FAQ

Do you have to be queer to be a vendor or busker in our street fair?
No. While preferential selection may be given to queer vendors or buskers, we also love our queer allies and they will be vendors/buskers as well!

What is a busker?
A street performance or busking is the act of performing in public places for gratuities. Performances are anything that people find entertaining. Performers may do acrobatics, balloon twisting, caricatures, clowning, comedy, contortions, escapology, dance, singing, fire skills, juggling, magic, mime, living statue, musical performance, puppeteering, storytelling or reciting poetry or prose, street theatre, sword swallowing, ventriloquism, etc.

How much does it cost to be vendor?
To apply is FREE, if chosen you will be contacted with a request to pay the following fee within 7 days to reserve your booth.  If you do not pay within 7 days your vendor slot may be given to somebody on our waiting list.

Price per 10'x10' vendor space.

  • Non-Profit
  • For-Profit (Artists/Crafters/Makers)
  • Food Trucks

How much does it cost to be a busker?
Nothing! Buskers are assigned a performance space and specific performance time. There is no stage. Buskers are responsible for providing their own instruments, equipment, etc.

*We will only be selecting 1-2 regular food trucks and 1 desert food truck.
**No alcohol is allowed to be sold unless pre-approved by both Kaleidoscope AND Flyway Brewing Co.
***More than one vendor booth maybe be reserved.

All proceeds benefit the Kaleidoscope, a queer arts 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
