Join us as a vendor during May Fair 2024!

We are excited to invite vendors, local artisans, community groups and organizations seeking to do outreach and promotion to be part of the 66th Annual Spruce Hill Community Association May Fair, taking place SATURDAY May 11th, 2024 12-6pm at Clark Park, 43rd & Chester Avenue.

Space is limited and priority will be given to local community organizations and artisans. Vendor fees are set affordably low (all $40 or less for the day), reflecting our mission to connect the neighborhood with local groups and artisans. No second-hand goods or commercial products please – this is a day to showcase works that local artisans have produced themselves.

Please note that we are unable to accept vendor applications from businesses/organizations that plan to sell prepared food or beverage items at tables due to Health Department regulations in relation to our permitting process for the Fair. Food vendors with a free-standing and separately permitted truck/cart may still be able to participate. If you have a truck/cart, please contact Evan Johnstone ([email protected]) who can discuss this further with you.

To submit an application, prospective vendors are invited to request a table online by SUN MAY 5th* follow this link.

We provide a 6-foot table, table covering and chair in a 10-foot space for the day. We assign locations and will give notice regarding exact location by e-mail a few days before the event. Guidelines: No displays on the ground. No products that compete with raffle. No recorded music or generators.

Applications will be reviewed in the order received and if you are selected to participate, you will receive e-mail notification along with instructions for online payment submission. If selected, please plan to arrive after 10:30AM to give us time to set up. Look for parking in lots around SJU/USciences and Woodland Avenue. NO vehicles in the park under any circumstances. 

Our policy is to work around any threatening showers if at all possible and hold the event as planned. However, in the event of significant rain, we will have to cancel the event and if you choose, you will be given a refund of 50% of the vendor fee. You may also elect to donate the remainder of the vendor fee. We cannot provide a full refund as we are an all volunteer non-profit community organization and will have already outlaid money for May Fair expenses including table rental deposits. If we need to cancel, you will be notified as soon as the decision is made so you can plan accordingly. Your submission of payment (once application reviewed and accepted) is your indication that you understand and accept these conditions.

If you have questions, please e-mail Monica Calkins.
