The two founders of Jackalope Arts, Melissa Kohout, and Sara Diederich met through their time spent working with an international arts organization, creating regular art-centered events in Denver, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle.
We shared the passion to create a “community meets artisan event” focused on the experience of meeting the maker and bringing the local community together in this. With that vision, we joined together on this new venture, launching the Jackalope: Indie Artisan Fair in our home cities of Pasadena, California, and Denver, Colorado.
Jackalope has been hosting semi-annual events in both Pasadena and Denver since the spring of 2015 and with the addition of Burbank in 2019. 2021 marked a new location for Jackalope, adding Minneapolis to the roster.
Each fair showcases over 150 local makers who focus on handmade artistry.
What types of vendors will be exhibiting?
We will be accepting handmade designs into the fair, including visual art, fashion design, accessory design, bath and body care, home decor, housewares, food, and more.
No vintage or resale items will be permitted.
We are looking to feature original designs and handmade goods made by the artisan who will be showcasing during the event. Manufactured goods are permitted as long as they are your original concept.
STATE Requirements: All vendors must have a temporary or permanent CA seller’s permit by the time you vend with us. See California Board of Equalization website for more information.
CITY Requirements: The City of Pasadena requires a Special Event Permit for each participant. Jackalope Arts facilitates Special Event Permit purchases for all accepted vendors.
Food Vendor Requirements: Vendors selling food products will be subject to a TFF Permit with the Pasadena Health Department. Jackalope Arts facilitates this TFF permitting process.
Insurance Requirements: It is suggested that all participating vendors obtain general liability insurance prior to vending.

Special Covid Protocols
To ensure safety for both vendors and guests throughout the duration of the fair, please be aware of the following event modifications that vendors must adhere to:
Upon arrival, the event vendor must check-in at the info booth and receive a temperature check / verify no Covid symptoms.
All booths will have 10 feet between each other. We will still have corners of adjacent booths touching to keep our rows secure, but there will be 10 feet of vacant space on both sides of each booth, as well as behind.
Face masks are required when not in a designated eating area.
Traffic flow will be regulated throughout the rows to help maintain social distancing standards.
Prepackaged food vendors may not sample at their booths.
Food vendors may offer samples following Pasadena’s restaurant guidelines within the food court area.
$15 non-refundable fee due upon application covers the costs for our staff and jury to review applicants. (No application fee in 2021)
Special Event Permit: Permit cost is $51 for the event, or free if you already have a Pasadena-specific annual business license. The permit process will be facilitated by Jackalope Arts.
Food Vendor TFF Permit: TFF permitting ranges from $75 – $174 depending on your type of food sales. Jackalope Arts will help facilitate the proper TFF paperwork and payment.
