Admission Policy

We will be accepting applications on a rolling admissions basis. We will notify the applicant within five (5) business days of applying. All applications are juried by our application review team. Submitting your application does not mean your application will be accepted. If your application is NOT accepted, we will fully refund your fee. 

Due to demand, we are limiting vendors to one (1) appearance at the Sidewalk Shops this season (July 9 thru October 29). Even if you apply for more than one (1) date, we will only accept your application.

Booth Space Details

Before applying, please note that the spaces are outdoors and are approximately 10' wide by 5' deep. We do NOT allow the usage of full 10'x10' booths as we cannot block the street and we cannot block the sidewalk. If you need shade coverage for this event, we recommend using a smaller sized canopy (e.g. 5'x5' or 6'x4') OR we recommend using an outdoor umbrella. 

Instructions on How to Apply to Vend - PLEASE READ

To successfully submit your application, you must go through the online checkout process. Don't worry about the pick-up / delivery method, just choose whatever. Since this is a digital vendor application, whichever option you choose will not matter.

Your Business Info

  • Fill out the fields of the form with your business info. 
  • Select the event date(s) you'd like to apply to. Due to demand, we are limiting vendors to one (1) appearance at the Sidewalk Shops this season (April 2 thru June 25). If we accept your application, we will confirm your event date in your admission notification email. If you prefer certain dates over others, feel free to use the comments section in the application to specify the event dates you'd like to do in order of priority. 
  • If you do NOT have a website / online shop / social media, you will need to email us at with a description of what you will be selling as well as photos of what you will be selling (BONUS if you have a photo of a past booth setup).

However, you will be required to have one prior to the event and will need to email us at your valid seller's permit number at least five (5) business days before the event.
