Pride Festivals are a wonderful opportunity but come with their own list of needs (like owning a tent, paying a vendor fee higher than your typical craft/vendor fair). We’ve partnered with Capital Pride to offer a solution to allow an opportunity for small, queer makers to enjoy the fun that is being part of the Pride festival with fewer barriers.
Applications are due June 30, 2022 at 11:59pm.
We have a 10×20 foot area reserved and a tent to match it.
We will have 6-8 vendors within this area: vendors will have, roughly, a 2 or 4 foot table space and will likely be able use the wall space behind them (tent will be designed in a large U).
The wall space will not be accessible directly to shoppers and depending on weather, walls may be up or down on the sides for rain/sun protection/breeze.
Tent, tables, and chairs will be provided.
4ft: $30 for one day, $50 for both days.
2ft: $25 for one day, $40 for both days.
All efforts will be made to ensure a diversity of makers and prevent too much overlap between items, styles, and products.
If the vendor fee presents a barrier, we recommend looking into and applying for the ShowUp grant.

As it is a Pride Festival and we will be promoting the tent as being filled with 2SLGBTQ+ makers, we ask that all applicants identify as such and be comfortable being publicly mentioned as such.
Vendors are each responsible for their own change/money/payment processing.
We recommend Square for credit card/debit processing. If you don’t already have an account you can sign up here.
