For Vendors


On behalf of the Town of Chapel Hill and the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership, you are invited to be a part of a new community celebration!

Click here to apply to be one of our partners.

Here’s what we are asking of our community cultural partners this year:

You provide an interactive cultural activity for participants to engage with and/or a craft to “make and take”. You might teach someone a few phrases in a different language.  Or have a world culture quiz with prizes. Maybe teach a dance step or two.  Some of last year’s make and take crafts included painted deerskin and soccer balls made from plastic bags.  We know you will come up with a great experience to share. You can also have information about your organization on display and talk to folks about you organization’s mission, initiatives, programs, etc.

Here’s what you get:

You get to be part of a great community event that shows off the diversity of our community and our world.  You get to interact with a couple thousand folks and share about your organization’s good work.  You will be listed on the event’s website and thanked in event signage and announcements. You will also get our enduring thanks and appreciation.

Interested?  Available? Want to talk more?  Fill out this form to get the conversation started.
