Cleveland Bazaar is Northeast Ohio's longest running indie handmade event. We've been doing shows since 2004 in spaces all over Cleveland, and continue to grow from year to year.

We welcome applications from artists outside Northeast Ohio, especially for our larger holiday shows, and we particularly welcome applications from artists typically underrepresented at handmade events. All shows are juried, so some product categories are more competitive than others.

Cleveland Bazaar has a longstanding tradition of being welcoming and inclusive, and of treating our fellow artists like family. We expect that you will treat your peers with respect and consideration, and that you will do your best to help promote and otherwise make the shows a success.

We are adding additional workshops to our calendar that will help our artists improve their marketing and communications skills. Please join our private vendor group on Facebook after you've submitted your application, where we post opportunities such as these.

All Cleveland Bazaar applications will be made using Submittable, and all billing* will be done via Xero invoice unless other arrangements are made. (You can use PayPal to pay these invoices).

*Timely invoice payments are expected; unless you have communicated with the show organizers for an extension, you risk losing your place if you do not pay on time.

Hello and welcome! Cleveland Bazaar will return to Market Square Park in Ohio City on the first and third Saturdays of each month May-October in 2023 and our maker application is now open!

Deadline for all applications is March fifth 2023.

You must have all application materials submitted by that date to be considered, and we have instituted a $10 jurying fee to ensure only serious applicants. This covers all events listed on this application and is a non-returnable, one time fee. Please note that our events are handmade- and local designer-focused and we do not accept MLM sellers such as LuLaRoe, Jamberry, etc.

Market Square Park
Held in the park across from the West Side Market from 10-4:00, this show gets extra traffic from not only the Market but also other events happening in the neighborhood. You will need a 10x10' tent. Spaces are $75 per date.

Show dates
Please note: all vendors are required to mark themselves as "going" and add the events for which they are accepted on their business Facebook page calendar. Find those on Facebook here as soon as they are posted.

Jurying, acceptance and billing:

Your jury fee is nonrefundable and was instituted many years ago to ensure serious applicants only. Each show date is $75 and payment is expected before day of show. You will receive bills via email for each show to which you are accepted. If you cannot do one or more of the shows you've been selected for, please email us ASAP so we can replace you.

Your responsibilities as a Bazaar vendor:

We expect you to do your part in promoting the events. We have a private vendor group on Facebook if you need help. Please add Shannon as a FB friend and ask to be added if you aren't a member. If you are accepted you will receive instructions, graphics and more to help you with promotion. If you can't or won't take the time to promote the shows you are in, please do not apply.
