VENDOR INFORMATION
& APPLICATION

Thank you for your interest in Stafford FallFest! We would like to invite you to attend Stafford FallFest in Stafford Springs, Connecticut, on October 2, from 12 PM to 6 PM. This is an all ages event nestled within beautiful Hyde Park, just adjacent to Downtown Main Street. This is a free, family-friendly event celebrating local music and makers that has developed into an established destination activity, attracting an increasing number of attendees each year (our last event - Summer Fest & Fireworks - was by approximately 4,500 attendees).  

Stafford is located seven miles from Exit 70 on Route 84, and less than 30 minutes from both Manchester and Enfield, Connecticut. With unique shops, abundant recreation opportunities and close proximity to numerous attractions, historic Stafford is a great place to spend the day and celebrate by night. Our promotion includes social media, print media releases, calendar listings (print and online), flyer distribution, lawn signs, websites, and more. 

MERCHANT MARKET

We're on the hunt and currently booking a variety of artisans, producers, and makers for our Maker Market. Our goal is to highlight small batch, handcrafted items with intrinsic value that represent the best of our region. We're seeking a variety of mediums, including bath products, specialty foods, hand-spun yarn, apparel, one-of-a-kind jewelry, pottery/ceramics, woodworks, photography, mixed-media crafts, up-cycled goods, metalworking and more!
