2023 DCC Local Markets

The vendor application process for the Christmas Market and Pop-Up Markets will be handled using a single application for the whole year. If you are interested in participating in any of the markets, please fill out the application form (located below)


Christmas Market 2023

This is our oldest and longest running market - over 35 years! Vendors from all over Manitoba set up and sell their wares during this 2-day weekend event in November.

Market Dates for 2023: Saturday, November 4th from 10.am. - 5 p.m. and Sunday, November 5th from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Location: Jonathan Toews Sportsplex
Cost: $5 per day (Kids 10 & under free)

Cancellation Policy: If you are accepted as a vendor but can no longer attend, you will have until October 1, 2023 to notify us (colleen@dakotacc.com). We will issue a refund (minus a $25 administration fee.) After that date, no refunds will be issued.


Pop-Up Markets

Pop-Up Markets will do just that - pop up out of nowhere. These markets are going to be smaller in nature and will occur during larger events that take place at Dakota Community Centre. Location of the markets will vary depending on the event and will be communicated as each pop-up market is announced. To participate, simply check off the option in the application form and we'll inform you when these markets occur.

Cancellation Policy: A cancellation policy will be communicated for each pop-up market event.
