Here is information for Vendors who may wish to bring their wares to Vancoufur 2023. We have several opportunities for vendors of all levels to sell their wares.
Please read each section carefully as there are different processes for applications and expectations for each area.
The Dealer’s Den is our main vendor hall. Artists are welcome in the Dealer’s area as well as more commercial vendors. It is advised that you have some vending experience and a good selection of product if you intend to apply for the Dealer’s Den. The Dealer’s Den is open for 3 days (Fri-Sun), and you are expected to maintain your table over that time. The Dealer’s Den is in a room that is locked at the end of the day, so you do not need to take your display down each day.
The application period is 3 weeks long. You will need to submit a portfolio of your wares. A selection committee will review all portfolios and make selections. For more information and rules, please read the Dealer’s Den Application page.
Dealer’s Applications will open from Aug 22-Sept 12.
The Artist Alley is ideal for vendors just starting out and wanting to get their feet wet, or people who may only want to vend for a short time on specific days and don’t want a weekend commitment. The Artist Alley changes on a daily basis, so every day its exciting to check out. Reservations can be made for 1 or 2 days in advance, and there is also drop-in tables available for those who may just want to come and sell for a few hours spontaneously. Artist may sit for a few hours or the whole day. The Artist Alley operates Fri-Sun.
Reservations for the Artist Alley will be available after the Dealer’s Den applications and selections are made and announced.
