If you have a product or service to sell or advertise, we’d love to have you as part of our festival.
Market vendors may include commercial businesses, 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 Monday, August 5. 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/exhibitor 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 17
11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, August 18
Exhibitor spaces should 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 12’x12’. No part of your display/product may protrude beyond your 12x12’ 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.
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 FOOD/BEVERAGE 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 time is dependent on where your space is located and will be either Friday, August 16, between 6-9 p.m. or Saturday, August 17, between 7-9 a.m. You will be notified of your space assignment and set-up details by email one week prior to the event. Volunteers will be available if you need assistance locating your space. All vehicles must be out of the festival area and moved to parking spaces by 9 p.m. Friday and 9:15 a.m. Saturday.
Since exhibitors 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 and patrol overnight, as well as during the event. Neither the City of North Canton nor the North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce will be held liable for loss of, or damage to, merchandise or displays.
