The W.G. Pearson Center Craft Fair

Calling All Local Handcrafted Artisans and Local Food Trucks

Student U Presents

APRIL 30, 2022  •  11 AM - 3 PM


The W.G. Pearson Center will be hosting our first craft fair on April 30th, 2022!

This will be an indoor and outdoor event located at the W.G. Pearson Center. 600 E. Umstead St. Durham, NC 27701 on Saturday, April 30th from 11am - 3pm.

Space is available for $25 for a 6x6 space inside our gym or cafeteria. You will be required to bring your own 6ft table, chairs, and other equipment you need for your setup. Electrical will be limited. The event will happen rain or shine and there are no refunds.** The only stipulation would be if the event needed to be canceled because of Covid and we would give ample notice if this happened and refund booth fees.

All funds from our booth fees will go to Student U’s Student Relief Fund. Student U is a community organization that uses the power of education to build a just and equitable Durham. We empower and equip first-generation college students in Durham Public Schools, their families, and educators to become the leaders that will transform our city. Together, we’re creating a Durham where all students succeed.


We have space available for four food trucks in a small parking lot that will be centrally located between the vendors. Each space is available for $100.

The road to get into the parking lot is a tight squeeze, so there is a limit to the size of the food trucks we are able to accommodate. The roadway is 13.5ft wide so all trucks must be smaller to ensure they can fit.
All food trucks must have the proper certificates/permits needed to operate in North Carolina and be self-sufficient. We do not have the resources to help with things like electricity.


-Space fees are due once your application is accepted for the event.
-No Application Fee
-No MLMs (Multi-Level Marketing)
-No alcoholic beverages (family friendly event)
-Masks are required inside the building (no exceptions)!

●Handmade original designs
●Products that use high-quality materials
●Photography is professional and high quality
