8/21 update: Interested in a last minute vending space? E-mail us for info! : SteampunkFarmersMarket@gmail.com
Vendors (Arts, crafts, food, etc)
Food Vendors - Please e-mail us first before submitting a paper application!
Spots for 2018 are $15 per vendor/group. There are also additional optional sponsorship options geared towards our small business and crafts vendors who would like a little bit of extra promotion with us. This year we are also opening sponsorship options up to any steampunk vendors/artists/creators etc who would like to donate towards SPFM2018 in return for advertisement, even if you do not intend to vend at our event. Details are listed on the 2018 Sponsorship Form.
Music-Shows-Buskers-Activities-Events-Tea Parties, Etc
Do you wish to preform in some capacity at The Steampunk Farmers Market? We are open to hear pitches for just about anything that would relate to a steampunk crowd. If Tea Parties or other food related events are your gig, we do have a full kitchen on site that the event has access to.
We have three basic loose categories for entertainment:
Headliners -bands, major acts, etc. These are the groups we pay to attend our event. Our budget for paid entertainment tends to be fairly small given the nature of our event, so our ability to book paid headliners is limited.
Buskers - Preforming for tips, or just for the fun of it. The event does not pay you. This category can include wandering performers and small stationary shows.
Ticketed Events - We do not pay you, you sell tickets through us or your own media to a show/event/activity.
Even if you do not fit into these categories and if you are interested in preforming, e-mail us with what you would like to do and we will go from there! If you are an individual or group that would expect payment to preform form us please include a rough quote for your services in the initial e-mail.
We are seeking:
-All types of Steampunk themed vendors
Crafts - Artists - Authors - Clothing - Jewelry - Etc
Even if you are not strictly Steampunk, if you feel your wares would appeal to the Steampunk crowd you will be welcome. If you are unsure, contact us first.
-Entertainers, event hosts, etc and more
Do you have an idea for something fun and want to participate? Do you want to put on an act, sideshow, or other presentation? Feel free to apply via the application, or contact us first if you wish to run your idea past us. We have several Entertainment categories this year for anyone interested in participating.
-Cosplay groups and nonprofits are welcome. Any group not intending to sell merchandise or make a profit is welcome to ask for a free spot.
-Do you have a Steampunk themed group that wishes to have a presence at our event? Contact us!
-Food Trucks and Food Vendors (e-mail us first instead of just sending in a form!)
We are NOT looking for:
-Direct Sales Associates
(Origami Owl, Mary Kay, Avon, etc). If you are a direct sales associate who believes your items would appeal to Steampunks feel free to inquire and pitch to us why you feel your items would be welcome at a Steampunk event. We are an event geared towards small business and hand made items and we do not feel most direct sales are a good fit for us.
We retain the right to refuse any vendor who we do not feel is appropriate for our event.
