Beekman 1802 cordially invites you to be an exhibitor or present your wares to Josh and Brent at Brewery Ommegang & Beekman 1802 Belgium Comes to Cooperstown Event in Cooperstown, NY on Saturday, August 4 , from 12p – 5p at the Brewery Ommegang grounds.

This is the 1st time ever that Beekman 1802 will be hosting an open artisan call.

The Beekman 1802 Artisan Ommegang is a small village of only 35 featured artisans selling their handcrafted wares to attendees. This curated Artisan Ommegang will be hand selected by Beekman 1802 & Brewery Ommegang and have the opportunity to showcase their works to over 3,000+ people.

In addition to vending at the Artisan Ommegang, the 35 selected artisans will have a guaranteed opportunity to present to Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Dr. Brent Ridge, The Fabulous Beekman Boys and co-founders of Beekman 1802. Vendor fees collected for the Beekman 1802 Artisan Ommegang will be distributed at the event in a pair of cash grants by Beekman 1802. A portion of the fees will go to an established artist to further their business, and a portion will be awarded to a new artist selected by Beekman 1802 co-founders, who will feature that artist at the Beekman 1802 Mercantile in Sharon Springs.

Artisans will have a 10 x 10 area. Tent not provided. Set up begins at 9am at Brewery Ommegang and must be finished with set up by 11am.

For those interested in the open artisan casting call only, from 11a- 12p: Please fill out form and check the box
