Promote Your Participation
At Renegade, we believe in the power of community. Our force of Makers and artists made up of the best and brightest, and we are thrilled to have you as part of this movement.
We need your help to generate excitement and make our Fairs as bustling as possible.
Develop a simple campaign using your social media to talk about your involvement with the Fair. We love to hear from our makers, and engaging with us is the best way to see what our community is up to.
Facebook is one of the most effective platforms for local happenings and things to do. We advertise, target, and promote our events to reach new local audiences, and post to make each event as exciting as possible. Introducing a new line or product? We’d love for you to be a part of the conversation! Facebook Event
Know a cool coffee shop? An awesome park? Want to invite friends and family? Help us spread the word by printing our official poster or flyer and sharing the eFlyer on your social media. We’ll do the same!
Tweet, DM, call or mail local media outlets and blogs about your participation at the Fair. Anyone you think we should be talking to or advertising with? Let us know!
Using official #RenegadeCraft and #RenegadeMiami hashtags will help you be a part of the larger conversation, and help each Fair gain traction and visibility.
Head here to request available rentals for this Fair.

Booth Assignment + Directory
Use your booth number and the map here to find where you will be located.
Please note: Booth assignments are subject to change.
Load In and Out
Load-in will be staggered into 2 groups between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. on Saturday. Each group will be given 30 minutes to load into the Wynwood Yard, and you can set up until 11 a.m.
Group 1 / 9:30 – 10 a.m. – Booth Numbers 23 – 42
Group 2 / 10 – 10:30 a.m. – Booth Numbers 1 – 22
Vendors may load in through the main entrance of the Wynwood Yard off of 29th Street. We encourage approaching from the west to arrive on the side of the street closest to the main entrance. From the curb, we ask that you quickly unload all of your items, and then immediately move your vehicle to a parking spot nearby.
Please note, the parking in the area is pay to park.
There will be staff on-hand to help facilitate load-in. We will have a limited number of hand trucks available to use, and will require a photo I.D. as collateral.
Please note that vendors that arrive late or load-in after their assigned time without notifying the Rc team may have their booth forfeited at event start time. Vendors are also not permitted to spread out into empty booths outside of their assigned booth footprint.
A 6’x30″ table was included in your fee, and will be placed in your assigned space.
If you have rented chairs through Rc, you will need to pick them up from the Rental Depot, located next to the Info booth. They will be available during load-in. Please return all tables and chairs to the rental depot when loading out on Saturday evening.
Breakdown begins at 8 p.m. Please do not pack up early!
Load-out will happen the same way as load-in. Please help us make this a smooth and easy load-out by packing up your booth before bringing your car around.
Vendors are responsible for disposing their own trash at the end of the night! Please do not leave anything behind!
Set-Up + Sales
We encourage you to accept credit cards and cash at the Fair. Many mobile card readers now provide offline mode capabilities for your device or tablet, which allows you to accept swiped card payments when Internet service or your connection is giving you trouble. If you are using a processing device without WiFi, still keep in mind that the network sometimes gets a little crowded. If you’re having trouble, we recommend taking down the customer’s credit card information/telephone number and running the charge later when you have a stable connection.
Your booth display is entirely up to you, and we encourage you to make your set-up just as creative as the goods you are selling.
Your footprint will be a 6′ table. Tents are not allowed. Umbrella shade will be provided where appropriate.
Excelling at the Fair
It’s an exciting experience to come out of the studio and into a vibrant marketplace, so we’ve come up with a few tips that can help you make the most of your participation.
Business cards, buttons, postcards, catalogs, and other promotional materials are a great way to start the conversation with your potential buyers.
Include a mailing list sign-up at your booth, with signage to let folks know how to get in touch with you after the Fair, or how to follow you on social media.
Let buyers know that your business name and link to your website is also on the Renegade Craft website, in case they lose your information. Renegade reserves the right to select roster images and photos provided by the links submitted in your Participation Application. Our Roster is live, please check your business name and link are accurate.
Give a smile, say hello, tell attendees about your products, offer samples, and make a connection! People might be put off if you’re on your phone or iPad, so keep that in mind when trying to make the most of your participation.
Most people’s priority is to sell their work at the Fair, but also remember your work is being seen by thousands of attendees. This is your chance to make a lasting impression on a large audience, which could lead to future online sales, wholesale orders, editorial features, and other amazing opportunities.
We suggest bringing plenty of water, coffee, and snacks with you to keep you energized throughout the Fair. It is also helpful to bring a friend along to help run your booth and hold down fort so you can take a couple of breaks throughout the day.
