In the below application form select either date or both dates, spaces are limited, completing this form does not guarantee a stall, all applicants will be notified
NEW STALL SIZES
Time to think outside the box! The 3mx3m gazebo box, that is. What could you do with a 6ft long table space? For our August Art Bazaar Pop Up weekend (Saturday 12 – Sunday 13 August 2017), our Saturday market with Maitland’s Aroma Festival will be a mixture of regular gazebo stalls ($60) and these smaller pop-up stalls ($40). Our Sunday market at Wallsend Winter Fair will be all pop-up stalls! So we’re asking artists to get creative with how they display their artworks. You could try suitcases, baskets, wooden crates, with or without a table, or ditch the table all together and go with ladders, racks or bookshelves. Or some other kind of container or shelving we haven’t thought of yet. It’s a chance to be inventive and do something a bit different, and we’re more than a little excited to see what you come up with. Please leave your market tent at home but bring a tarp to cover up items if the weather turns

– A highly anticipated market held three times every year attracting visitors from Maitland, Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, Hunter region, day-trippers and holiday makers from surrounding areas.

– Many people find a gallery somewhat intimidating, so this is a great way to introduce Art to potential customers.

their site before leaving the event will not be welcome back.
– Public events can generate significant amounts of waste. It is estimated that each participant to
an event generates 1.2kg of waste. If our event attracts 25000 people, that’s 30,000kg waste
generated. Recycling and Reducing gives instant results. Up to 60% waste generated at events is
compostable and 20% is recyclable.
– The first step to reducing waste is avoiding waste generation. It requires us to change some of
our habits which create waste unnecessarily.
