Festival Bazaar

Market places at Jaipur Literature Festival

Festival Bazaar

23rd - 27th Jan 2020

Described as the 'greatest literary show on earth', the Jaipur Literature Festival is the world's largest free event of its kind.

Apart from being a change-making platform for dialogue, the festival is also an empowering platform for artisans, weavers and craftsmen of talent from across India. It strives to empower artisans/ craft clusters and young entrepreneurs in the handcrafted industry and enables them to reach a wide consumer-base.

The space ensures a diverse range of products; hand tooled to perfection, showcased for the world in a colorful, vibrant bazaar space.

We look for both uniqueness and variety: funky stationery, unusual gifts, edgy or traditional clothing, exquisite jewellery, comfy footwear, novel lifestyle and home décor goods all come together under one buzzing space.

There are 3 distinct market venues-

The main Festival Bazaar at Diggi Palace – stalls here are open to all designers, artisans, weavers and crafts people. 9 am to 7 pm on all 5 days of the festival.

The Pool Bazaar – this is a subsidized space with stalls being offered to NGO’s, craft collectives and people working in the development and sustainable space. 9 am to 7 pm on all 5 days of the festival.

The Night Market - at the Jaipur Music Stage at Clarks Amer. 7 pm to 10 pm for 3 days of the festival.

STALL SELECTION

  • If your products are found to be suitable, you will receive an official confirmation email along with other important details.
  • In case we take a decision to forgo your products, we will advise you in writing by an email too.
  • Chosen stalls will trade in creatively designed/ hand-worked items.
  • Stalls are allotted at the sole discretion of the curators of the Jaipur Literature Festival.
  • All decisions on selection of the stall exhibitors will close by 20th Dec 2019.

BILLING SYSTEMS

  • Like previous years we look forward to giving our visitors and exhibitors a unique, vibrant and robust marketplace experience wherein each exhibitor is able to sell and be responsible for his/her individual billing.
  • The Festival will use a pre-loaded card payment system (commonly used all over in malls, exhibitions and food courts), in addition to credit/debit card machines. Exhibitors will be introduced to the system via workshops and sessions will be held in Jaipur prior to the Festival. We shall provide Cashless Card Machines (NFC) & EDC Machines to every Merchant Partner.
  • This cashless system has been introduced to avoid long queues and to make the entire selling process transparent and to encourage the digital payment initiative of the Government.

The stall location will be intimated on 20th of Jan 2020 by email only. Decision on the stall location will be finalized by the JLF Bazaar Curators and we reserve the right to reallocate stalls if necessary for any operational reasons.

When do you forfeit your right to the stall without any refund?

  • Any participant found to be sub-letting shall be asked to vacate the stall space.
  • This platform is for hand made goods from India. Thus participants found to be selling foreign/ inferior-quality mass-produced goods shall be asked to vacate the stall space.
  • If any participant continues to contravene the terms and conditions of the festival despite warnings.
  • Anyone found handling direct cash in his or her stall space shall be liable for immediate stall cancellation.

Things to keep in mind during the Festival
