RETROFAIRE 2017 Call to Vendors

The Northampton Arts Council invites vendors of vinyl records and other vintage wares to apply to our 4th Annual RETROFAIRE.

RETROFAIRE takes place on Saturday September 9, 2017 in downtown Northampton at the area between Thornes Market and the Parking Garage. This year the event will feature a variety of Dj's spinning vinyl.

The open-air market is produced by the Northampton Arts Council. Our goal is to showcase the most creative artisans, unique retro clothing vendors, and hard-to-find vintage instruments and vinyl albums. All proceeds 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.

We would love to have you and your records and wares present, the vendor fee is only $75 for a 10ft x 10ft space or $40 for a half table (you must have a vendor friend to share the space with). Vending spots are limited so please don’t wait, if you are interested and would like more information please feel free to contact Peter McQuillan, Assistant Producer, Northampton Arts Council, 413-563-0162,
