Our guest Vendors: Worthwhile Paper! DUCF poster artist alum Kristen Drozdowski will have a one night only pop up with us selling her 2021 line of cards and printed goodies.

Covid-19 comments: Every vendor, guest, staff-person must show their Vaccination card (paper or photo) for entry into our show or a negative covid test within 72 hours.

The BAR will be open! We ask you be conscientious about others’ personal space, considering a face mask, if you have a snack or sample enjoy it up in our theater seats, and interacting with our vendors. We’re all thrilled to be back but everyone’s comfort level is unique and we’ll all work together to have a nice time. We have house security the entire weekend as well.
