Vend-able Events

In the beginning of 2023 I set out to do as many new events as humanly possible. I made this list for myself and while it is definitely not a complete list, these are a great jumping off point for where to start your search for vend-able events. If you have any to add to the list, please comment with them!

The "when" is based on 2023 dates - you will want to double check the 2024 dates as they may have changed.

Craft Show: Vibe Artisan Markets. Tons of dates.
Locations: Austin, Houston, Dallas, Denver, and next year they are expanding to Seattle.

If you’re going to do one of theirs, do Post in Houston. Insane turn out, nearly every vendor sold out last summer.

+ Vibe is a small women owned business & the owner is amazing. Her support & advise has had a major impact on my business.
