Viva Calle SJ is a free program that temporarily closes miles of San Jose streets to bring communities together to walk, bike, skate, play, and explore the city like never before. 

Each year's event opens upwards of six miles of streets, through some of San Jose's most iconic neighborhoods for people to come out and play for the day! This allows bicyclists, walkers, skateboarders and general city explorers to traverse these streets safely, collectively and enjoyably. Between 2015 and 2016, attendance grew from 35,000 to over 100,000 people, and last year's attendance surged beyond 150,000!

What is SJMADE doing at Viva Calle SJ this year?

SJMADE will bring some of its favorite local makers of handcrafted goods and some of its favorite local makers of small batch food to create an experience teeming with locally made love at the Martial Cottle Park Hub. With such an ubiquitous sense of local pride in the air, the event proved to be a great moment for people proud of their city to come meet and shop their local maker businesses. 

What will SJMADE bring to the Martial Cottle Park Hub?

  • First and foremost, we'll be curating our maker market for makers whose presence, aesthetic and work will instill in the thousands upon thousands upon thousands of Viva Calle SJ participants a swelling and soaring sense of local pride.

  • While we are open to accepting makers [from or based] outside of San Jose and the South Bay, we'll definitely be factoring in one's locality while jurying applications.

  • Additionally, we'll be giving strong consideration to makers whose work celebrates bike culture or who locally makes bike gear or bike accessories.

  • Finally, we'll be giving strong consideration to makers whose work can be conveniently transported via tote bag or backpack or pannier by a bicyclist. This probably includes most makers but if a maker's work is very large or extremely fragile, this may not be the best event for them.

IMPORTANT DATES & DEADLINES

AUG. 20 TO SEPT. 16 - OPEN APPLICATIONS - ROLLING ADMISSION

During this period of time, we'll be receiving and reviewing applications. Upon receiving an application, it'll take us anywhere from three to five days to review the applicant. After completing the applicant review, we will send an admission notification email to the applicant (i.e. accepted, rejected or waitlisted). 

If you have applied and have not heard back from us after five days, email us at info@sanjosemade.com so we can address the issue as quickly as possible. 

Sept. 2 - ACCEPTED FOOD/DRINK MAKERS MUST SUBMIT COMPLETED TFF FORMS

If you are a food or drink maker and we have accepted your application to vend, you must submit your completed Temporary Food Facility Permit Form by Sept. 2, 2018 at 11:59 PM PST. If you have any questions about the TFF Form, send your inquiry to info@sanjosemade.com. If you do not submit your TFF Form by the stated deadline, we will have to rescind your acceptance to the event and you will not be able to participate.

SEPT. 16 - VENDOR LAYOUT & INFORMATION PACKETS EMAILED TO ACCEPTED VENDORS

On Sept. 16, we will send out a full vendor information packet containing vital information for vending at the event, including but not limited to load-in instructions, setup instructions, load-out instructions, vendor parking information and any other information relevant to vending at the event.

 

REFUND POLICY

If you need to withdraw from the event, your booth fee is fully refundable (minus the $10 non-refundable jurying fee) until Sept. 2, 2018 at 11:59 PM. For all refunds, processing times may apply. No refunds will be issued after Sept. 2, 2018 at 11:59 PM. When you withdraw from the event, you are forfeiting your booth space. You may not transfer your booth space to anyone else. 

We completely understand how last-minute occurrences can affect one's ability to participate in an event. However, we are always aiming to have full events and any vendors dropping out at the last minute negatively affects the quality of our event as well as our ability to find replacement vendors. 

 

WHAT DO WE CONSIDER WHEN REVIEWING AND JURYING AN APPLICATION?

  • If you've vended at a previous San Jose Made event or pop-up, we'll take into consideration our experience(s) in browsing and shopping your work and your booth.

  • We review your website and/or online shop to get a better understanding of the quality of your work and your story.

  • We review your business' Instagram (if available) and your business' Facebook Page (if available) to get a better understanding of your most recent activity as it relates to your work and your story.

  • While we are open to accepting makers [from or based] outside of San Jose and the South Bay, we'll definitely be factoring in one's locality while jurying applications.

  • We'll be giving strong consideration to makers whose work celebrates bike culture or who locally makes bike gear or bike accessories.

  • We'll be giving strong consideration to makers whose work can be conveniently transported via tote bag or backpack or pannier by a bicyclist. This probably includes most makers but if your work is very large or extremely fragile, this may not be the best event for you.

  • We also take into account the number of maker applicants who make similar products to you when arriving at our final decisions. For the sake of our vendors and the sake of our shoppers, it's important to provide a variety within certain product types without creating an overwhelming and overly competitive experience. For instance, if we accepted 30 vendors who all sold soap, we imagine it'd be difficult for most if not all of those vendors to succeed despite the fact that they all make tremendous, high-quality soaps.
