Children’s Marketplace

Starting at 10AM

Are you an inventor, producer, designer, crafter, baker or builder? Show us what you can do and sell your wares. Call ahead to reserve your space under the market tent. Sell the morning away and still have lots of time to enjoy the great activities all along the street.

Our Festival would not be the same without our Children’s Marketplace. We encourage everyone to support our young entrepreneurs. They have worked hard!

Don’t forget to check out the famous Creemore Farmer’s Market as well!
