RSF Gypsy Bazaar Application
Welcome to the application info page for the RSF 2019 GYPSY BAZAAR.
The Gypsy Bazaar is an off-shoot of our Market Bazaar. It is more casual, economical and flexible, yet does not include the power and parking access afforded to the permanent sites.
Coming into our 22nd year of operation, we are going strong, with increased ticket demand and artistic and environmental innovation. With close to 20,000 in attendance and 4 days of 24 hour operation, there is a huge scope for exposure and trade in our Market Bazaar.
The site is located in Lexton, Victoria, amongst the beautiful Pyrenees landscape. We are approximately 2 hours drive from Melbourne.
The dates for the 2019 event are 25-28 January. The gates officially open at Midday on the Thursday (24th) and the event (officially) closes at Midnight on the Monday (28th). You should arrive and depart between these times.

NOTE: ‘‘Gypsy’ stalls will need to carry a copy of their gypsy permit at all times while trading, which will be issued to you onsite when you arrive and report to the Market Coordinator on duty. Any trading impermanent or blanket stall without this permit for presentation to any RSF officials requesting it will be asked politely to pack up (and the second time will be asked to leave the event). Renegade stalls will not be tolerated out of fairness to the organised and fee-paying market stall-holders.)
It is strongly advised to submit your application as early as possible and, if approved, pay your fee just as promptly. Your application is not confirmed until your payment has been received so it is advised to act fast in order to make it in and reserve your preferred site.
It is preferred that you pay the fee in full, however you may pay 50% deposit to secure your place and pay the remaining balance by October 1st.
Refunds will be given on cancelled (or name changed) applications conditionally according to the below timescale:
Prior to October 1st: Full refund minus a $75 admin fee
Oct 1st - Nov 30th: 50% Refund
December 1st - Event Date: No refund. (Unless with verified valid reason AND able to be replaced, then % refund negotiable)
Note: Your application is not confirmed until the deposit has been received.
