Market Fair on the Square

The Gaslight Art Colony would like to invite you to participate as a vendor at our “Market Fair on the Square” on June 24th & 25th 2016. The Gaslight Art Colony is looking for arts, crafts, antiques, handmade items and much much more. The vendor portion will run June 24 from 4pm-8pm and Saturday June 25 from 9am-4pm. The Gaslight Art Colony is expecting a great number of vendors showcasing a wide variety of items for sale to the large crowds expected to visit our community during the festival. This festival is in conjunction with the Marshall Walldogs weekend that features the painting of 16 building murals in just 4 days.
