Scottsdale Jackalope Vendor Information:

ANNOUNCEMENT:

We wanted to keep you all updated on what is going on in the Jackalope community with the start of the new year. It is with heavy hearts that we inform you that we will no longer be producing events in Arizona and will move forward solely focusing on Pasadena and Denver. We’ve enjoyed meeting so many talented artisans in Arizona and appreciate the support from everyone - artisans and shoppers alike- since we began our ventures there. We wish you all the best in the new year!

Sincerely, Jackalope Arts


Jackalope Arts is a strictly handmade, high quality artisan event.  

Application Requirements:

Each fair is juried to maintain a high quality standard.  

Our jury will be selecting artisans who display a high skill set in their respective fields.  Artists of several genres will be selected for show, to keep the content of the fair vibrant and interesting for attendees.  We will be seeking out artists who display the highest quality craftsmanship in original fashion and jewelry design, ceramics and paper goods, innovative home decor and housewares, art and photography, and much more!  

No buy/sell, vintage, or resale items will be permitted.  We are looking to feature original designs and handmade goods.  Although we prefer them to be handmade, manufactured goods are permitted as long as they are your original concept.

For more information on submitting a stellar application, check out our blog

Set up Requirements:

Our Phoenix Fair takes place in the Hanger tent at WestWorld.  Each vendor is provided a blank 10'x10' or 10'x5' space to utilize for setup.
