Become a Vendor

The 2016 festival will take place on Saturday, Aug. 20 and Sunday, Aug. 21  at the Salem Willows in Salem, Mass.  We are inviting 30 to 40 vendors in the following categories:

  • Art glass
  • Photography
  • Stained glass
  • Visual arts
  • Pottery
  • Musical instruments and accessories
  • Jewelry
  • Wind chimes
  • Import clothing
  • Fine handcrafts
  • Ceramic arts
  • Hats and bags
  • Handcrafted soaps and candles

Vendors will be selected on a juried basis. Our first jury date is July 1, but early acceptance will be considered upon request.  We’ll continue to accept applications until all the slots are full.   Fees are $75 for one day or $125 for two days for artisans.

We’ll also have a select number of spots for corporate marketing. These cost $200 for one day or $350 for two days.

501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations will be provided free space on a first-come, first-served basis. Nonprofits
should contact vendors@salemjazzsoul.org for more information.

We do not accept applications from food and beverage vendors.

A vendor application, instructions and guidelines can be downloaded here: 2016 Vendor Application.

Additionally, the City of Salem requires all vendors to fill out a criminal background check, found here: CORI 2013 (MS Word Doc), or CORI 2013 (PDF File).

Both forms must be completed and mailed, along with a check for the full payment, to Sarah Corbett c/o SJSF, P.O. Box 4511, Salem MA 01970 before your application will be processed.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Sarah at vendors@salemjazzsoul.com

Thank you for your interest in joining us in this exciting venture in Salem.
