An invitation to artists, craftsmen and agrifood producers

As many exhibitors already know, 2018 is a restructuring year for the Sutton Christmas Market. The team of volunteers who ensured the set up and take down of the site informed us in 2017 that it would be the last year where they could be counted upon for this task.

We therefore decided to rent a third igloo, to replace the military tents. In 2018, the market’s outdoor installations will therefore be made up of 3 igloos, a wigwam and small 3 sided marquees. To ensure exhibitors’ comfort all installations will be heated and lit. We will also have a limited number of tables available indoors.

We expect to welcome approximately 60 exhibitors, we want at least 75% of them coming from the Brome-Missisquoi region. We are looking for a diversity of quality products from artistic, craft and agro-food vendors. Each exhibitor will receive an 8 foot by 30 inch table to offer their products, however you may request more room, by paying an extra fee, as indicated on the registration forms.

Setting up will be permitted as of 1 pm on Friday, or on Saturday morning. A security person will be watching the installations overnight on Fridays and Saturdays. Unless notice is given otherwise, all exhibitors will have to take down their set up between the two weekends.

Anyone interested in taking part as an exhibitor must fill and sign the registration form, as well as the electricity requirement form, if applicable. Places will be attributed in the order registration forms are received, but we will limit the number of tables which offer similar products. Requests to participate for a single weekend will be accepted only if another vendor has requested the other weekend. In this instance, the cost of registration will be half of the two weekend rate, plus $20.

If you want to get on board, you must fill up one of the registration forms and mail it out with your deposit at the address indicated at the bottom of the forms:

If we are unable to welcome you, your deposit will be fully refunded. To have your name listed in the promotional flyer, we must receive your registration form no later than September 1st, 2018, when we will be sending out confirmations to participants.

Please contact us for any additional information.

In 2011, the Corporation de Développement Économique de Sutton (CDES) asked a committee of volunteers to put together a Christmas market, inspired by the Christmas markets which grace many a European village. The volunteers were hooked, since then they relive the experience yearly.

The market is under the auspices of de CDES but it is entirely autonomous and must self-finance. In 2017, the market welcomed 70 exhibitors (45 from Brome-Missisquoi, 16 from Sutton), 9,000 visitors, it required over a thousand hours of volunteer work by 44 volunteers, it lit up the village for two weekends, in a period of time which is usually rather quiet.

The Christmas market also makes a contribution to Sutton community organisations by offering them a free table.

We are asking for your financial support for the 8th Edition of the Sutton Christmas Market which will take place on November 24 & 25, as well as December 1 & 2 of this year. We are very proud of the constant increase in the number of visitors year after year. The event gets people attention and brings them to Sutton to discover the region and come back to visit.

2018 will be a year of change with regards to the installations and equipment at the market. Considering vendors and visitors’ love for the inflatable igloos, we plan to have 3 in 2018. We will leave behind the military tents which are well worn. The igloos allow for better circulation and display of products.

Since last year we’ve offered to some vendors to sponsor the event. It ensures them a choice location and additional visibility for their products.

As the number of Christmas markets increase in all of Québec, we need to improve constantly in order to remain competitive. On the next page, you will find three levels of partnerships you may want to consider, “Christmas ball”, “Jingle Bell” or “Christmas Star”, with a description of their respective advantages:

Thank you for supporting us and taking an active part in putting together the Christmas market.

The Christmas market brings around visitors who enjoy stopping by the stores, restaurants and inns of the area. With regard to children’s activity, we built a fairy-tale decor to welcome Santa, a small electric train offers free rides and the miniature farm charmed kids and adults alike during the first weekend of the 2017 market.
