A vendor’s application form can be found on the homepage of the Township of Nipissing’s website. Also note, the event is outdoors, so the savvy vendor might want to bring tent. Bring a table while you’re at it, as nothing is supplied. There is no fee for vendors to set up.

Submit those applications before September 6. Submit via email to
