ELK GROVE

ILLUMINATION HOLIDAY FESTIVAL

Presented by

Happy holidays, neighbor!

We are excited and proud to be partnering with the City of Elk Grove (our longtime partner for NeighborGood Market: Elk Grove) to coordinate the market portion of the 3rd annual Illumination Holiday Festival on Saturday, December 3rd from 3pm-8pm.

NOTE: The previously scheduled final NeighborGood Market: Elk Grove on Thursday, December 1st will be cancelled and will be moved to Saturday, December 3rd instead.

About the Illumination Holiday Festival

Because of this very special partnership with the City of Elk Grove, this will be the BIGGEST NeighborGood Market of the year!

Here’s all the fun to expect in the neighborhood:

A pop up ice skating rink

Multiple live music performances throughout the venue 

Expanded shopping areas 

Photos with Santa  

Bounce houses 

The Parade of Lights that goes right past District 56 

And, of course, the lighting of the Ribbon Tree!

Based on previous Illumination Holiday Festivals, The City of Elk Grove is estimating thousands of people in attendance to this year’s event. So, if you are a vendor, this is one you DO NOT want to miss!

We are looking for all vendor types selling gifts, specialty foods, hot foods, and food trucks, but are also especially interested in any holiday specific vendors in any of these categories.

How To Apply

UPDATE: We are currently SOLD OUT of spots for Hot Food and Food Truck vendors, and the wait list is FULL for those categories. However, there are still openings for prepack/prepared food, artisans, and community spaces!

If you are already a NeighborGood Market: Elk Grove Vendor...

  • Due to the limited vendor space availability and the desire to have as diverse a group of vendors as possible, we will be highly curating the vendor list
