View the Craft Culture Exhibitor Manual for all important show details, times, and terms and conditions.
What is the application process?
We accept applications through our online form only, which will be linked on this page on between May 29th and June 24th. All applicants will be notified by email with acceptance results between June 25th- July 1st . If accepted, booth sizes requested on the application will be awarded on a first come first serve basis based on the date of your application. Accepted applicants will have 7 business days from the date of the acceptance email to pay the full amount of the booth fees.
Who can apply?
Craft Culture is a juried show. Acceptance is based on the quality, originality and craftsmanship of the work to be sold. Other factors include booth display, product packaging and product categories within each show so that no one category is saturated. Only work produced by you or under your direct supervision will be considered. Work represented by dealers or agents will not be allowed. Sorry folks, this includes Avon, Mary Kay, Stella and Dot, Norwex etc.
Can Craft Distilleries/Wineries/Breweries apply for this event?
Unfortunately licencing gets complicated at this venue, so we are unable to accept any vendors selling alcohol.
How much does it cost?
Booth prices range from $260 – $460 depending on size. Corners are available for an extra $75.
What is included?
Booths include a 3′ high drapery side wall, 8′ high drapery back wall, and one power outlet.
Can I share a booth?
Sorry, unfortunately booth sharing is no longer allowed.
Can I bring my own table?
You bet! Vendors are welcome to bring along any display items including tables, chairs, floor covering etc. Our show contractor, Showtime Event & Display, can also rent any of the common items if needed (see order package above).
Is internet available?
Unfortunately dedicated wireless internet is not available in this building. If you rely on an internet connection for your sales, your best bet is to purchase a mobile internet stick or use your 3G on your smartphone or tablet. It is possible for Shaw to run a dedicated WIFI/Hardwired modem for you, but the prices are pretty hefty. Please contact Showtime Event & Display for more information.
Where can we park?
A limited number of dedicated vendor parking stalls are available in the side parking lot directly in front of the loading bay at Prospera Place. These spaces are available first come first serve. Vendors are responsible for purchasing a reduced weekend rate parking pass for these spaces, available through the parking ticket machines in the parking lot. All other vendors are responsible for finding on-street or alternate parking near the building. There are quite a few free or cheap options in the vicinity.
Things happen. What is the cancellation policy?
Cancellations must be requested in writing. If requested 60 days or more before the show, vendors will receive a full refund less a $100 cancellation fee. If cancelled 60 to 30 days before the show, vendors will receive a 50% refund. After that there are no refunds (30 days prior to the show start date).
Vendor Testimonials from previous shows produced by Tall Cloud Productions Inc.
Well Karalyn, I do think that you did an absolutely awesome job with the show – so professional! Every time I opened Castanet or Facebook I saw marketing for this show – well done! I also saw shoppers with their grab bags and asked one shopper about the bag and she was extremely pleased with it. I was pleased with my sales for the weekend and am sure your hard work resulted in my success! Jan Brown - Simple Pleasures
