Annual Riverside Art Market 2020
Saturday, April 4, 2020 | Free Admission
This year Art Market will be taking it to the street!
The Art Alliance is thrilled to announce that, along with first-floor vendor booths in the museum, we’ll also be filling Mission Inn Avenue with vendor booths, art demos, crafts for kids, entertainment, a beer and wine garden, and much more. We expect to draw over 2500 visitors to this free, family-friendly, fun-filled event!
Our goal is to make this one of the premier art markets in the Inland Empire and by taking it to the street we expect this year to be a big step toward that goal. All proceeds go to support the Riverside Art Museum and last year over $20,000 was raised to support art and culture in the Inland Empire!
We’d like to give a big shout out to the wonderful vendors we’ve had in recent years and encourage anyone who is interested to submit a vendor application.
With free admission and free children’s crafts and art demonstrations, plus the expansion of the market to Mission Inn Avenue, the Riverside Art Museum and Art Alliance is seeking sponsorships to help make this event a success. We hope you’ll consider supporting this free, community-oriented event.
For the 2020 Riverside Art Market we have over 80 prime booths available including 17 sites on the first floor of RAM; 8 spots on the front lawn of RAM; and 57 spots on Mission Inn Avenue between Lemon and Lime street.
Choice of your site is FIRST-COME/FIRST-SERVED.
You must sign and return a waiver. You may submit the waiver by attaching it in the online application when you select your booth (which makes it automatic) or by mailing it to the Riverside Art Museum or emailing email@example.com. Mailed or emailed waivers must be received within 5 business days or the booth you have selected will be released. If you share a booth with another artist or artists, submit only one application; however, they will also need to sign and return a waiver.
There is no charge for selecting your booth, and no additional fee for sharing a booth.
Early Bird Pricing ends February 15th. Applications are accepted through April 1st.
RAM members receive discount pricing, along with free entrance to the museum.
We will provide white EZ up canopies to all outside vendors (no personal EZ ups are allowed). EZ ups will be set up for all vendors by 7:30 am April 4th. No EZ ups are allowed inside RAM.
Looking forward to seeing you all on April 4th!

This event is free and open for the entire community to enjoy. The Riverside Art Market is a fun-raiser as well as a fund-raiser! Last year, visitors:
shopped from 86 local and regional artists;
enjoyed music, art demonstrations, food, wine and beer offerings; and
created art of their own—children had their own kid-friendly crafts and activities.
