Open Air Christmas Market Vendor Application Form
This form serves as registration & application to participate in our Open Air Christmas Market on Saturday December 7th as part of Bedford Indiana's - Christmas Around the Square. We are primarily looking for Christmas Craft Vendors / Gift options. Informational booths are not our objective for this market and will not be permitted to set up on site. Vendors will be reviewed and approved by our event coordinators to deem what is the best fit for our event.
The Open Air Christmas Market will be published & promoted as open from 3pm to 7pm on the J Street section of the Downtown Square (between 15th & 16th Streets). HOWEVER, we will allow for early operation. Vendors need to be fully set up & staffed by 2:45pm.
Many of our Downtown Merchants will be open for business earlier than 3pm around the square. We ALSO have LIVE REINDEER on exhibit from 12pm to 3pm at the Downtown Depot. Santa Clause & Barrel Train Rides are at the Downtown Depot from 3pm to 5pm. The Bedford Christmas Parade starts at 6pm.
Vendors are NOT PERMITTED to park inside the Market area. Some exceptions may apply to food trucks / food vendors.
Public parking is available inside the courthouse square and within a block on all streets outside of the square.
