Information on this page is intended for vendors who have received acceptance email notifications. Jurying for the festival happens in April and is now closed for the 2022 season.

This year we are planning a full-scale, in person festival, and will also continue with our online shopping option for customers to purchase and pick-up curbside. All plans will be contingent on COVID-19 guidelines from both the CDC and the Washington State Department of Health and we will send along more information about this as plans are made, but we are excited to continue with both an online and in-person festival this year!

In an effort to offer more “no contact” methods of communication, we have put all the Holiday Festival Guidelines and Information on our website here. We know it is long, but please read all this information carefully before committing to the festival. We will also be mailing this information to you and if you are feeling no-so-techie you are still welcome to send in hard-copies of your paperwork.
