This is 2023's event map, James will make a new one closer to the event. A new map will be created as we get closer for the area.
We are excited to collectively hold this space for our community! Here you will find many different local creators, farms, musicians & creator spaces. ICT Big Gay Market is a Farmers Market, non-alcoholic & safe space for all of our community!
Right here's some food for the soul, as a herbalist we know that the first step to any emotional journey is accepting yourself. After that we can make decisions through the heart with our life. We offer this space to be a safe space to express yourself, and share the love of acceptance of a community together.
There used to be a lot of events in our Riverside neighborhood that supported our LGBTQIA+ community, and it's time we brought back all of what that can be now!
Just walking down the sidewalk taking it all in was a lot, even for it only being part of the block. Laughter, holding hands, kissing, sharing true joy expressed through dance and not a negative vibe in the house! It's called The Big Gay Market
and it was not a small endeavor, it is thanks to everyone involved that this event was such a success. Thank you to everyone that made it possible, we couldn't have asked for more!
We are blessed to have our Riverside allies/community, and they all came out in support for a safe and joyous event!
The Big Gay Market is also a platform for gay owned business to show their creative side while also growing from event to event. Being someone who has created a business from the ground up here in Wichita we would like to create a off shoot of this event to help new business get a head start on their momentum. Making the decision to dedicate to a business is a big
step. Maybe your passion is ready
to bloom into something amazing!
We've created a great support system
that our own market goers can help in
their own way! Go to the Emerald City
Sisters button booth and get our first
Market Button!! The cost is $4.00 and all the proceeds go to the Sisters and all the good they do! These buttons will give you access to different sales from participating market vendors! Also keep
in touch with these vendors the whole
year to watch their growth.
The fairies will be back this year!! Bring the kids and enjoy shopping while they search the different vendors to find the Herb Fairies! This is a fun way for parents to enjoy their shoppings experience while creating memories.
Once you have collected all 13 of your fairy stamps come back to the Apothecary and get your sacred scroll of fairy magic (recipes to make that are simple and fun for everyone), fill your satchel with magic herbs and also a sacred crystal before you leave!
