YOUTH VENDORS

The Owl Fair is very proud to feature young makers! These kids and youth have such creativity and dedication to what they make.  No fee to participate in either the virtual market or craft show but we ask that 10% of vendor proceeds be donated to a charity of your choosing. All products must be constructed and designed by the vendor.

FAQ

What is the Craft Tour?

Vendors are going to be setting up their booths throughout the city, safely social distanced in their yards, driveways, living rooms and studios. An interactive map will show shoppers where to find all their favourite vendors!

What is the Virtual Market?

Vendors will be showcased online through videos, tutorials and shop tours on our social media. As an added bonus, some vendors will even be releasing limited edition items, or offering discount codes or free shipping!

Can I apply for just the online version or just the craft tour without doing the other?

You can apply just for the online version without doing the craft tour, or you can apply for the tour which includes the online features as well.
