FAQ

Why is there a ticket fee?


Great question! We don't consider our Makers Market Sun Prairie a "traditional craft fair" like you may be used to. It's an event for us, where you get to enjoy live music, food trucks, and a curated line up of incredibly talented local makers. It's an event that is not free to host by any means once you consider the additional insurance, city permits, porta potty rentals, musician fees, marketing, grounds rental, our time spent coordinating and so many more small details. As a small business trying to create new events for the community the entrance fee helps us cover these costs. We truly try to make our event an experience that you can come share the whole day with us.
