Market Vendors

Thank you for your interest in working with the Piedmont Blues Preservation Society (PBPS) to make a great impact on our community! We are excited to provide an opportunity to foster and strengthen our community with quality Crafts, Artwork, Food and Blues Music.

The 36th Annual Carolina Blues Festival will be held on Saturday, May 21st, 2022. Festival gates will open at 3:00 pm and the show will go on until 11:00 pm at LeBauer Park (times subject to slight change). This is a ticketed event with limited space for Market Vendors.

 We will also be holding our Blues & Foods Market across the street in Center City Park on Sunday, May 22nd, 2022. This is a free community event with a larger Vendor Market, Food Vendors and live Blues Music.

We are looking for local Makers, Crafters and Artists for these two events.
