The Curb Makers Market in Trussville
Create Birmingham partners with The Curb to present a community arts event and makers market showcasing outstanding creative work in Trussville. In 2022, we hosted two markets, on Saturday, June 4 and Friday, November 25. In 2023, we will host one market during the holiday season, on Friday, November 24th. Set up for this market is styled differently than most markets. Rather than having individual vendor booths, selected participants will have their art and products curated and displayed by the owner of Curb Market, Ambre Amari. We will be accepting applications for the following:
Featured Artist: Receive a $500 grant to enable an artist, or community arts group, to perform during the market.
Up & Coming Maker/Artist: Receive a $150 grant to demonstrate your creative process (and sell goods) during the market.
Makers & Creatives: Receive a $100 grant and a Create Birmingham sponsorship to cover the costs of your booth so you’re able to keep all proceeds from your sales.
Application opens September 18
Application due October 25
Participants will be notified by October 27
Special thanks to the Office of Jefferson County Commissioner Joe Knight for supporting this initiative.
