Vendor Information

We have 10 x 10 ft spots available for the duration of the Dundas West Fest, running Friday June 5, 2020 (6pm to 12:00am) and the full day Saturday June 6, 2020 (11am to 12:00am).  Exceptions of footprint size can be made only for food vendors, to a maximum up to 10 x 15 ft, in order to accommodate grills, roasters, stock, etc. This year we are reducing the number of vendors in order to have a more pleasant atmosphere and increase the amount of business for vendors that are programmed to be part of the festival.

All retail &/or non-food vendor applications must be received by April 1, 2020. An additional $50 will be added to the vendor fee after this date.

All food vendor and food truck applications must be received by April 1, 2020. An additional $75 will be added to the vendor fee after this date.

After your application is reviewed and if approved, we will send you a link for online payment through Square. Payment is due within 1 week of receiving this link. Your spot is only assured once payment is received. Cheques must be made out to Dundas West BIA and delivered in person.

Officially, the festival starts at 6pm on Friday June 5 and at 11am on Saturday June 6, but set-up starts at 2pm on Friday, so the earlier you set up, the sooner you can start serving customers in an orderly manner. We appreciate patience and cooperation during set-up and tear down.

Vendor Fees

Artisanal / Non-profit Exhibitors: $330.00

Local artists, artisans, non-profit organizations and non-food can apply to get a spot for 330.00 for the entire festival. An additional 50.00 will be added after April 1, 2020.

Half & Half - Artisanal / Commercial: $400.00

Some vendors do not fully fall into the artisanal and craft category, but rather, use mass-produced products and enhance them with artisanal designs, such as screen printing on mass produced t-shirts. We have reached a compromise solution for these vendors that falls in between the artisanal and commercial categories for 400.00 for the entire festival: if you use commercial manufacturing chains in your work, please apply in this category. An additional 50.00 will be added after April 1, 2020.
