Introducing the Vendors' Village Marketplace.
The Peterborough Dragon Boat festival has partnered with Modern Makers Market to bring you a unique shopping and food experience at Del Crary Park on June 9th...

“The Modern Makers Market Team has big plans this year for vendor events and we are excited that the Dragon Boat Festival has asked us to organize a vendor village for the highly anticipated annual event next week! There will be a unique shopping and food experience for patrons, race participants and sponsors, a little something for everyone. We are honoured to be a part of such an amazing event that helps fundraise for equipment at our local PRHC. Can't wait to see it all happen down at the lake!”
