I would like to be a vendor at the WCMA Christmas Market! What is the application process?
Thank you so much for your interest in being a vendor for the 2022 WCMA Christmas Market! Applications to be a vendor can be submitted online and are due by September 16th, 2022. At this time, market organizers will review the applications and select vendors to participate in the market. We will notify all applicants if they have been selected as a market vendor by September 30th, 2022
Is there a fee to be a vendor?
Yes, there is a $25 vendor fee for this year’s Christmas Market. This fee is due when you are notified that you have been accepted as a vendor for the market, and can be completed online. Further instructions will be provided to vendors when notification of acceptance is sent out on September 30th, 2022. 
Where will my display be located?
The Christmas Market takes place on the grounds of the Wellington County Museum and Archives, with activities and vendors located both indoors and outdoors. Due to a limited number of indoor spaces available, indoor spaces are assigned on a first come, first serve basis (based on when the vendor’s application was submitted). However, the feedback we received from vendors with an outdoor booth in the previous year was very positive and they were often the busiest in terms of sales and revenue.
What set up amenities will the WCMA provide to vendors?
The WCMA can provide each vendor with one 6-foot table, one chair and a 10x10 space for you to set up your display in. You are more than welcome to bring additional tables and chairs to complete your set up as needed. If you require access to electricity, please let us know in your application so we can ensure that your display is placed in proximity to an electrical outlet. You may need to bring an extension cord with you to access the electricity. 
Will tents be provided for outdoor vendors?
The WCMA has a small selection of tents that can be reserved for vendors on a first come, first serve basis. Please indicate on your application whether you will need a tent from the WCMA or if you can bring your own.
