There is no cost for artists to attend. There is a maximum of 6 spaces available for local artists each evening.

Artists must be registered in the NWT Arts Program to not comply with additional regulations.

The dates available are July 8th, 22nd, 29th and August 5th, 12th, 19th.

For the Canada Day celebration, preference will be given to non-profit organizations as there are limited spaces available.

In order to be considered for Canada Day, vendors should apply by close of business on June 25th.
