Market stalls

The market place around the quay is an integral part of the Ship Festival, and creates a great atmosphere and experience for the visiting public and crews.

You can apply for a market stand along Vågen during The Tall Ships Races 2018.

Who can be a stand-holder?

You can participate in food services, activities for the public or sell products related to maritime culture and industry. To rent a stand you must hold a registered business organisation number. In assessing the application, emphasis will be placed on the product or quality of service and its contribution in making a positive experience to the event.

What does it cost?

The cost will depend upon the size of the tent and additional outside area – a complete list of prices can be found in the application form below.  The smallest tent size is 9 m2 and costs NOK 9950 + VAT.  The price of the stand applies for all the event days and includes the hired tent – other facilities such as electricity and water much be ordered in addition from our suppliers.

Where will my market stall be placed in the Festival area?

The event area runs from Børevigå, at the Oil Museum, to Sandvigå, behind the Stavanger Concert Hall (see area sketch in the application form). You can state where you would like your stand to be located and we will do our best to meet your request.  If the space you want is already taken, we will provide you with an alternative place which you can agree to prior to your registration becoming binding.  We ask for your consideration as we will not be able to give all stand-holders their first choice location.

What are the opening times?

The event dates are Thursday 26th July – Sunday 29th July. The opening hours will be from 10:00 – 21:00 Thursday, Friday and Saturday and from 10:00 – 15:00 on the Sunday. You can apply for extended opening hours until 24:00 for an additional fee.  Your stand must be manned during official opening hours. Exhibitors will have access to their stands from Wednesday 25th July, 12:00.

Can I use my own tent?

Due to the planning and security of the event, our tent supplier is responsible for the erection of all the tents in the event area and therefore it is not possible to use your own tent or booth. Please contact us if you have a concept which requires more than a standard tent solution.  Mobile food units (food trucks) will be exempt from using a tent.

Is my application binding once I have sent it?

To make it easy to apply as a stand-holder, we have an online application form which you can fill-in online. This will serve as a binding agreement if The Tall Ships Races Stavanger provides written confirmation that your application has been accepted. If you have any further queries, please contact us before submitting your application.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
