About Us

What is San Francisco Bazaar?

Bazaar Bizarre began in 2001 in the Boston-area as an offbeat entertainment extravaganza to showcase the DIY movement and handmade goods.  It has spread across the nation to cities such as Los Angeles, Cleveland, Maker Faire Bay Area and Austin. San Francisco Bazaar is the west coast branch of this faire. Expect a Handmade market, Indie entertainment extravaganza and D.I.Y. Festival all under one roof!

What kinds of crafts will be there?

Each year San Francisco Bazaar features hundreds of  juried artists and designers. Shoppers can expect to find the crème de la crème of indie goods: handbags, pottery, letterpress stationary, silk-screened t-shirts, baby clothes, zines, posters, body products and more! Check out our Flickr Photo Page for images of past events or our Vendor Gallery for the vendors selling at our upcoming show!

When and where is this show being held?

Locations vary in each show. Please visit each show page to determine the venue.

How do I apply for your show?

We welcome you to join our mailing list. We will send notifications about future show applications to this list first. Vendor applications are juried by a rotating panels of guest judges.

What does it mean when you say you’re a “juried craft fair”?

San Francisco Bazaar is a juried event with rotating guest judges from the greater craft community. San Francisco Bazaar supports artists and craftspeople that appeal to the aesthetic of the indie art and craft scene and have innovative approaches to traditional craft forms. We do not accept all our applicants and traditionally we have had more applicants than spaces available for our show.

Do vendors need a CA seller’s permit?

Yes. All our vendors must have a temporary or permanent CA reseller’s permit by the time you vend with us. California law states that you must have a resale certificate in order to make sales. You are considered a retailer if you are selling any tangible items to customers.

What promotional opportunities are available at San Francisco Bazaar?

Sponsorships and Advertising opportunities are available. Please see our Sponsorship Page for more information. Have other ideas about how to cross-promote? E-mail us, we’re happy to talk to you!
