Set Up Shop in Our Hand-Made Village

Set Up Shop in Our Hand-Made Village

Even in these dreary days of November, it’s looking bright here at the office as we get things lined up for next summer’s festival! Applications to become a vendor in the Hand-Made Village at the 2015 Folk Fest are online now.

Art is the spice of life! We couldn’t be more proud of the collection of artisans, both local and from across Canada, who gather at the festival to share their one-of-a-kind pieces with our community. From soaps to apparel, instruments to jewelry and toys to sculptures – the Hand-Made Village is definitely a shopping experience you’ll want to save some dollars for.

We are always looking for new artisans to join us at the festival. Click here for more about the application process. So many incredible applications come in every year and we’d love to include everyone, but there are only 48 booths, so we have a jury that makes those tough decsions. To get a true sense of your work, we strongly encourage sending us samples, but good quality photos are also accepted.

Here’s a taste of the Hand-Made Village!
