Call for local and artisan vendors

July 6, 2016

The St.Amant Foundation is holding its annual Free the Spirit Festival, at 440 River Road on Saturday, September 24 from 10am until 2pm, our signature fundraising event of the year.
The Free the Spirit Festival’s main goals are to increase community awareness for St.Amant, and to raise funds to enhance the well-being and lives of children and adults living with developmental disabilities and autism. Last year, the Festival raised over $190,000!
The proceeds raised during the Festival will be used to create opportunities for inclusion and friendship for the people we support. Our goal is to help each individual experience choice, inclusion and quality of life through leisure activities such as education and technology, St.Amant Leisure Guide, recreation programs, personal items and equipment.
We’re looking for vendors to participate in our on-site market during the Festival. Our market is a true artisans market – we are looking for vendors of hand-made or locally made products to offer to over 700 guests. This year’s artisan’s market will be located near the garden entrance and to ensure a great experience for both our vendors and our guests, we will be selecting a limited number of vendors to participate in this year’s market. We want our vendors to have a busy, successful and rewarding day with us so we want to avoid duplication of products and services.
There is no fee to have a table in our Artisan’s market. However, we do ask that you donate 10% of your day’s earnings to the St.Amant Foundation.
If you are interested in participating in the St.Amant Free the Spirit Festival, please email us the following information:

  •  Company name
  •  Product range sold
  •  Price range
  •  Website or social media addresses

Inquiries should be directed to Christie Lafreniere at clafreniere@stamant.ca or by calling 204-256-4301, extension 2002.
Thank you in advance for your interest and support.
