This year’s craft event is a partnership between the HarborFest Craft & Gourmet Food Fair and the Mermaid MegaFest Pirate Street Faire - creating an awesome opportunity to present your merchandise at what is sure to be South Haven’s largest summer craft phenomenon.
HarborFest is a celebration of Michigan’s unique maritime history that will be celebrating its 28th annual milestone. This year’s event will continue to feature the exciting Dragon boat races, the Live Entertainment Stage, the Food Fest and the Waterfront Beer Garden.
Mermaid MegaFest is a gathering of merfolk dedicated to promoting efforts to “Protect our Water Wonderland and raising public awareness of the challenges our Great Lakes ecosystem face. And it's not just for mermaids - mermen and merkids, along with sailors and nefarious pirates, will be everywhere! This year’s festival is being scheduled for Father’s Day weekend in anticipation of warmer swimming waters.
Held on the same weekend, HarborFest and Mermaid MegaFest will each have their own schedule of events at different venues throughout South Haven. However, they have decided to combine their efforts for the 2019 Water Street Faire, creating a bigger and better experience for craft and gourmet food vendors.
The venue will be Water Street, along Waterfront Park in South Haven. The street will be closed to vehicle traffic throughout the fair. Booths located on the eastern section of the street will be assigned to HarborFest’s crafter and gourmet food vendors. Booths located on the western section of the street will be assigned to Mermaid MegaFest’s mermaid grotto and pirate street faire vendors. Vendor’s section preference can be designated on their application form. All vendor rules (such as booth size, hours, fees, etc.) are the same throughout the entire booth area.
Any questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
