Saturday, April 9, 2022, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., at White Park, No cost
We’re back! After a two-year interlude we are ready to relaunch the Riverside Art Market in its new location, White Park, located in downtown Riverside. This new space will highlight our artist vendors, entertainers, and children’s activities in a beautiful park setting.
We are very grateful to the artist-vendors who patiently stuck it out with us so they could participate in this April’s Art Market. With 100 booths located along the pathways of White Park, we still have booths available so we encourage anyone who is interested to submit a vendor application!
With FREE admission, children’s crafts, and art demonstrations, plus a safe, outdoor setting, we hope you’ll join us for this community-oriented event that raises funds for the mission-driven work of the art museum, and supports the local artists and artisans who will be selling their unique work at this event.
Call for Vendors
You must sign and return a waiver. You may submit the waiver by attaching it in the online application when you select your booth (which makes it automatic) or by mailing it to the Riverside Art Museum or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Mailed or emailed waivers must be received within 5 business days or the booth you have selected will be released. If you share a booth with another artist or artists, submit only one application; however, they will also need to sign and return a waiver.
Booth fees are $130 for members (early-bird price) and $145 for non-members (early-bird price). Early-bird pricing ends January 15, 2022. Prices will then go up to $140 for members and $155 for non-members. Applications are accepted through April 1.
There is no additional charge for selecting your specific booth or for sharing a booth.
We will provide white E-Z UP canopies to all outside vendors (no personal E-Z UPs are allowed). E-Z UPs will be set up for all vendors by 7:30 a.m. on April 1.
Become a Sponsor!
We are asking for your support of our annual Riverside Art Market, which is organized by the Art Alliance of the Riverside Art Museum.
This event is free and open to all. Publicity at the event and on social media will clearly show your community support!
The Art Market is a fun-raiser as well as a fund-raiser! In the past, visitors:
- shopped from over 85 local artists;
- enjoyed music, art demonstrations, food trucks, and wine/beer offerings; and
- created art of their own—children had their own kid-friendly crafts and activities.
With free admission and free children’s crafts and art demonstrations, the Riverside Art Museum and Art Alliance need your sponsorship to raise funds.
