We're excited to announce the return of TheBigWonderful to Stanley Marketplace July 7-9, 2017!  We've tweaked our format somewhat this year, moving away from weekly Saturday events and towards a new model of quarterly three-day weekend events.  We're also planning additional weekends in August in Parker, September in Denver, at 4400 Fox St, and November back at Stanley Marketplace.  

If you've vended with us in the past, you'll realize that we've done away with the 10% of sales payment.  We believe this new model will be simpler and better for everyone!  If you have additional questions after reviewing the FAQ below, please email us at


What is TheBigWonderful?

We are a family-friendly, outdoor marketplace, showcasing the local mix of Mile High Talent! Our Summer 2017 event will feature a wide variety of artisan vendors, farm-fresh food trucks, live music, craft brews + cocktails, outdoor games, a kids area, and so much more. 

What are the steps involved in signing up for TheBigWonderful Spring May 5-7?

1. Visit our Vendor Pricing page and “Add To Cart” the option that you prefer.

2. Complete the check out process by entering your info into the form and submitting payment.

3. You will receive a payment confirmation email and a charge on your credit card.

4. You will be notified by June 15th of final acceptance. If you are denied, a full refund will be processed at that time.

Am I guaranteed a vendor spot by submitting payment?

As always, we are a curated event. By submitting payment for one of our 2017 Vendor options, that shows us that you are ready and able to join us July 7-9th at Stanley Marketplace. However, that does not guarantee you will be selected to participate in the event. All vendors will be notified of final acceptance or denial. Applicants who have been denied will receive an immediate refund. 

Vendor Selection

We reserve the right to deny any registration, as space is limited. If a registration is denied a full refund will be provided no later than July 1st.

Booth Refunds & Transfers

We can not offer refunds or transfers of booth space if you are selected as a Summer 2017 Vendor. 

Vendor Agreement

Each vendor will be required to sign our 2017 Vendor Agreement before July 1st, which will be sent to you via DocuSign. 

How many people do you anticipate will be in attendance?  

If the weather cooperates, we believe a minimum of ~10,000 visitors will come through the gates over the weekend.  It's possible the number will be quite a bit larger than that.

What happened to the 10% of sales payment from past years?

 We decided it would be far simpler and better for vendors and for us to just do away with the 10% of sales payment.  We hope you agree!  

Can I leave my booth in place for the whole weekend?  

Weather dependent, we'll have the ability to secure the site with locked gates and security staff.  Booths must be weighed down & secured by 50LB Weights on each side.

What is the schedule for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday?  

Friday July 7th - 5PM - 10PM - Summer BeerFest

Saturday July 8th - 4PM - 10PM - Night Bazaar, Bands & Food Trucks

Sunday July 9th - 10AM - 6PM - Day Bazaar, Bands & Food Trucks

What are the load-in and load-out details?  

We'll send all of this information and more once we've selected the final vendor mix for July 7-9 in the next few weeks.  

Why should I choose this event?  

Well, this will be our fourth year of curating our unique mash-up of flea/craft/food truck park/beer garden/live music venue/dog park/kid playground/etc.  We've become a known and beloved entity among Denver's tastemakers and millennials and we are excited to return to Stanley Marketplace.
