Information for Prospective Vendors

Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis through September 28, 2018.

Applicants will be notified of their acceptance status no later than October 12. 

Greenbelt Recreation is pleased to support local fine artists, artisans, writers, musicians and filmmakers in the sale of their own, original creations. A limited number of spaces are available for youth exhibitors. Non-profit groups also participate in this show; groups may sell wares and memberships, and/or promote community awareness of their activities. Groups are strongly encouraged to sell or raffle art and crafts related to their mission if possible.

Merchandise restrictions: kit crafts and imported crafts are not permitted. Commercially produced goods also are not permitted (with limited exceptions). Edible goods are permitted from adult exhibitors as long as they meet Maryland state health department guidelines. Home improvement companies, personal care product distributors and other non-arts based businesses are not eligible to participate. 

There is no fee to apply. Booth fees are due upon acceptance to the show. Fees vary by applicant status and booth assignment. Professional fees are $50 and $80. Discounted rates are offered for authors, musicians, filmmakers, youth and non-profit groups.
