The goal of the Waunakee Artisan Market is to provide a selling venue that is artist-centered. This is an artisan market, not a craft fair. We want to keep the booth fee low & the quality high in a fun & beautiful atmosphere appealing to both shoppers and vendors. Our first priority is to provide a profitable venue for our local artists. 


For preferential approval, Waunakee & Westport area artists must submit their applications and fee by April 1, 2022.  All artisans wishing to apply as vendors may complete the online application below.



The Waunakee Artisan Market is offering 10 free juried booth scholarships available to high school and college student artists.  Scholarships are open to any high school students in the Waunakee School District or college students whose family home is in Waunakee, Westport, Dane or Vienna. Deadline to apply is May 31, 2022.  Students may apply online for the scholarship below.

We will remain mindful of pandemic conditions and will insure the safety of our vendors and participants by following the Dane County and CDC Public Health guidelines at the time of the event.
