Night Market Schedule
March 21: Night Market
Are there any fees to participate?
Entry is free to the public; Maker participation is $40. Social House members receive a significant discount.
What are the entry fees used for?We host these events to build up the local creative community, which ultimately grows our potential member base, and as a benefit for our members. We don't profit on the vendor fees, but instead use them to cover half of our budget for marketing and social media expenses. We cover the rest of the marketing costs, and open up our Sidebar for beer and wine sales on the day of the event to try to recoup the rest of our expenses. So - that glass of wine goes to a good cause!
How do you choose the Makers?We carefully curate the lineup of Makers for each event, with the goal of a cohesive, varied set of Makers that we feel best reflect the aesthetic and interests of our community. Factors we consider: Style of the Maker and their products/services; price-point of goods or services being offered; similarities or differences to already accepted Makers; frequency the Maker has participated in our events; and, of course, Social House membership and/or relationship to our community. We often receive interest from several vendors with a similar style - when that happens, we'll suggest an alternate date so that everyone can participate without creating too much similarity in one event.
Community Manager Jess (firstname.lastname@example.org) coordinates our Meets and handles communications - please send her an email if you're interested in participating as a Maker, or would like to be a sponsor for an upcoming meet.
