New Section to Debut at Evergreen State Fair - Now Accepting Applications from Makers of Original, Handmade Goods to Showcase at Fair
Application to sell original, handmade goods at the Fair due August 7th
EVERETT, Wash., July 30, 2018 – The Evergreen State Fair plans to have a new section this year titled “Makers Market” which will showcase and sell original, handmade goods by local artisans and crafts people. The Fair calls all interested “makers” to submit an application by August 7, 2018 for consideration.
Makers have the option of choosing to show the entire twelve days of the fair (August 23-September 3) or a particular block of time:
- Block 1: First Weekend Thursday August 23-Sunday August 26
- Block 2: Weekdays Monday August 27-Thursday August 30
- Block 3: Second Weekend Friday August 31-Monday September 3
Last year, The Evergreen State Fair saw over 350,000 eager fair goers during its twelve day run.
“The Evergreen State Fair is all about fun, and we constantly ask ourselves, ‘how can we bring even more fun to our fair goers?’” said Shannon Hays, Spokesperson for Snohomish County Parks, Recreation and Tourism. “We think the Makers Market will be another exciting experience at the Fair for Makers and attendees.”
Those who wish to be a Makers Market vendor must have a valid business license, submit a completed application, and have enough inventory to sell for the time block they choose, with all goods being original and handmade by them or their business. Vendors are required to run their own booths, and booth fees will be due prior to opening day of the Fair.
The Makers Market Application can be found HERE. Submitting an application does not guarantee acceptance into the 2018 Fair. Learn more online HERE or contact Shannon Hays at Shannon.Hays@snoco.org or 425-409-7916.
