SAVANNAH, GA – Nov. 6, 2023 – Savannah African Art Museum is looking for African Arts and Goods vendors for their Kwanzaa marketplace on the first three Fridays and Saturdays in December leading up to Kwanzaa, which is celebrated December 26 to January 1. The marketplace will take place on December 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, and 16 from 12-4 p.m. in the Museum’s Courtyard, located at 201 East 37th Street in Savannah. Each marketplace will feature different vendors from the local and regional community and free admission to the public.
Previous marketplaces have featured African and African centered visual arts, clothing, décor, jewelry, and all-natural handmade body care products. Those interested in applying to participate as a vendor in the festivities are encouraged to visit https://www.savannahafricanartmuseum.org/kwanzaa-marketplace-2023 for more information about Kwanzaa and application guidelines before November 21.
“Our inaugural marketplace was a hit last season, so in response to the community, the Museum added Saturdays and extended the dates to three weekends to share the experience with more people,” said the Museum’s Education and Community Outreach Liaison, Lisa Jackson. With that decision, Billie Stultz, the Executive Director decided to open the vendor opportunity to local vendor applicants in the spirit of Kwanzaa.
