$50 registration fee

Outdoors, we will utilize the huge backlot and offer 10x10 ft spaces to artists, creators, and makers that want to sell their work and interact with community members. This will be a more casual setting compared to the curated indoor space. If interested, please email us with a brief description of what you do and how you would like to utilize a vendor space.

Vendor spots are first come, first serve. Once we have filled all 24 vendor spots, we will start a wait-list. If anyone drops out, we will begin reaching out to those on the list.

There are many volunteer positions that need to be filled. From setting up, to running the door, to helping with performance transitions, and everything in between. We’re looking for people to come and volunteer the day of. We want volunteers to enjoy the event as well, so we are setting up shifts. The early shift being from 4pm-8pm and the late shift being from 8pm-12am. We will be providing food, water, and admission to those volunteering. We will also need volunteers to help us disassemble the gallery walls on Saturday after the event. Let us know if you would be interested in volunteering.
