INTERESTED IN SELLING YOUR WARES IN 2016?
Each year we select 25-30 artists and merchants to be a part of the festival and sell their wares. We are looking for a mixture of unique and interesting artwork, photography, jewelry, textiles, clothing, glass, trinkets, bags, robots, etc. priced for college students.
We try to make the festival as interactive and relational as possible so we love to bring in vendors who not only care about their art, but connect well with festival goers as well.
FEES $15 ENTRY FEE
payable to “Campus House” with “Starry Night Merchant” on the memo line.
Each artist is evaluated individually and the fee is non-refundable. For those selected, a booth space fee of $50 (single booth) or $150 (double booth in a high traffic end spot) will be due by August 1.
We have finished accepting merchant applications for Starry Night 2016. Check back later to apply for Starry Night 2017.

This year we added a conversation couch, art tables, and a collective mural!
Read to Succeed is an initiative led by United Way of Greater Lafayette, Greater Lafayette Commerce, and local community school corporations who have come together to encourage kids in academic success. Through the use of volunteers who commit to serving weekly in various elementary schools, students are encouraged and challenged to develop their reading skills.
Developing children’s reading level at an early age has proven to play a role in keeping students in school, and for this reason, Starry Night is excited to support Read to Succeed.
As a college campus, we are often consumed solely by campus life, and it is easy to forget all that occurs just beyond our borders. Join us on September 13th as we support Read to Succeed and raise awareness about how we can positively impact the community around the Purdue campus.
