The Armory was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978 and has been out of official use since this time. The current owners plan to revive this historic building in consideration of gentrification, and social and environmental concerns while restoring and renovating The Armory to its original splendor, style and beauty.
Performance & Entertainment
While this event is focused on the display and sale of artisan crafts, we are pleased to present these elements in a rich, creative environment, integrated with and amongst the performing arts. Taking place in the 40,000 sq. ft. drill court of The Amory, the Mission Bazaar will feature several performance areas, including a main stage, a central performance area, and a DJ stage to provide a lively, eclectic soundtrack to the day’s events. Entertainment will be amplified, but within considerations of conversation, commerce, and family-friendly volume.
Mission Bazaar provides two kinds of artisan exhibitor spaces as described below. Please choose one in your application:
8’x10’ Booth Spaces
The majority of artisan vendor spaces are basic 8’ x 10’ booths with white fabric sides and back wall. The booth will not be covered or carpeted. A generic sign with your company name, a 6’ rectangular table and 2 plastic chairs are included. Electricity is not included. However, we can offer a limited number of exhibitors electricity for an additional $50 fee on a first-come, first-served basis. Generators are not allowed.
6’ Table Spaces
We are offering a limited number of table display spaces that include a 6’ rectangular banquet table and two chairs. Table spaces will be allocated first to a small number of local non- profit organizations, followed by select artisan vendors whose presentation needs are appropriate for small table display (e.g. Jewelry).
What You Might Want to Bring
We invite you to bring anything to dress up, decorate, or otherwise distinguish your display space. This may include table coverings, custom signage, rugs or other floor coverings. You are also responsible for bringing your own change, payment systems, and storage to completely manage all of your own transactions.
