MSD Booth/Vendor Information
UPDATE 5/27: We are no longer accepting Applications for Booth Spaces
Informational packets have been mailed out to all Festival participants (6/1).
These packets will contain your Event Permit, map and other helpful information
PLEASE NOTE: Only approved Vendors are permitted to sell/sample products and distribute information (in their Booth area) on Market Square Day.
Those individuals 'soliciting' information and products (handing out flyers, policital campaigns, etc.) are respectfully asked to refrain from doing so out of respect for those who have complied with the application process.
ANOTHER REMINDER: All sidewalks in the Festival footprint must remain open/clear for pedestrian access. This relates to all MSD Vendors and Downtown Stores - racks, tents, tables cannot be on the sidewalk.
Each year we invite Artists, Craftspeople, fellow Non-Profits, Downtown and Local Merchants, as well as a selection of Vendors to apply for inclusion at Market Square Day.
The festival affords all the opportunity to stroll the streets of Portsmouth in search of great crafts, products and tasty offerings by local restaurants, non-profits and food vendors.
The Festival begins at 9:00am in Downtown Portsmouth. Three entertainment stages feature an eclectic mix of music and dance. Over 100 booths line the streets until 4:00pm. Don't miss the 10K Road Race which starts off at Market Square.
We welcome you to enjoy an evening in Portsmouth - filled with great local restaurants, pubs and live music.
