We're seeking independent vendors to join us in celebrating AAPI heritage and culture in the Greater Princeton Area!

Whether you're a first-time vendor or an established one, if you're interested in showcasing authentic art, merchandise, or food inspired by the richness of Asian and Pacific Islander traditions, we invite you to be a part of this vibrant event. Let's come together to celebrate our AAPI community's ethnic and cultural diversity in the heart of Princeton!

Vendor RequirementsEquipment: Vendors must provide all of their own equipment required for their setup, including tables, chairs, lights, displays, and any other items necessary for their operation. Electricity is available for vendors who need it - just be sure to note this requirement in your application form!
