RETROFAIRE 2015 Vendor Application

The Northampton Arts Council is excited to announce the second annual RETROFAIRE, an open-air market featuring a treasure trove of vintage clothing, jewelry, and design, as well as hard-to find musical instruments and vinyl records.

RETROFAIRE will be held on Saturday, September 12th from 11AM to 6PM in conjunction with the Northampton Jazz Festival. Vendors will be set up in the space between Thorne’s Market and the Northampton Parking garage, around the corner from Herrell's Ice Cream.

Click HERE for directions. 

Please contact us as soon as possible considering the vending spaces will be reserved on a first come first serve basis. If you are in need of a table and/or
electricity please let us know and we will provide these for a small fee. We look forward to continuing this annual tradition with your collaboration and support!

All registration fees benefit the Northampton Arts Council’s BJ Goodwin Grant. A grant designed to provide direct assistance to a Northampton-based artist, writer or arts organization in recognition of exceptional work and to support the further development of artistic talents.
