Attendees

I am interested in attending the Street Fair. What activities do you have planned for both adults and children?
The Street Fair has many activities for the whole family! There is a variety of live music and entertainers performing your favorite oldies hits, plenty of delicious food, and a wide array of craft vendors. (This is the perfect opportunity to shop and get to know some of Massapequa’s wonderful merchants.) For the kids, we will have pony rides, a petting zoo, face-painting, and much more! It is a wonderful event for all age groups, and we hope to see you there.

How is the event set up?
As the vendors are located in the streets, lower Broadway is closed to vehicular traffic for the duration of the event.

Where do I park?
Ample parking is available in the Town Parking Lot South of the Massapequa Train Station and the Town Parking Lot North of the Massapequa Train Station. No permit is required for that day.

General (Craft/Business) Vendors

What exactly is a General (Craft/Business) Vendor?
Any craft or business vendor that is not food-related would fall into this category.

I would like to participate as a General (Craft/Business) Vendor! What do I need to do?
Simply CLICK HERE to download and print your application. You can mail the completed application along with your payment to 675 Broadway, Massapequa NY 11758. (Checks will be accepted until July 31st.) If you would like to pay by credit card, you can CLICK HERE to download a credit card authorization to mail in with your application. (Credit cards will be accepted until August 7th.) We hope to see you there!

How much does it cost to be a General (Craft/Business) Vendor?
The cost is $200 for one space, and $125 for each additional adjacent space.

What is the size of the space that I will receive?
Your space will be 15x10. (This is 15 feet WIDE and 10 feet DEEP.) Many of our vendors feel that this is more than ample room to display their products. However, you are welcome to purchase up to three spaces.

I would like to request a specific space location. How can I do this?
Our planning committee works very hard to honor all space requests. However, space requests cannot be guaranteed. Spaces are also distributed on a first come first serve basis, so please be sure to register early!

When should I submit my registration?
As soon as possible! Last year, this was a SOLD OUT event with 150+ vendors. Spaces are distributed on a first come first serve basis. Registration officially closes on August 7th.

I missed the August 7th deadline. Now what do I do?
After August 7th, your next opportunity to register will be on the day of the festival. Please approach the Chamber booth at 8:00 AM for assistance. If there are any additional spaces available, we will try to distribute those as best we can. Please note that spaces are not guaranteed on the day of the event and will be distributed on a first come first serve basis. There will be an additional processing fee, and CASH ONLY will be accepted.

Can I sell/distribute food or beverages of any kind?
Out of respect for our Food Vendors, we insist that General/Craft Vendors refrain from distributing food or drinks of any kind – including bottled water. We thank you in advance for your cooperation!
