Two Holiday Crafts Fairs will be held in conjunction with special Lake Forest Park Farmers Markets in 2022. These events will take place from 10am to 2pm on Sunday, November 20th and Sunday, December 18th.

Please note that as COVID conditions continue to evolve, so must our event plans. At present, our plan is to have some crafts vendors inside in the traditional location in the lower lobby of Town Center and other crafts vendors outside with the regular market vendors. This will allow us to welcome a full complement of vendors while minimizing crowding inside the mall.

However these plans could change in the lead-up to each event, depending on COVID numbers (pushing us outdoor) and/or weather conditions (pushing us indoor). On the application, please be sure to indicate via the designated tick boxes where you are willing to be placed for these events.

Below is the application with a detailed description of the application process. Please follow application guidelines carefully as the process has changed. Please review the insurance requirements carefully before applying or purchasing single event policies.

Applications must be received via email by Monday, October 10th for guaranteed consideration. Please note that applications will not be accepted via postal mail.

All items must be handmade in Washington by the individuals selling at the market. We seek a wide variety of media to represent a broad spectrum of creative endeavors and we look forward to seeing your submissions!
