PINK MARKET is a twice-yearly queer craft, fashion, art & lit fair.
We aim to give queer creators from Toronto and across Canada a platform for their work, connecting them to members of the public as well as fostering a community of LGBTQ artists and makers.
Our most recent edition, PINK XMAS 2016, was our most successful yet, with 40 vendors and over 1200 visitors from inside and outside the LGBTQ community.
Coming June 2017 to the Gladstone Hotel, a longtime cornerstone of Toronto's queer arts scene, PINK MARKET 2017 promises to be our largest event yet, with 50 vendors spread over two floors.

$100 — Full table
$50 — Half table
IS THERE A CHARGE TO ATTEND?
Attendance at the market is pay-what-you-can. (If what you can pay is $0, that's cool.)
CAN I VOLUNTEER AT THE MARKET?
Absolutely! We're looking for queer-positive volunteers looking to engage with the community and meet artists and artisans of all kinds.
IS THe MARKET "FAMILY FRIENDLY"?
We welcome guests of all ages to Pink Market events. However, many of our vendors and artists create sex-positive content or sell adult items, and some frank depictions of human anatomy or explicit language may be used in featured artwork.
IS THE VENUE WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE?
Yes! The first floor of the Gladstone is wheelchair accessible, with a ramp at the front door. An elevator is available to access vendors on the second floor. Washrooms are on the main floor in the adjoining Melody Bar space.
WILL YOU HAVE AN ASL INTERPRETER ON-SITE?
We are in the process of obtaining ASL interpretation for this event.
