The goal is to create a period experience for visitors, celebrating the sights, sounds, smells and atmosphere of a pioneer Christmas marketplace.

Artisans of handmade goods are encouraged to apply.  The committee is looking for artists and crafters whose pieces fit the ‘Christmas shopping’ theme.  Food vendors and food trucks are also welcome to apply (outside spots only).  Artists and food vendors can visit the Homestead Christmas Market website to apply online. Spaces will be both inside and outside of the museum.  The outside spots will be under the porch roof, but if selecting an outside spot when applying, please note that there are no contingencies to move indoors if the weather is uncooperative.
