Want to be a vendor?

Canada Day in the Park includes a marketplace for vendors to sell their wares and for organizations to promote their activities. We are still accepting vendors, while spaces remain. If you are interested in participating as a marketplace vendor or a non-profit information booth, please review the rules and regulations for participation and register online.

Please be advised that registration does not guarantee application acceptance. Applications will be adjudicated once all required information is received. The Canada Day in the Park committee reserves the right to accept and reject any application. Unsuccessful applicants will be refunded their fees.
