The Kennett Square Holiday Village Market is a curated family-friendly artisan retail market. We are primarily looking for artists & artisans who create handmade, original work or vintage. Huge bonus if your products are holiday themed.
The event is held in an outdoor space & each participant will be provided with a 10’ x 10’ space, including a tent. Participants are required to bring everything else that is needed for set up & display. This includes your tables. This site has steps & some uneven walkways that vendors must be prepared for. We will have volunteers available to help with load in & load out. Vendors are required to clean up their 10' x 10' space after the event. Vendors cannot bring their own tents & must use the one provided.
NEW: Due to COVID-19 we will require attendees to purchase tickets in advance to limit the amount of guests to be compliant with the CDC guidelines. This means we will be seeing a flow of no more than 250 people at the Creamery each hour. We are still expecting a great crowd! Just one that is more spread out than past years.
If you would like to share a space and have someone in mind you must specify the name of your desired booth mate when applying. Both of you must be accepted in order to share a space. If your requested booth mate is not accepted, and you are, we can pair you will another vendor or will offer you your own 10’ x 10’ space. We can also help find you a vendor mate if you do not have one in mind. We do not allow more than 2 people to share a space.
Please keep in mind when applying that this is a family-friendly event. We are looking for vendors that cater to children & adults. Event coordinators have the right to refuse products that do not meet this criteria.
We will be communicating with you via email only. Check your emails (and spam folder) regularly for updates. Please direct questions to Meredith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
