We are looking for vendors for our 11th Annual Holiday Shoppe & Craft Fair


The Danbury Museum and Historical Society would like to invite you to participate in our 11th annual Holiday Shoppe & Craft Fair. This event will run from Saturday, November 30, 2019, through Saturday, December 21, 2019, in the museum’s Huntington Hall at 43 Main Street in Danbury.

Participating vendors are required to set up their items on Monday, November 25 or Tuesday, November 26, between 10 and 4. 

The MANDATORY pick up dates for any remaining items are Saturday, December 21 from 4 pm to 6 pm, or Monday, December 23, between 10 am and 3 pm. All items MUST be picked up no later than Monday, December 23, 2019.

The museum has 18 exhibit cases and 15 tables available; cases and tables will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. This year there is no upfront fee—all the items sold will be split 50/50 between vendors and the Danbury Museum, so please price your items accordingly.

We do require each participating vendor to donate an item to the Friends of The Danbury Museum & Historical Society to be used for the Danbury Museum’s Hat City Ball fundraiser on January 24, 2020. These items must be supplied at the time of set up.

All vendors are required to provide a complete inventory list, and each item on your inventory list must have its own tag with your name or initials, the item number to correspond with your inventory sheet and the price clearly marked. Vendors are free to drop in and replenish stock as needed. An updated inventory list will need to be provided if items are added or removed from your display.

Savings Bank of Danbury Partners with the Danbury Museum on Rehabilitating the Charles Ives Home to Celebrate Shared History

In honor of their 170th anniversary, the Savings Bank of Danbury will sponsor Phase III of the rehabilitation of the Charles Ives Home, an important piece of Danbury and the Bank’s history.

“This project is only possible because the Savings Bank of Danbury chose to tell the story of their history through our Danbury Museum,” said Brigid Guertin, Executive Director of the Danbury Museum and Historical Society.  “Their story is part of the history of Danbury and they continue to be a strong supporter and member of our community. The result of our efforts will be a world class destination that we can all be proud of.”
