This is a curated event. Applying to the festival and paying the fee does not guarantee a booth. In that case your fee will be refunded. It is best to inquire in advance if you have any concerns.
PLEASE NOTE: The festival is always changing. This year we are focusing more on Arts and Culture, with an emphasis on local artists and artisans. The name has been changed to the the BIG on Bloor: Bloordale's Festival of Art & Culture. We are reducing the number of available spaces this year.
The hours of the festival has changed reflecting the two day road closure from Noon until Midnight. Vendors are NOT required to stay the entire duration. There will be a scheduled periods between 7pm to 9pm and after Midnight to 1am which vendors will be assisted to leave the festival in an order manner with volunteer help, valets, carts and other means to diligently end your day.
We are working towards making the festival a Zero Waste event. This means that anything you bring to the festival should go either into the green or blue bin. The BIG festival reserves the right to refuse any vendor if they do not fit our criteria.
Please check the Info for Vendors page for more detailed information, if you have not done already.
