Apply for Holiday 2013 Show!

We are now accepting vendor applications for the FIFTH annual PDCM Holiday Crafterino! This year's show will be held Saturday, November 30th from 11am to 4pm at Petaluma Veterans Memorial Building. For the past four years our holiday shows have been wonderfully successful with very happy vendors and shoppers and we are looking forward to an even bigger turnout this year! This year we return to the beautiful Petaluma Veterans Memorial Building!

Crafterino is also a major fundraiser for COTS – The Committee on the Shelterless. COTS provides meals and beds for people in need in the Petaluma area. To date we have raised over $6000 for COTS and we continue to support them by donating all raffle ticket sales and door fees to them.

  1. Happy to know that this is a great opportunity for vendors to take part in such event. Had attended such event at LA venues with my close friend who is an event planner. There were so many new ideas there and new techniques were used for d├ęcor arrangements. Really had a good time.
