Vendor Information

Monterey Custom House Plaza is a GREAT location for festivals. It is a main pedestrian area in Monterey and tourists flock to this area every weekend. And the plaza is nearby to some of the biggest hotels in Monterey. As a vendor for over 25 years I have NEVER had a bad festival selling here! The Plaza is steps away from the world-famous Monterey Fisherman’s Wharf and will feature unique artisans and live music to keep the tourists and locals entertained. Add a couple of food trucks and it’s a great weekend for all attendees and vendors. There will be extensive advertising throughout the Monterey Bay area. Booth Space is $300 for a 10 x 10. Larger booth spaces available.
