BEAR MARKET VENDOR APPLICATION/REGISTRATION 2024
BEAR MARKET will be at 2 different locations this year, first - SUNDAY & MONDAY JULY 14th & 15th 10am-4pm at The Ptown Inn & then again on THURSDAY JULY 18th 2024 at The Crown and Anchor, in Provincetown, MA on Commercial Street.
As we have in the past we are not charging vendors to be part of the market we just ask for a donation at the end of the day that we will pool together and give to local charities or local non profits. Most vendors in the past give around 5% of what they made that day. We've raised over $27,000 for SKIP and other local charities since we began in 2010. Both venues do not charge us for the space since we are also a fundraising effort.
You can choose to do one of or both of the events - The First one will be a 2 day vendor fair at the Ptown Inn, in their Harborview Room, and we would leave everything set up overnight in the room. Tables and chairs would be provided by the venue, we are still trying to sort out some parking options onsite or closse by. The Ptown Bears are working on getting Bear Market Shuttle Trolly for us on both days to facilitate getting people from the center of town down to the Ptown Inn and back on Both days. The Second market event will be on Thursday July 18th at the Crown and Anchor down in the center of town where we have had it in the past. Tables will be provided by the venue, there is no parking on site.
For more information on the Ptown Bears or More info about Provincetown please check out the Ptown Bears website
Load in and set up will begin at 7am for Both Venues, for vendors to arrive and begin loading in and setting up. Tables and chairs should already be in place. we are trying to find parking options for the Ptown Inn but plan to find parking on your own at the Crown since they do not have any parking. The staff at the venue will be setting up the tents & tables in the courtyard & club and removing all the speakers and gogo boxes in the Paramount, so please wait for them to finish before starting set up.
I will announce via email & online when Registration is closed and when we are full. We will have a Wait List for any vendors that didn't make registration in time, if we have any cancellations (whch does happen)
