Artisan Market Application 2021

Saturday, May 1, 9am-6pm & Sunday, May 2, 12am-6pm

Now in its 21st year, Tulip Time Festival invites you apply and participate in the 2020 Artisan Market! As is tradition, the Artisan Market will be a juried show, mandating all artists display only handmade and original work. Buy/sell vendors are strictly prohibited. The jury strives to ensure the highest quality art, while also minimizing duplication. 

During this unpredictable time it is so hard to plan for what may or may not happen in the future. The safety of all vendors, volunteers and visitors is our top priority. For this reason all of our plans must include the ability to facilitate social distancing and control capacity. Therefore, we are planning some changes to this event:

1) We will relocate the Artisan Market to the outdoor grounds of Beechwood Church, 895 Ottawa Beach Road. This much larger space allows us to spread vendor booths out to help maintain social distancing practices. This location also allows crowd management by having a designated entrance/exit. In addition, timed-ticketing will be used for admission, which allows us to control the number of visitors at any given time.

2) There will be parking available for vendors, volunteers and for shoppers including the ability to unload at your designated tent space!

3) There will be a designated building for vendors and volunteers with an indoor bathroom and kitchen for snacks along with a great check-in area!

4) There will be space for food trucks on site!

5) There will be designated port-o-jon locations inside the area as well as outside the shopping area.

We are hopeful that these changes will allow this amazing event to take place in 2021! Of course, we must follow all guidelines and if something should change we reserve the right to adjust our plans.

If you are a vendor, you are able to apply starting Friday, December 18.
