The 40th Annual Holiday Faire will feature 100 talented local artists showcasing unique handmade gifts for purchase including holiday decorations, hand-blown glass, ceramics, jewelry, folk crafts, clothing, and more. The event offers an opportunity to shop and support local artists while experiencing the excitement of the season. This year’s event will take place at the Great Park Saturday, November 5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.   

Outdoor vendor spaces are 10' x 10' with a maximum of two pre-approved exhibitors per space, indoor spaces are 8’ x 8’. Exhibitors who would like to share an outdoor space should submit one application. Exhibitors are required to bring their own tables, chairs, table covers, and canopies with four 75lb safety weights. Vendors must have the ability to move their items into their space with minimal to no assistance from City staff. Because loading and unloading assistance is not guaranteed, vendors are encouraged to have a cart in good condition to move their inventory to and from their vehicles.

Jury notifications will be sent by September 16. If you are juried into the event, you will be required to present the following no later than September 26 to confirm your participation.

Submit your application through CAFE by August 22, 10:55 p.m. PST
