Introducing the Vendors' Village Marketplace

For the first time, Festival will host a locally-sourced vendor market at Del Crary Park featuring handcrafted goods and delicious food options. Thanks to Modern Makers Market for partnering with Peterborough's Dragon Boat Festival to offer this unique opportunity in 2018.

Are you a local Artisan or food vendor? Visit www.modernmakersmarket.com to apply before March 9th. Spaces are limited so don't delay! 100% of the vendors' participation fees will go towards the Festival and breast cancer care in our community.
