For reservations greater than one month in advance, your name may be placed on the waiting list at any time; reservations are then made based on priority and space availability.

Holiday Arts & Crafts Faire cancelled for 2021 due to uncertainty concerning dramatic rise of Delta Variant COVID-19 virus. We will hold a Museum Marketplace instead!!

Due to the very real risk of having to cancel the Holiday Faire at the last minute and the extreme amount of planning, permitting, advertising, booth supplies, and staff organizing, the Board of Trustees has decided to instead hold a Holiday-themed Museum Marketplace flea market instead (if still allowed by the health dept. by then). We very much regret having to do this two years in a row, but the risk posed by the extremely virulent Delta COVID-19 strain to infect and be spread by even the vaccinated has forced us to make this difficult decision.  Thank you for your understanding!

 

Additional Information

  • Pre-payment is required to ensure space reservation for all events! Cash, check, or money order accepted; sorry, no debit or credit card payment can be accepted at this time.  Check is payable to Carpinteria Valley Historical Society, or C.V.H.S.  Mail payment to: Carpinteria Valley Museum, 956 Maple Ave. Carpinteria, CA, 93013.

 

  • Cancellation of space after one week prior to the event forfeits payment unless space is filled.   A $10 administrative fee will be charged for all Museum Marketplace cancellations.  A minimum $25 fee is charged for Holiday Faire cancellation; any cancellations within two weeks of the show are non-refundable.  We are sorry, but there are no refunds for event cancellation due to rain.

 

  • Vendors are expected to arrive within the set-up period and stay for the entire duration of each event.  You must leave your space free of litter after each show.   You also are required to take all empty boxes, wrapping paper, etc., with you as our dumpster cannot begin to accommodate the trash generated by 60 to 100 vendors.  Thank you!
