality and that represents a variety of creative styles for the Village Bazaar.

 

 

 

Fallasburg Historical Society has a policy to provide equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from all programs, activities and services without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex or handicap.
