September 12, 2018 - Make Savannah has partnered with Savannah Philharmonic as the single premium merchandise retailer for Picnic in the Park and is currently seeking maker applications to exhibit during Savannah’s largest outdoor cultural event of the year. In celebration of the orchestra's tenth anniversary, 10 makers will be exclusively selected to sell products to the annual event’s nearly 20,000 attendees. Picnic in the Park, presented and produced by Savannah Philharmonic, will be held on Sunday, Oct. 7 with vendor sales beginning at 3 p.m.

Makers are entrepreneurs, craftsmen, artisans, photographers, writers, chefs, collectors and designers with a local product. To qualify for selection, products must be handmade or innovated in the Savannah community. Applications are accepted from a broad range of product categories including custom jewelry, high-quality craft and handmade items, food and beverage goods, tools, furniture and home accessories, illustrations and more. Makers are selected based on the following product differentiators:

  • Local connectedness

  • Quality

  • Uniqueness

  • Marketability

  • Reputation

  • Online and social media presence favorable, but not required

A fee is required to participate. To apply, applicants must complete an online application and send product photos to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., with the subject line Picnic in the Park. The deadline to apply is Friday, Sept. 28.
