You can also be a vendor at Arts Alive.  Lax Splash and Beach Splash also have vendors.  You have to apply directly through those events to be a vendor.

How you become a vendor depends on what event you want to be a vendor for. In each case you need to contact the event sponsor for specific instructions.

Many events in town are sponsored by OC's Special Events Department.  If you want to be considered for Springfest or Sunfest, you work with them. For Springfest 2108 you can access the Springfest 2018 Vendor Applications here. They are due by 1 March 2018. For Sunfest 2018 you can access the Sunfest 2018 Vendor Applications here. It is due by 1 June 2018. The applications have lots of useful information. There is a $25 non-refundable  application/jury fee and not all applicants receive spots as these are juried shows where vendors are selected based on their specific wares. Booths spots cost $635 or more. The application forms provide detailed directions and much more information. You can contact the Special Events group via their webpage or call them at 410.250.0125 to find out more.

Many of the car shows and other events are run by Special Event Pro. Contact them through their webpage or by phone at 410.798.6304 to find out how to be a vendor at these events.

Ocean Promotions sponsors several Craft Shows.

Spring and Fall Bike Week / Bikefest also have vendors.
