In 2018, Strange Folk Festival has totally overhauled its vendor application and registration system for makers, artists, designers, and vintage curators. This new, simplified process allows makers to submit an eligibility assessment for all upcoming events, rather than meeting deadlines for individual event applications.
All other entities interested in exhibiting/selling(including food vendors), collaborating, or volunteering should proceed to 2018 Participation Forms instead.
Eligibility Assessments for 2018 are currently running. Assessments 2019 will begin on November 1st, 2018.
Eligible vendors will receive email invitations with event detail documents for reserving spaces for both scheduled and pop-up events throughout the year. Your lead time preferences are captured on the eligibility form, and most events and dates are indicated for preparation as well. Scheduled events will require a $75 reservation portion of the fee upfront, and there is generally a one week window to pay that before the invitation expires. So, keep your emails tuned to firstname.lastname@example.org and be ready to throw down!
Every year, a limited number of alumni vendors are chosen to receive Maker Lodge invites for the upcoming year. This gives them the opportunity to reserve spaces at all four main events in our annual series: Potion Party, The Big Glamp, Strange Folk Festival, and Wundermarket, along with access to detailed spec sheets for all events.
Members pay $100 upfront that goes towards their first event fee, and then $25 for each event reservation desired. They may optionally keep the same map placement annually and are added to a private Facebook group where they get an inside scoop and fast, casual support. In 2018, we are working towards facilitating community mentorships and skill-building activities for members to participate in as well.
