The City of Belleville is now accepting applications from interested vendors for the Pop-Ups on the Bay 2021 season.
All vendors are welcome to apply, especially those whose businesses will enhance the park and the waterfront, including but not limited to, recreational equipment providers like kayak and bicycle rentals and sales, guided tour providers, clothing and goods retailers, fitness instructors, local food and craft producers, food and beverage vendors, food truck operators and other vendors that would suit this waterfront location and support experiential tourism development efforts.
Pop-Ups on the Bay are located at West Zwick’s Park and is scheduled to kick-off May 28th and will operate until September 26th. Vendors can apply by submitting an Expression of Interest – visit popupsonthebay.ca. This is the only opportunity bidders may have to apply for a Pop-Ups on the Bay location and applications will be accepted until 1:00pm, on Tuesday, February 24, 2021.
PLEASE NOTE: The City of Belleville continues to plan for the 2021 Pop-Ups on the Bay season, despite uncertainties around the pandemic. The operating season will be assessed based on the recommendations from Public Health. It is important to reassure applicants that the submission of Pop-Ups on the Bay application will not obligate anyone to become a vendor this summer. Instead, it indicates an interest in this project and allows the City to offer successful applicants a spot for the season and plan for the size and scope of this year’s Pop-Ups on the Bay initiative. Successful applicants will be required to enter into a lease agreement with the City before the event launch date.
