Eligibility and Requirements
Our reputation has been built on selecting outstanding and quality products. We work hard to keep the show fresh and interesting each year to attract both new and returning customers. Sometimes that means not accepting a previously selected applicant in a particular year.
To be eligible for selection, you must:
Be the producer/maker of your product represented by your application. We will not accept vendors who sell products that are not made/produced by themselves.
Present a professional booth display. All tables are required to have skirting down to the floor.
Be on site for the duration of the show each day, every day. There is to be no sharing of booth spaces from one day to the next between different vendors.
Food Exhibitors must have food-handling certificate and work out of a locally inspected kitchen
If accepted, Food Exhibitors (ready to eat and shelf stable) must fill out the Food Vendors Form on the Grey Bruce Public Health Unit's website (link below) at least 1 month prior to show start date
All submissions must include:
Booth Display Photo or Diagram
Biography and Craft/Art Statement
A brief description and price point of the products you would like to sell
Food Exhibitors must provide detailed food sampling procedures
Applications are considered by a selection committee which looks for originality, quality and presentation, as well as diversity of products and price points. Jurying is a blind process - the submissions are considered without presenting the name of the applicant so an unbiased decision can be made. The jury reserves the right to decide the appropriateness of all products to be included in the show. Only juried products will be allowed into the show. Any new/additional products must be approved by the committee prior to the show. The decisions of the jury are final.
You will be notified by email of your application status by June 16th. If your work has been accepted, we will email you a contract that must be returned with full payment by August 16th. You will also receive pertinent information about the show. Failure to submit fees by August 16th, 2023 will result in the loss of your booth.
10% of the fees are withheld if you cancel before September 30th.
25% of the fees are withheld if you cancel between October 1st and October 15th.
50% of the fees are withheld if you cancel between October 16th and October 30th.
