Calling all Utah makers! Celebrate the season at the Second Annual Craft Lake City Holiday Market! This year, Craft Lake City is offering two exciting ways to apply to participate in our Annual Holiday Market:
Option One: In Person! Craft Lake City is excited to return to The Monarch in Ogden’s Nine Rails Creative DIstrict for the Second Annual Craft Lake City Holiday Market. Now a two-day event, the in-person market will be held on Fri., Dec. 4 from 4 p.m. - 10 p.m. and Sat., Dec. 5 from 11 a.m.- 5 p.m. A new set of artisans will participate each day of the market. Craft Lake City will be taking careful precautions to create a safe environment for makers and attendees based on governmental covid-19 guidelines. Masks will be required to be worn by all attendees, staff, participants and volunteers. Due to social distancing measures, limited exhibitor spots are available. In-house Monarch artists will open their studios for the event. Applications for the in-person Second Annual Craft Lake City Holiday market are open to artisans through Tue., Oct. 13.
Option Two: Online Market with Virtual Events! Are you interested in participating in our Annual Holiday Market but not yet ready to vend at an in-person event? Craft Lake City understands and is happy to provide an alternative—the Online Craft Lake City Holiday Market. This market will emphasize retail sales by highlighting artisan profiles through a brand new web design that will allow creatives the autonomy to update and organize information that best describes them. Similar to past Craft Lake City artisan profiles, product images, bios, links to web stores and social media links will be included. New to the format will be the option to include IGTV, vimeo or youtube video links (think DIY Videos, intro videos, studios tours, etc.). The Online Craft Lake City Holiday Market will launch Nov. 1 and run through Nov. 30, with two live virtual meetup events taking place on Fri., Nov. 6 & Fri., Nov. 20 from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. Applications for the Virtual Craft Lake City Holiday market are open to artisans through Tue., Oct. 20.
Both Holiday Market platforms will feature handmade gifts by dozens of Utah’s top artisans. Please review the Holiday Market Artisan Prospectus (https://craftlakecity.com/holiday-market/holiday-market-exhibitor-prospectus/) before applying, and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Artisans may apply and participate in both versions of the Craft Lake City Holiday Market, but potential exhibitors must complete separate applications for the in-person market and online market in order to be considered by the jurors.
Please note that there are separate non-refundable application fees required for the In-Person and Online Markets to help support Craft Lake City’s nonprofit administrative costs.
