Big Gay Market

This is a event with focus on our LGBTQIA+ community, it is a safe, caring and fun environment we all co-create. Vendor setup will start at 7:00 am, and teardown will start at 3:00 pm if you would like. We will be offering the space available till around 5:00 pm.  Our goal is to share space with our local community either allied or LGBTQIA+ to showcase what we can do to create a experiential, informative and amazing shopping trip. There will be lots of rainbows so please bring what you have on hand. After this event we will be attempting to start a business support group to help get new business's off the ground for events. Please fill out the form to the best of your ability, anything you don't have right now just put N/A and we will discuss options to help your business grow!

  • Food vendors are highly encouraged to offer a tasting or product sample to attendees

  • Sales tax must be collected by vendor businesses as required by state law

  • Vendors will receive specific load-in/tear-down instructions via email by Leaf & Stone Apothecary. We understand things happen, it is imperative to follow these instructions as closely as possible to have a smooth and stress-free setup/tear-down

  • Vendors are not permitted to tear down their booth or display before the Fest is over for the day. Not only is this a disturbance to attendees, it is also unsafe. No exceptions. Even if you sell out please keep your information up to be seen

  • Vendors are required to park their vehicles away from the event area at least 2 blocks away. It is a small neighborhood PLEASE do not block anyones driveway on the street or in the alleyway 

  • As a condition of being a vendor, the vendor agrees to release and hold The ICT Big Gay Market and Leaf & Stone Apothecary and their members, agents and employees harmless from all claims related to or arising from the vendor’s attendance at The Big Gay Market

We will be offering this event rain or shine and spaces purchased are non-refundable. Payment for Big Gay Market will be sent out after we have reviewed your application. This is a supportive and co-created safe space for everyone involved. Please share your kindness, joy and creativity with all who come to the event. We have held this space for both vendors and those from our community expecting a fun experience. Please help us create this experience, anything expressed by our vendors deterring us from our expected experience can result in being asked to leave or at least break down. Parking is limited so after unloading please park at least 2 blocks away. More information will be provided after acceptance into the event.


Please show up 1 hour before opening for setup, and expect at least 1 hour after for tear down. Bring enough food & water for the day, food and water will be available at the food court. Make sure your payments tax is set to 7.5% (also I think there is a grocery tax to be aware of which is 2%) and to fill the form out to the best of your ability, if there is anything that we need that is not there we will ask. Please provide us with your business's insurance paperwork via email at

No refunds will be issued should the applicant/vendor choose to cancel their involvement. The ICT Big Gay Market is a rain or shine event. The application due date is a month before the event you would like to attend and be part of the advertisements and social media.
