In 2018, Strange Folk Festival has totally overhauled its vendor application and registration system. This new, simplified process allows makers to submit an eligibility assessment for all upcoming events that year, rather than worrying about deadlines for individual event applications.
Eligibity Assessments for 2019 will commence 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, 100 alumni vendors are chosen to receive Maker Lodge invites for the upcoming year. This gives them the opportunity to reserve spaces at all three main events in our annual series: 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 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.
