Sundog is held at SaskTel Centre on both the arena and concourse levels (both levels have first class load in/load out capacity – bringing your own cart helps move things along).  A floor plan is unavailable at this time, however, accepted marketers will be assigned their booth allocation with every attempt to satisfy location and space preferences, with a balanced floor plan the ultimate goal. Corner & double booths will be assigned on a draw basis if demand exceeds supply.

Booth sharing by individuals is encouraged but these must be approved by the Board of Directors.

Each exhibitor must be a Sundog member and juried individually.

Jurying:

Each application must be accompanied by superior quality, hi-resolution images typical of the product to be sold. Your images will be used on social media for your marketer’s spotlight, please ensure your images are high quality. Sundog is a family-friendly show and products with profanity will not be accepted.   If you have any questionable products, please describe and send an image for the Board to Jury. Please explain how your product is made in as much detail as possible. We give preference to Artists creating unique products.  Component products such as stringing pre-purchased beads, or gluing purchased items together isn’t the artistic level we are looking for.

We require: 

3 to 6 images using jpeg format submitted with this application, with images corresponding to image description list on the application form. Photographs/slides will not be accepted. Our website application allows you to easily upload your photos.

Applicants must be the producer of the work sold at the Faire.  Except in rare circumstances, work made from a commercial kit/mould will not be considered.

Booth:

When the floor plan is being laid out, we strive for a balance of mediums between the concourse and arena levels at SaskTel Centre.  While your preferences will be considered, Sundog reserves the final decision as to booth location. Please be aware that during the Faire you will be asked to remove any articles that have not been itemized on the application and accepted. Booths will be evaluated during the show.  Please do not conduct business in any manner outside your display booth. This includes the distribution of literature, product demonstrations or any other method of soliciting sales.
