The Free the Spirit Festival is more than a festival! It’s an opportunity to support and celebrate the diversity within our community at this inclusive outdoor event in support of St.Amant Foundation. Everyone is invited to attend (for FREE)! The Festival, attended by over 600 people, starts with a 2k walk for all to enjoy, and NEW this year, we are offering a 5k run or walk! We will have many other activities going on, such as food, inflatables, games, live music, and petting zoo – activities for everyone to enjoy!

This is our 3rd year of having a market at the festival, and we are looking for approximately 20 vendors to take part.

Promotion: The event will be promoted through St.Amant social media accounts and we would expect vendors to help us extend our reach through their own social media pages. Social media presence will be considered an asset in the selection of our vendors.
