Artists’ Alley Vending

We are pleased to announce the opening of our Artists’ Alley application process. We have a great space for our Alley this year and are excited to make it available to our vendors. Artists’ Alley spaces are half-table only (3’L x 2.5’W). Each table will have plenty of room for storage, navigation, and of course, your customers.

There is a fee of $25/day for table space in Artists’ Alley. You also need a weekend or day badge.

Table space must be claimed by 1:00 PM on Thursday and by 11:00 AM Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Your space will be forfeited otherwise.

Please notify the Artists’ Alley staff if you know you will be late to arrive.

Accepting Payment

Artists’ Alley vendors may use the Furpocalypse Cashier or process their own transactions by showing proof of a CT Sales Tax Permit. The Cashier is located at the Con Store on the second floor near the escalators.

Furpocalypse Cashier

  • Furpocalypse will retain a 12% Processing Fee from all sales.
    • This fee consists of: CT Sales Tax (6.35%), PayPal processing fee (3.49%), and a Furpocalypse cashier processing fee (2.16%).
  • After Artists’ Alley closes on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, the total sales for that day will be tallied and sent via PayPal, minus the 12% processing fee.
  • Sunday’s sales will be sent to you within 7 days of the end of the event.
  • Any artists found selling items outside of the Furpocalypse Cashier without a CT Sales Tax ID will be removed from Artists’ Alley.

Adult Material

Adult materials need to be kept covered and in separately marked portfolios clearly labeled as adult material, i.e. “Adults Only”.

Content within the portfolio must be censored so no genitalia or female nipples are viewable.

All badges must be checked to verify the individual is not a minor before “Adults Only” material is viewed.

Artist Registration

  • All artists must be eighteen (18) years of age or older by the start of the convention.
  • Applications for the 2024 Artists Alley will open June 12th and close August 23th.
  • All applicants will be notified of their status on August 31st.
  • Applicants who are not initially accepted will be placed on a waiting list and notified should space become available.

Application Status Notifications

After the close of Artists’ Alley registration all applicants will be notified of their status. If accepted you will be required to submit payment for their space. Applicants who are not initially selected will be placed on the waiting list and will be contacted should openings become available.

Waiting List

If you were notified of being placed on the waiting list for a table space, we will contact you should a spot become available before the con.

Those people on the waiting list should check-in with the Furpocalypse Cashier an hour after opening each day in case there is unclaimed table space.
