Meet Your Maker is back! This annual event is designed to provide a platform for artists and makers of every kind. It offers a great opportunity to exhibit and sell their goods to our wider community. This year we mark our 3rd Anniversary, and we are so pleased you are interested in participating. In response to overwhelming demand, we have broadened our presence and are excited to announce that “Meet Your Maker” will now span a delightful two-day festival!

Meet Your Maker will take care of promoting and organizing the event, always with our vendors’ best interests in mind. Our goal is to inspire you to make outstanding and imaginative creations, and we’ll make sure there’s an enthusiastic audience to appreciate and buy your work.

TO APPLY……………………………………………..


  • Your creations should be handcrafted by you! This event is dedicated to handmade items. Everything displayed in your designated area should be something you’ve made. While we understand that the holiday craft fair season can be busy, we kindly request that you prioritize Meet Your Maker. It’s okay to have a partner to help you, but someone else can’t present your work on your behalf.
  • All the products you showcase should come from your own original ideas, recipes, designs, and so on. We’re keenly interested in the authentic work that originates directly from your own creative mind.

How are participants chosen?
Our selection process is influenced by various factors. Our primary goal is to nurture creativity. If you’re crafting something distinct and innovative, your chances of being chosen are quite high.

How will you be informed of acceptance?
You can expect an email from us by October 1th. Additionally, the list of vendors will be made available on our website, Facebook, and Instagram. Regrettably, due to the high volume of applications, we won’t be able to email those whose applications are not accepted.

How to secure your spot?
Accepted vendors are required to make their payment by noon on Saturday, October 7th. Feel free to reach out if you need to discuss payment arrangements.

What about booth sizes?
Full booths will measure at least 10 x 10 feet. Vendors are required to bring their own 10×10 tent with weights. 

What will I need to bring?
This event is outdoors. Each vendor is expected to be self-sufficient and bring their own 10×10 tent, weights, tables, chairs, payment system, display, and signage. We will have limited access to electricity, so please be prepared with backup chargers. This event is rain or shine. Please dress appropriately for the weather. There will be no refund on vendor fee in the event of rain.

Meet Your Maker collects vendor fees to cover event expenses including security, parking attendants, marketing, and other setup. To maintain reasonable fees, we also invite sponsors to contribute, enabling us to accommodate as many vendors as possible.
