Stall Holder Information

 

Would you like to be involved in the Celtic Markets?

We aim to include a diverse range of stalls in the Celtic Markets to be held on Saturday 26 March at the Celtic Gathering in the Warwick Showgrounds. We would like to invite potential vendors to complete a Stall Holder Application Form.

 

We expect approximately 4000 visitors to attend the Celtic Gathering on Saturday.

Do you fit the CelticFest vibe? 

To emphasise the Celtic theme we are asking vendors to #getyourcelticon and dive headfirst into our Celtic Markets.

Whether you are selling local, handmade, or sourced products we ask that you embody the Celtic Spirit where you can. Create a Celtic-inspired product for the festival, display your products with some Celtic Flair, or don a kilt! Whatever you sell we ask that for this festival you put a Celtic twist on your stall.

 

We are looking for Stall Holders who fit in with one of our themes with an emphasis on authenticity and quality: 

  • Celtic inspired quality goods – especially Irish and Scottish, lost trades or medieval-themed

  • Celebration of the beauty of the Southern Downs and surrounds – what we make and create eg art, pottery, photography, clothing, soaps, candles, food (e.g. jams, chutneys, baking, honey), skincare, and so on, local vendors making and/or creating.

  • Community-focused - Local NFP are welcome. 

  • Food and Beverage vendors – especially with a Celtic theme for example menu items with a Celtic name and ingredient/s which are promoted on a poster at your stand; You could have Celtic decorations on your stand; wear Celtic inspired outfits or name a specialty product for the day.

  • We expect of 4000 visitors between 8am and 10pm and invite all food vendors to apply.

 

Whether your stall is 100% on theme (for example, Clan Memorabilia) or you sell a few Celtic-inspired products along with a range of other things (for example, a Celtic knot soap or candle) it doesn't' matter. What matters is that you DO in fact offer Celtic or Celtic-inspired products in some capacity.
