Update as of 3/1/2023: We have currently filled all spots for the 2023 Alaska Scottish Highland Games Celtic Marketplace.  If you choose to submit an application after 3/1/2023 you will be added to a waitlist for spots that may open up due to cancelation or additional spots being added to the Celtic Marketplace Layout.  If you have any questions or need additional help please contact us at [email protected] or 907-602-0901.

We are welcoming applications for vendor booth space at the 2023 Alaska Scottish Highland Games. We are happy to receive applications, but please understand that we cannot guarantee booth space to all who apply. Applications will be considered by the organizers of the event for the appropriateness of wares and/or services regarding the theme of the event.* Organizers will also be taking into consideration the number of similar vendors participating and the History of vendors at the ASHG.  Vendors will be notified within 7 business days of receipt of application and any applicable fees if their application was accepted. Placement on the grounds is on a first-come, first-served basis, previous vendor placement is also considered if the vendor line is impeding the flow of traffic or ability to access other vendor spots.  We do not accept MLM Vendors, Sales Vendors, or Political Vendors, thank you for your understanding.

*When planning for the merchandise, entertainment, or food that may be offered at your booth, please remember that the Alaskan Scottish Club considers the appropriateness of wares and or services regarding the theme of the event. The games are not just any festival or fair, we are a Scottish Festival celebrating all things Scottish. With Merchandise, we are looking for handmade artisan style items, not MLM, Direct Sales, or Fair type items. For Food we are looking for traditional Scottish favorites or creative takes on Scottish Favorites. While we absolutely understand that not every vendor can offer only Scottish themed items, vendors need to bring some type of “Scottish Flare” to their booth. Rather it be Tartan/Scottish décor, Scottish inspired crafts or arts, employees wearing kilts, giving a normal menu item a Scottish name, or even creating a Scottish inspired food, we love to see our vendors become even more a part of our Scottish event and our attendees appreciate this also!  Scottish Flare is a requirement not an option. If you would like some ideas, please contact us, we are happy to help with suggestions. 

Because vendors play a major role in the experience at the Games and to help encourage Scottish Flare at your booth, the Alaskan Scottish Club, with the help of attendees (Peoples Choice Award), votes and awards our vendors special awards for their Scottish Flare.  The Best-In-Show Scottish Flare Vendor for 2023 will have their 2024 ASHG Vendor Booth Fee Waived.   Congrats to our 2022 ASHG winners:

  • Best-In-Show Scottish Flare: Bitchin' Biscuits
  • Best Scottish Food Vendor: Parley (Captain's Coffee Roasting Co.)
  • Best Scottish Merchandise Vendor: Rebal Oddities and Design
  • Most Creative Scottish Flare: Northern Whimsy Art Studio
  • Most Creative Scottish Food: The Hungry Robot
  • People's Choice: Alaska's Best Gourmet Dogs 

Please read all information included in the Vendor Information Packet found at our website. The Alaskan Scottish Club, Alaska Scottish Highland Games, and the Alaska State Fair, Inc. assume no liability for the safety/quality of the products sold or offered to the public by the individual vendors.  If you have any questions please contact us, we are happy to help!
