Market vendors may include artists, makers, direct sales, jewelry, apparel, crafters, boutique items, vintage collections, and prepackaged food items not intended to be consumed on-site.
Deadline (with payment in full) is Wednesday, July 14. No applications will be accepted after this date. The chamber reserves the right to limit the number of vendors per category. Submission of application does not guarantee a space. The final determination on all vendor spaces will be made by the Main Street Festival committee. If you are not accepted into the festival, your full application fee will be refunded to you. You will be notified by email of the committee’s acceptance/rejection of your application.
10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, August 14, 2021
Exhibitor spaces must be attended during these hours.
This is an outdoor festival and will be held regardless of weather. There will be no refunds.
Booth spaces are available on a paid-in-full and first-received basis.
Vendors/Exhibitors must provide their own E-Z Ups, canopies, tables, chairs, displays, screens, backdrops, etc.
All spaces are 10’x10’. No part of your display/product may protrude beyond your 10×10’ allotted space.
Winds and rain can impact the canopy or E-Z Up, so plan accordingly. Sand buckets, water buckets or weights must be used to secure the tent to resist the winds. Stakes may not be used on streets or sidewalks.
YOU MAY NOT SUBLET ANY PART OF YOUR SPACE WITHOUT EXPLICIT APPROVAL FROM THE CHAMBER.
Market vendors may request electricity at an additional cost. Electric availability is limited and will be given on a first to request, first to receive basis. Any vendor using a generator must be equipped with a 5 pound fire extinguisher.
Please submit full descriptions of all products/services to be sold and/or advertised. This applies to both new and returning participants. It is important that products/services are pre-approved so we can avoid placing two like products/services near each other or have an overabundance of similar products/services in the mix. ONLY CONCESSION VENDORS AND FOOD TRUCKS MAY SELL/DISTRIBUTE FOOD AND BEVERAGES. Commercial Exhibitors, Market Vendors/Exhibitors and Non-Profit/Political booths may not sell or freely distribute any food or beverages, including bottled water. This would place you in competition with the food vendors, who pay a higher fee for the privilege of providing food and beverages, and who are licensed and inspected by the Stark County Health Department.
Set-up instructions will be sent via email.
Since vendors are the first to arrive and the last to leave the event, parking should not be a problem. There will be on-street parking and parking lots available (if the businesses are not open).
North Canton Police will be on-site to secure the streets during set up and the event. The City of North Canton and the North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce will not be held liable for loss of, or damage to, merchandise or displays.
FESTIVAL STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS:
Festival volunteers and committee members will be available to offer assistance. Please do not hesitate to ask any of these volunteers and staff for help.
Fee is $130 for a single 10’x10’ outdoor space without electric / $200 for a double space.

North Canton Chamber member businesses receive a $30 discount on vendor spaces.
If the federal, state, or local governments decide to limit gatherings or cancel large events the 2021 Main Street Festival may be cancelled or postponed. The North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce will do whatever it takes to inform you as quickly as possible. 2021 reserved booth space will carry over to the 2022 Main Street Festival.
