  • Overview

    Hellllllo Friends! 👋 We are so excited to announce the vendor applications for the April A Big Gay Market are OPEN until 4/1 on our website! 🎉

    If you haven’t heard, we are SO thrilled to announce our TWO sponsors for ALL our markets - In Our Own Voices and Councilmember Gabriella Romero <3 Their support allows us to have a waived permit fee which helps us invest right back into the event and donate more back to Camp Unirondack. Thank you!

    🌈Join us on Sunday, April 28th from 11AM - 3PM at Washington Park in Albany on Knox Street Mall Rd! Vendor applications CLOSE on April 1st. Community Area Applications OPEN April 1st and CLOSE April 25th. Our rain date would be Sunday, May 5th but please note we are a shine or sprinkle event!

    A Big Gay Market has a sliding scale vendor fee from $15 - $105 to offset costs to run a market at this size as well as ensure we can have a free community area and kids area. Once you apply and pay your vendor fee you are ACCEPTED into the market. All vendors will receive consistent logistical emails from C leading up to the event starting in late March. If you want to be a vendor, but the cost of the vendor fee is a barrier, please email C at c@abiggaymarket.com. We have limited free spots available donated from previous vendors who had to give up their slots.

    Please note - this is a partial fundraiser for Camp Unirondack’s Queer Youth Advocacy Retreat! All vendors have the option to donate a portion of their sales to the retreat. Our collective goal is $10K to ensure the retreat remains accessible for queer and gender expansive youth across the state! This $10K includes providing transportation to the camp, room and board, all meals, stipends for presenters, and other operations to create one of the few places queer and gender expansive youth can see hope in action.

    We are SO excited for another year of A Big Gay Market! If interested in joining a volunteer committee, our volunteer orientation will be on Zoom on Wednesday, March 13th from 6PM - 7PM. To register, please head to link in our bio <3

    See YOU in April! 🌈
