NOW ACCEPTING VENDOR APPLICATIONS!
ETP is seeking food, arts, and merchandise vendors for the 2021 Westside Shakespeare Festival! This exciting festival attracted nearly 600 people per day in 2019, and we are growing our vendor list for 2021.
We are ONLY seeking vendors whose merchandise/art could be found in 1600. We can be flexible as to what exactly that is, but if you sell items that are unique to the 21st century like cell phones, t-shirts, etc., you would not be eligible for our festival.
SEEKING THESPIANS AND THEATERS!
Are you the leader of a theater troupe who would like to perform at the Westside Shakespeare Festival? Then we would love to hear from you! We are seeking individual performers and theater groups to perform scenes, poems, or other Bard-related performances to perform on one of our three stages offered during the festival.
We are also seeking actors to perform madrigals during our Queen's Feast on July 17.
Interested parties should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
DEADLINE FOR VENDORS: April 18
