Market Vendors

Fill out the application below and we’ll be in touch

Thank you for your interest in GLOW Nashville. We’re devoted to maintaining a creatively-driven vendor marketplace highlighting local artists and craft vendors. Therefore, we limit the number of promotional spaces at the event.

Local businesses or non-profits who intend to use space for promotional purposes can still be a part of GLOW through sponsorship of the event.  Please contact us for more information on sponsorship.

Please note that this application is not intended for food vendors, as all concessions at GLOW Nashville are being managed by First Tennessee Park.

DETAILS

Applications will be reviewed starting at the end of August 2019. You will receive further information if you have been accepted.

Once you receive email notification for being accepted, you must pay your vendor fee. Failure to respond by the deadline may result in revocation of the invitation and immediate invitation of an applicant from the waiting list.

Artists retain all revenue from the sale of their work with no commission on sales due to GLOW.
