Dear Vendor,

St Joseph’s Catholic Parish is holding their third annual craft fair this December.  The title of the fair is the Joy of Christmas Craft Fair. The event will be held at St. Monica Hall and the attached classrooms, located at 2811 Poole Road in Raleigh. This is our 3rd Craft Fair and our plans are to continue this as an annual event.  


Time and Date:

The Craft Fair opens to the public on Saturday, December 7th at 9:00 AM and will close at 3PM.  The vendor set up time is from 7AM to 9:00AM and you should NOT tear down before 3PM. There will be no entrance fee for shoppers to attend the fair.


Deadline and space information:

All applications, with payment, are due no later than October 15, 2024. However, the earlier you apply the better the chance of being accepted.

Right now, we have filled all of our spaces in St. Monica Hall, but if you sign-up for a classroom, we will keep a waitlist on a first-come-first-serve basis for St. Monica Hall should, for any reason, a space become available. We will only offer St. Monica Hall spaces to those who are already signed up for a classroom space. The first to sign-up for a classroom, will be the first that we offer a St. Monica Hall space if it becomes available.


There are 24 classroom spaces available. Each classroom contains 3 spaces. The fee is $35.00 for a classroom space.


All spaces are 8 foot wide x 8 foot deep.  Vendors will be limited to a maximum of two (2) spaces to ensure that a larger variety of products are offered.  Power is limited and is available to vendors at no charge until the supply is exhausted. 


A 6 foot table (1) and two (2) chairs can be provided for your use.  Vendors must bring everything else that they need to operate their booth, i.e.: additional table, display items, extension cords (minimum 25 foot, if you require electricity and safety tape to tape the electric extension cord to floor for safety). 


Set up Date and Time:

Set up is on Saturday starting at 7:00 AM and must be completed before the fair opens at 9:00 pm. All vehicles MUST be moved to the vendor parking area  after unloading.  Donuts and coffee, water, etc. will be available at no charge for vendors during the set-up period and throughout the event.  Assistance will be provided to help moving in and moving out. 


Raffle Donation:

We are requesting one item representative of your products (value range of $10-$20) for a door prize raffle table.  Please attach your business card to your donation.  Raffle tickets will be sold for these products.  Winners will be chosen at the end of the day. 


Vendor acceptance:

Vendors must attach a color photograph(s) of their products with the application form.  Vendors may NOT SELL any live animals, nor any drinks or food items that are intended for on-site consumption.  No yard sale items.  The Fair Committee may choose to deny a vendor based on appropriateness of products or duplication of a vendor’s products.  We reserve the right to reject any application. Vendors are responsible for collecting and reporting the sales tax. Upload photos to
