The deadline for participating as an arts and crafts vendor at the annual Christmas in the Village celebration is approaching.

Applications are now being accepted for the event on Dec. 11 in the Zachary Historical Village.

Christmas in the Village features an arts and crafts area, food trucks, dance and musical performances by local entertainment and photographs with Santa, providing a unique shopping opportunity for anyone with Christmas gifts to buy, Zachary officials said.

All applicants must be the creators of the art and crafts displayed and provide their own tent, tables, lights and extension cords.

Spaces will accommodate a 10-by-10-foot booth or tent. Setup will be outdoors on a graveled area behind the City Annex building facing Virginia Street.

About 25 vendors will be accepted. Each will operate as an individual entity and collect his or her own city and state sales taxes. A nonrefundable $25 fee will be charged per vendor space; however, the fees will be donated to the Christmas in the Village fund in an effort to enhance the celebration.

Applications can be downloaded at or picked up and returned to the Zachary Utility Payment Office, 4650 Main St. Applications are due by Monday, Nov. 30.
