Hello friends & fellow makers of beautiful things!
been asked by the Dundas West BIA (Business Improvement Association) to
organize a ‘handmade market’ to hit the streets as part of the first ever
Dundas West Fest, taking place on June 8th
West Fest is a one-day street festival that will shut down Dundas St. West from
Lansdowne St. to Roxton Rd, just east of Ossington. The festival will run from 11am–10pm, offering a full day of
music, art, kids’ activities, food & drink, extended patios, shopping and
location is prime. This neighbourhood has become a pretty hip hub offering some
of the city’s best in art and design, as well as tons of great vintage shops, a
bunch of trendy and delicious brunch spots, and, most importantly, an awesome
community that genuinely appreciates and supports locally made goods and
independently run businesses like ours!
My goal is
to bring together a group of unique but complimentary makers, creators
and entrepreneurs for a day-long street market called:
reaching out to you because I believe that you have a sharp brand and well
executed product that I know you stand behind with pride and passion. The focus
is on showcasing local talent and unique, high-quality, handcrafted items, with
the goal of giving you great brand exposure and the capacity for exponential

are responsible for the set up and display of your items (including tables,
chairs, tents, etc.)
are responsible for the sales of your items.
* You are obligated to participate
in the full duration of the event (11am-10pm)
* The event will run rain or
On top of
what the BIA is already committed to doing, I will provide promotion and
advertising via multiple social media platforms. In addition to this, vendors
are encouraged to promote within their own networks to let your fans know where
they can find your goods!
Also, if you
know of other vendors who might be interested in participating, please share!
Time is of
the essence here as I have had to move very quickly to put this plan into
action. I ask that you do the same and get back to me with your interest
ASAP. Spaces are limited and some are already taken! Please
don't hesitate to direct any questions and concerns my way.
forward to hearing from you!
P.S. I am working on developing a
monthly market that will take place at a top secret and totally awesome Dundas
West location throughout the summer... so what I’m saying is, this street
market is just the start of something wonderful!
