Now Accepting Craft Fair Vendor Applications
Around 2,000 visitors, based on pancake breakfast sales, converge on Hinckley each year to enjoy this decades-old spring celebration. They come for the pancakes and stay for the craft fair, kids carnival, nature talks, and small town comforts.
The craft fair features forty booths granted on a first-come basis. Original, hand-crafted items, sold by the maker, are preferred. A limited number of third-party vendor slots allows for only one vendor per category/brand. Previous years’ vendors in good standing are given priority, however, new vendors are encouraged to apply in the event there is a wait list.
