Our 2024 Neighborhood Market will be located along Levine Avenue of the Arts under a large tent, adjacent to our main Festival Zone along Tryon Street. Our Neighborhood Market is designed for micro- and small businesses, local artisans, crafters, and entrepreneurs.
 
Your Neighborhood Market space will consist of a 6-foot table under a large tent, along with other vendors, in a configuration somewhat similar to small farmers markets. If you have questions before you apply, please reach out to vendors@charlottepride.org.
 
Because you will already be under a large tent, you will not need to bring or rent a tent.
