become a vendor

festival info


We are striving to create a festival this year that welcomes everyone, because everyone is ready to enjoy Michigan and everything it has to offer.  Gateway to the Thumb Arts & Antiques Festival wants to help you safely enjoy this event.  We are putting in place a few changes that will help facilitate this environment.  Each indoor vendor space will have 10’ of separation and all doors and windows will be open for airflow.  Throughout the fairgrounds, hand sanitation stations will be set up.  Bathrooms will be cleaned regularly and social distancing in lines is also encouraged.​

We will be omitting the vendor coffee and snack area, but the new office will be available to eat your lunch or rest in the air conditioning.  This office is also reserved for emergency situations.

We are jumping into the festival later than we normally would and therefore ask your help in promoting the show.  Please circulate all of the flyers that we send to you anywhere you can to aid in getting the word out.  We will go forward regardless of any outside circumstances.  We are spending lots of money in advance and as a result there will not be any refunds.  We are all in this together.
