The local arts and crafts market for a good cause.

Our booths for 2017 are full. If you are interested in being considered in the event of a cancellation, submit an application using the button below and we will be in touch to start the process should a booth space open.

For over 40 years the Boulder Mountain Fire Protection District Auxiliary has sponsored Boulder Mountain Handmade Market to raise funds for our fire district. Funds from the event provide equipment, training, and provisions for our volunteer fire fighters. We hope you'll consider participating –  and share this information with other artisans you know.

Our Market is well-known for its focus on handmade and original items created by visual artists, crafters, photographers, potters, jewelers, and fiber artists, as well as specialty food and beverage makers from across the foothills area. This year's event will be held at the Elks Lodge on 28th Street, one of Boulder's largest in-town event spaces. 

Boulder Mountain Handmade Market features...

  • A variety of booth choices…we have 8' x 8' spaces, 8' x 10' spaces, and 10' x 10' spaces available. Two artists may share any of the booth options. 
  • Ample parking…the Elks Lodge provides easy customer access to our sale and provides plenty of free parking for the event. 
  • Area-wide marketing...we use a marketing professional to bring a diverse group of customers from the region.
  • Promotion of artists before and after the market...our website and Facebook page feature your work and link to your own website.
  • Creative displays…bring your own fixtures for display to be as creative as you like in showcasing your work.
  • Minimal fees...you keep 100% of your revenue during the sale…the booth fee is the only charge and helps raise funds for the firefighters of the Boulder Mountain Fire Protection District. Booths spaces are $200, $240, or $270 for one artist, and $300, $360, or $405 for shared spaces, depending on the size booth selected. There is no application fee. You cashier your own sales.
  • On-site access to artists...you (or your designated agent) are present for the duration of the sale, so customers can interact with the creators of the work exhibited. 
  • Soley handmade items...photography, crafts, and artwork at the Market is all original. We welcome vendors with craft foods and non-alcoholic beverages, like jams, candies, and tea.

We are very grateful to have so many talented artisans in our area and look forward to hearing from you. Your participation allows us to support our fire fighters throughout the year. If you have questions, this link to Frequently Asked Questions will help, or give me a call.
