Jurying: The Peterborough Folk Festival Vendors Market is a juried event and this application does not guarantee acceptance into the festival. Applications are reviewed by the Peterborough Folk Festival Arts and Crafts Team. All items to be sold must be handmade by the artist/craftsperson. Vendors will be selected based on the fit of products and/or services to the festival, the quality of work and the type of merchandise to be sold. We make an effort to present a varied selection of items in the market area and vendors may be rejected if a particular category of merchandise is over represented. In the event that your application is not accepted fees will be refunded, less the service charges associated with the web application form (roughly $2.)

There will be 2 rounds of jurying:
Early bird Deadline June 15th, 2019
Regular Bird Deadline August 1st, 2019

  You will be notified of the status of your application within one week of the deadline by which you applied at the latest.
