All vendors must be approved by Scream Queen Productions. No MLM. As this festival has a macabre/creepy theme, all goods sold should be theme appropriate. (Michigan themed goods are okay, too!)
If your application is accepted, you will be contacted with your fee total and payment instructions.
**OUR 2023 MACABRE MARKETPLACE IS NOW FULL!**
Any applications received will be added to our waiting list. If additional space opens up, we will be in contact.

Our 2023 festival is a two day event for the first time ever! We understand that two day festivals are not doable for everyone, so we are still offering a one day option. However, please understand that two day applications will be processed first. We are also expanding our Macabre Marketplace into the Beach Market just down the block, so not all vendors will be located on the courthouse lawn in 2023.
Set-up begins at 8am (early arrivals will have to wait until 8am to check in!), and your booth must be ready before the start of the festival at 11am. Where space allows, you may pull your vehicle onto the lawn to quickly unload, but then must park elsewhere.
You may make arrangements to bring your canopies, tables, and any other large items on Friday to get a head start on set-up. We will not have security Friday night, only Saturday night. So it is not recommended that small items be set out on Friday.
Tear-down begins when the festival ends. Mid-day tear down of booths will not be permitted. You are expected to attend the festival in its entirety.
Booth fees are non-refundable. The festival will be held rain or shine. If your plans change and you are unable to attend the festival, please let us know right away. *If we have to cancel the 2023 festival for any reason, all fees will be refunded.
All food vendors must submit an “intent to serve” application to the Barry Eaton Health Department at least one week prior to the festival. (If you are exempt from completing this document, please indicate this when submitting your application.) The form can be found at www.barryeatonhealth.org. If you have any questions or need help with this, please let us know.
Neither Scream Queen Productions nor the Courthouse Square Association can be held accountable for any lost, stolen, or damaged items or equipment. There will be overnight security on-site Saturday night into Sunday morning, but we still cannot be held responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged items or equipment.
Processing of 2023 applications will begin on or after January 1, 2023. Your application will be reviewed in the order received. Once it has been accepted, you will be given payment instructions. Your space is not guaranteed and your business will not be advertised until payment has been received.
