11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.



The 16th annual Privateer Festival celebrates Fells Point’s extensive maritime history.  We are excited to expand our event this year with a larger footprint – Broadway Square onto Broadway Pier – that includes two stages, and an increase in educational demonstrations, tours, and experiences.  Our expanded footprint also allows us to open the event up to more vendors and opportunities.

*Do note that the selection process is juried and vendor applications are subject to committee approval.  Preference will be given to Fells Point brick-and-mortar businesses and outside vendors selling comparable items will not be approved. There are a limited number of food vending opportunities and Fells Point businesses have right of first refusal. We will not accept any beverage vendors and do not allow our vendors to sell alcohol. Preference will also be given to vendors displaying/selling handmade items, nautical themed merchandise, and merchandise with historical reference. Approval from the committee is mandatory.

Registrants, if selected, agree to participate as a vendor in the 2020 Maritime Festival and will provide their own pop-up 10×10 tent, tables, chairs and all necessary equipment at their own expense.    Event is rain or shine and all vendors are required to have liability insurance and must provide proof in the form of a certificate of liability.  If you do not have liability insurance, you can find fairly inexpensive plans with ACT Insurance.  All food vendors are responsible for obtaining necessary permits from Baltimore City Health Department and displaying them prominently.

Registrants agree set up in spaces assigned by Fell’s Point Main Street and are responsible for removing any trash generated by their booth.  Electricity is not provided, and only silent generators will be permitted. All vendors are requested to respect the festival hours listed on the Fell’s Point Main Street website and early breakdowns will NOT be permitted.

Cancellations – We do not refund vendor fees for no shows or cancellations less than 72 hrs before the event. All requests must be sent by 11 am April 15th – no exceptions – and refunds will be given on a case-by-case basis. Fells Point Main Street reserves the right to reject refund requests at their discretion.  Cancellation requests should be sent to director@fellspointmainstreet.org.
