We are looking for Food & Beverage vendors to serve our 2,000 hungry & thirsty visitors to “Art at The Pumphouse Show and Sale”. With over 80 artists in attendance, this is The Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre most popular show of the year, supported by 2,000 enthusiastic art lovers. Public admission to Art at The Pumphouse Show and Sale is free. 

Visitors to the show, take advantage of our bistro and picnic area settings to relax and enjoy a meal while listening to local musicians.  Musical entertainment is in the vicinity of the food vendors and picnic areas.  Only steps away from displaying artists. Experience has shown music and a shady spot to sit in increases the time and dollars spent on food and beverages.

Breakfast your specialty?  Arrive early!  Our artist, staff, and volunteers eagerly await your arrival for that first meal, before the crowds arrive. 

Throughout the day, volunteers ensure our captive artists receive food and beverage breaks.  We rely on you to keep them fed and hydrated.

Your application must reach the office of The Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre on or before April 30th, 2020. Late applications may be considered depending on the availability of booths and menu selection.
