Information for Prospective Vendors
 This show is currently full.
We invite you to apply for the waitlist 
after reviewing the information below. 

The Greenbelt Recreation Department 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.

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.

Our “waitlist” is actually a pool of alternates. Vendors on the waitlist are contacted promptly if and when another vendor working in a similar medium (photography, sewing, jewelry, etc) withdraws from the show. Openings may arise at any time between now and Sunday morning, December 4. Applying for the waitlist will enable our staff to notify you when next year’s application becomes available (by March, 2017).

IMPORTANT: When you access the application, create a simple online profile by signing in; see the 
yellow box at the top of the information page. This will allow you to save your work as you go.
