Jazz Street Vending opportunities

Applications for vendor spaces now open!

On the Jazz Street, right next to the guest harbour, festival visitors gather to mingle, eat, drink and shop as well as to listen to the free concerts. The Jazz Street houses the beer tent, ticket sales point, information desk, Baltic Jazz Shop and the restaurant Stall's Bar & Food. Approximately 7000 people visit the festival area during the weekend.

You can apply to become a vendor by filling out the electronic application before 14 April (link below). The Baltic Jazz board will then choose the vendors for 2019. All applicants will be notified when the selection has been made.
