Let it Snow - Winter Craft Fair - Let it Show!

Where and when is the next event held?

This year's pre-Christmas event is happening December 16-18, 2016, at the Artscape Youngplace building (180 Shaw St, Toronto, ON M6J 2W5).  It is conveniently located on Shaw street, East of Ossington Avenue. There is FREE street parking.

I want to be part of this event as a vendor, how do I apply?

We are accepting applications until October 29, 2016. To apply, please email your completed application with payment to vendors@letitshow.ca before the deadline. Should your application not be accepted, your full payment will be refunded no later than November 1, 2016. We will be notifying accepted participants via email no later than November 5th, 2016.

How are exhibitors selected?

Applications are juried by the organizers of the event. We place a strong emphasis on creativity, uniqueness, broad appeal, and items made in Canada. There is a limited number of exhibitors that can be accepted within specific categories to avoid over saturation, and to allow for a wider range of offerings.

What is included in my cost to exhibit?

Exhibitors accepted in the event will receive:
one (1) table
one (1) chair
social media promotion
video interview

The cost helps us to cover the expenses of renting and decorating the room, as well as printing promotional materials. Our time in designing the website, promotional materials, recruiting, interviews, and other social promotion includes over 100 in volunteer hours. This year we are also offering free hot apple cider to patrons, in addition to offering $250 in gift certificates to be won and applied towards purchases at the event, which means, as an exhibitor, you have the potential to win up to $250 in additional sales.

Is there parking?

Street parking is available from 10:00 am to midnight. There is also easy access by TTC, the Ossington stop on the Queen Street West streetcar is two minutes away on foot.

Is anything required of the vendor to exhibit?

Signage indicating your company name and a table covering are mandatory for all exhibits. Further details will be provided upon acceptance into the show.

Can I share a booth with a friend?

We do welcome vendors sharing a space with a friend. Two artisans, artists, or crafters, will be permitted to share a 4' by 6' space, enabling them to split the booth fees and costs involved, as long as both apply individually, following our application guideline, as two separate vendors, but with only one (1) payment, as well as one (1) additional $20 fee for a shared space. The extra fee is to cover the extra cost of promotional materials for the additional vendor, as well as one (1) extra chair at the booth. You must mention within the application whom you wish to share the space with. Both applications need to be approved independently to be permitted into the event together.

Can I attend just one day of the event as a vendor?

We understand that sometimes schedules conflict, and it is difficult to put aside three (3) full days to attend an event. We encourage all interested vendors to apply, and state availability in their email, along with their application. We will consider all applications equally, and permit daily vendors only in cases where there are sufficient applications to cover all three (3) days of the event. All tables must be occupied for all three (3) days of the event.

What is the daily rate for a space at the event?

Friday, December 16th - $55 - 3 pm to 9:00 pm
Saturday, December 17th - $90 - 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
Sunday, December 18th - $55 - 12:00 am to 6:00 pm

Who attends the show?

The event is promoted through social media, media websites, as well as within the local community. We currently have an email list of approx. 500 people. We attract people with a special interest in supporting their community, locally made products, and local artists.

This year, we are putting an emphasis on promoting each individual vendor with an attempt to draw attention to the creative process, tools, and materials, rather than only on the finished product.

What is Let it Show?

Let it Show is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing community awareness of local artisans, hobbyists, and artists. Every dollar invested, as well as our 100s of volunteer hours, are used to promote the event, increase traffic and awareness, and create a festive atmosphere for vendors and patrons alike.

We have a vested interest in this event being artisans ourselves. We understand the value of your time, the value of your craft and the value of your efforts. Our goal is to make every event a success for the community, the artists and our patrons.
