Community Outreach Booth Requests
Since its inception, Bayou Boogaloo has grown from a 5,000-person grassroots event into one of New Orleans’ signature festivals. As a mission-based organization, Friends of Bayou St. John (FOBSJ)  prioritizes the following Foundation goals:
* Improving the quality of life for Louisiana residents
* Encouraging positive social change
* Promoting Louisiana art, music, and culture
* Promoting recreation
* Encouraging environmental stewardship and beautification
* Encouraging community engagement
* Improving opportunities for children and youthWe offer a platform for other non-profit organizations who share these same goals to showcase the good works they are doing for the community by providing a discounted space.
These community outreach booths are strictly for promotional purposes only.
Marketplace Vendor Applications

Marketplace applications are open!!! Please note if you apply for the Art Market your application will be waitlisted.

A $20 non-refundable application fee is required. Once your application has been received you will be sent an invoice in order to finalize your application.
Deadline to Apply is December 22, 2023.
Four digital images are required as part of your application. Image quality is essential; the best image is one that is fully framed with the artist’s single work, well lit, and is representative of the body of work intended for exhibition (please be sure these images are close-up views).


The Market Place is a retail space between Orleans and Toulouse facing the Main Stage. Vendors must be present to sell all three days. Unlike the art market, marketplace vendors may carry imported and non-handmade goods.

Marketplace Booth Fee: Spaces begin at $1200.


The art market accepts arts and crafts media and disciplines that feature unique and original handmade works. All work in this category must be 100% authentic and made by the exhibiting artist. Offset reproductions of the applicant’s original art may be sold. Still, they should represent a tiny percentage of the total work on display. No imported goods and/or resale items or T-shirts will be accepted.

This is an anonymous juried show, and as such, previous participation does not guarantee acceptance.

Art Market Booth Fee: $350 for single artist booths. 

Booth sharing is allowed for $25 per additional artist.

All artists must fill out an application and each applying artist is required to pay the application fee.
