Apply to be a vendor at FUSE
We are still accepting applications to be a vendor at FUSE!
We’re looking for interesting, quality businesses and groups to complement our amazing shops, restaurants, and cafes for two beautiful summer days: August 17 and 18. We’re also excited to create a new “Makers Marketplace” on the street this year, and have created a special rate to welcome the city’s most creative people to show Westboro what you’ve got!
Our Non-BIA Member rates to set up for the two days are as follows:
- Businesses: $700
- Makers/Artisans: $300
- Charities/Non-profits: $200
Please submit your application here. Note that all applications will be assessed by the Westboro Village BIA to ensure they are a proper fit for our free, family-friendly festival, and that they don’t take away from our incredible businesses that make Westboro shine.
Please note that if you’re a member of the Westboro Village BIA, you’re already “in” the festival at no charge and many details will be sent directly to you soon.
