If you did not purchase a parking pass: Please load-in to the spots to the left. Jules will be the parking lot load-in goddess before the event so she will be directing you. After your load-in, exit the lot and find street parking. Beware of 2 hour parking spots!

We encourage you to bring carts for load-in, but there may be some extras available for use.

Parking

There are some parking passes available for purchase here: ( I think there are 2 left!)

Please print out the order confirmation for the parking permit and display it on your dashboard for the event. If you do not buy a parking pass there is street parking around the lake. Be aware of “2 hour parking” signs. Please do not park in the parking lot if you do not have a parking pass.

If you ordered a single booth you have a 6x4” space. 6 feet faces outwards to the attendee traffic. We do not supply tables or chairs or anything. There are no dividers. There is no guarantee for electricity, if you need any electricity please send an email to girlgangcraft@gmail.com. If you are next to a wall you can use blue painter’s tape to hang things.

Raffle

At the GGC Market events we always host raffles and raffle off maker’s items at the front entrance. The money that is collected goes towards our scholarship program that allows us to give scholarships so artists can vend + participate in events like our Branding workshop and our upcoming #smallbiz summit. If you would like to donate, just plan on bringing an item to the front of the event the day of. Your item will be front and center with your business info so it is a great way to intro your items to attendees so that they can come and find your booth!

THANK YOU! And we are so excited for June 22!!!
