Annual WonderArts Holiday Market
The Annual WonderArts Holiday Market is free and open to the public and features a variety of local art, crafts, body care products, festive items, and tasty treats from over 40 vendors! Lunch options made by the Craftsbury General Store are available for purchase and a children’s table with fun crafts and a scavenger hunt can entertain kids while parents browse the shops. Be sure to check out the localvore lottery and Christmas tree raffle! Money raised from this event will benefit the programs offered by WonderArts Vermont.
WonderArts is proud to present the Holiday Market as a celebration of this community’s local artisans, as we continue our work to cultivate the creativity of youth and adults through the arts while supporting the local creative economy.
This event is held on in the Craftsbury Academy Gym on a Saturday in December. Date for the 2019 Holiday Market is TBD.
The date for the Holiday Market is based on the Craftsbury Academy athletics schedule and will be determined and announced in August. Vendor Registration opens in September and is available on a first come, first served basis. Vendors are not officially registered until their payment is received. Once registration is full, a vendor waitlist will be utilized. Vendors who cancel their registration less than 2 weeks prior to the Holiday Market will not receive a refund unless a substitute vendor is found.
There are 2 options for booth sizes and vendors may only have one booth (no doubles). Large Booths are ideal for vendors who have a multi-table set up, while Medium Booths are perfect for vendors who use one table. Tables are not included but basic folding chairs are available. Most Large Booths are in the middle of the gym, while all Medium Booths are around the sides. There are limited outlets so vendors requiring electricity (particularly those with Large Booths) may need to bring a long extension cord and tape to secure it safely to the floor. We do our best to honor all requests for booth locations, proximity to other vendors, etc. but please note some requests may not be able to be accommodated.
