– We are opening the entire circular concourse and have space for an additional 20 vendors.  More space = higher capacity and more customers.

– Vendors will NOT be given a booth size upon acceptance. Once accepted, vendors must log in and reserve whichever booth size they prefer. Sizes are available first come first serve. A 50% payment will be due immediately, and the remaining is due Oct. 1st. The portal will open at 9am on August 18th for approved vendors to log in and select booth size/pay. Show management will assign booth placement once everyone is paid.

CANCELLATIONS DUE TO HEALTH RESTRICTIONS:
We are all praying that our holiday markets can go ahead this year without any restrictions or last minute cancellations.  However, these situations remain out of our control.  If our event is forced to cancel before Nov 1, 2021 all vendors will receive a full refund.  After that, the amount refunded will depend on how many non-refundable expenses show management has incurred OR vendors will be offered full credits to use towards future events.. We will do our absolute best to refund the full amount – we do NOT want a repeat of Spring 2020! But at some point we have to commit and spend money to execute this event.  We will remain open with clear communication throughout the process.

FAQ

What is the application process?

We are accepting applications until August 13th. You will be notified by email with your application results on August 17th. NEW THIS YEAR: Vendors will NOT be given a booth size upon acceptance. Once accepted, vendors must log in and pay for whichever booth size they prefer. Sizes are available first come first serve. The portal will open at 9am on August 18th for approved vendors to log in and select booth size/pay. Accepted applicants will have 7 days from the date of the acceptance email to pay the full amount of the booth fees.

Who can apply?

Craft Culture is a juried show. Acceptance is based on the quality, originality and craftsmanship of the work to be sold. Other factors include booth display, product packaging and product categories within each show so that no one category is saturated.  Only work produced by you or under your direct supervision will be considered. Work represented by dealers or agents will not be allowed. Sorry folks, this includes Avon, Mary Kay, Stella and Dot, Norwex etc.

Can Craft Distilleries/Wineries/Breweries apply for this event?

Unfortunately licencing gets complicated at this venue, so we are unable to accept any vendors selling alcohol.

What is included?

Booths include a 3′ high drapery side wall, 8′ high drapery back wall, and one power outlet.

Can I share a booth?

Sorry, unfortunately booth sharing is no longer allowed.

Can I bring my own table?

You bet!  Vendors are welcome to bring along any display items including tables, chairs, floor covering etc.  Our show contractor, Showtime Event & Display, can also rent any of the common items if needed (order package coming soon).

Is internet available?

Unfortunately dedicated wireless internet is not available in this building.  If you rely on an internet connection for your sales, your best bet is to purchase a mobile internet stick or use your 3G on your smartphone or tablet.  It is possible for Shaw to run a dedicated WIFI/Hardwired modem for you, but the prices are pretty hefty.  Please contact Showtime Event & Display for more information.

Where can we park?

A limited number of dedicated vendor parking stalls are available in the side parking lot directly in front of the loading bay at Prospera Place. These spaces are available first come first serve. Vendors are responsible for purchasing a reduced weekend rate parking pass for these spaces, available through the parking ticket machines in the parking lot.   All other vendors are responsible for finding on-street or alternate parking near the building.  There are quite a few free or cheap options in the vicinity.

Things happen. What is the cancellation policy?

Cancellations must be requested in writing. If requested 60 days or more before the show, vendors will receive a full refund less a $100 cancellation fee.  If cancelled 60 to 30 days before the show, vendors will receive a 50% refund.  After that there are no refunds (30 days prior to the show start date).

If the event is forced to cancel due to any COVID 19 health restrictions, Tall Cloud Productions will do our best to offer vendors full or partial refunds.  The amount refunded will depend on how close to the date the event is cancelled and how much show management has already spent on non refundable show costs.  At the very least, vendors will be offered full credits to use towards future events.
