For those that are new to Costume College, the Marketplace is where patterns, trim, accessories, jewelry, books and such are available for sale. The Marketplace will also host its popular Early Bird Shopping Event on Friday afternoon: for a $7.00 donation benefiting the Costume College Scholarship Fund, eager shoppers can get a head start in The Marketplace, with admittance between the hours of 3:30 and 6 pm. You can purchase your Early Bird tickets at the Costume College Information Desk commencing Friday morning for your entrance into The Marketplace at 3:30 pm. We appreciate your contribution to the Costume College Scholarship Fund with your Early Bird ticket purchase.
Tentative hours for the Costumer’s Marketplace 2019 will be (subject to change):
- Friday, July 26: 3:30 pm to 6:00 pm (Early Bird Shoppers’ Charity Event. Admission is by ticket only, to benefit the Costume College Scholarship Fund.)
- Friday, July 26: 7:45 pm to 10:00 pm (Grand Opening to All)
- Saturday, July 27: 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
- Sunday, July 28: 8:30 am to 5:00 pm
The Costumer’s Marketplace is open to everyone! If you have friends who are not attending Costume College, invite them to the Marketplace – it can be a great “first taste” that gives people a sense of what the College has to offer. Please also note that no pets or other animals will be allowed in the Marketplace at any time – the only exceptions will be licensed disabled-assistance animals.
Important message for potential 2019 Vendors: The selection of dealers participating in the Costume College 2019 Marketplace will be juried by the Costume College Board. This decision has been made in response to the request of attendees, in an effort to better meet the needs of the Costume College participants and to provide a greater variety of merchandise. Past participation does NOT guarantee inclusion into 2019’s Marketplace. If you wish to be considered for inclusion in the Marketplace, it is imperative that all of your application be completed and received no later than February 2019.
