In the Soil Arts Festival, now in its 10th year (!!!WOW!!!), showcases and celebrates the unique artistic talents of Niagara and beyond. The 3-day event will feature more than 400 contemporary performing and literary artists, musicians, and media artists in the St Catharines downtown core.

This year, we’ve once again teamed up with Craft Arts Market to present Vendor Bender, an arts market taking place at the hub of the event on James Street from Friday 27 April to Sunday 29 April 2018. The Vendor Bender offers an opportunity for independent Niagara artists and craftspeople to share their work. If you are making works such as artisanry; self-published magazine and book works; textile arts; screen prints; independent music recordings, and any other unique creations, we want you to present and sell your work at this dynamic, popular and exciting market.

The Vendor Bender will be part of our outdoor Festival Hub in a fully tented location on James Street and part of an entire street of activity, including the festival Main stage tent with food and drink and live entertainment throughout the three-day festival.
