Call for Spring 2019 Artists


We’ve holidayed and New Year’d, and now it’s time to prepare for Mayday! Underground’s Tenth Annual Spring Show! That’s right: the first Mayday! event was held on May 1, 2010, making this the tenth year of shows. What?!

Our spring show will be held on April 27, 2019 at Village Gate, Rochester, NY.

It’s the weekend before the biggest holiday of the year and you only have a few hash marks through that gift giving list. Sound familiar? We’ve all been there. This year, Mayday’s got your back. We’ve created the perfect local/handmade shopping experience.  Our goal is to provide you with an array of unique goods to make a one hour shopping trip look like it took you months to curate the perfect gift for everyone. Free swag bags for the first 25 shoppers, 25 artist’s booths, Free admission, free parking and great on-site eats. Handcraft your shopping experience: make a day of it with loved ones or get quality shopping done, quick as a wink. 

Plan your shopping experience by getting to know all of the artists in attendance and what they will be bringing to the market by adding yourself to the FB event page here:
