Plaza Bazaar is a week-long event during the first week of the fall semester when students return to campus. It is located in the middle of the main plaza directly outside the Lory Student Center. Tables will be available for rent to outside vendors highlighting their products/services directly to the student body, which will only cost about $0.005/person exposed. Do not miss out on your chance to be a part of Plaza Bazaar – the only time outside vendors can table on the plaza. Reserve your spot today!
Due to COVID-19, the Plaza Bazaar for Fall 2020 is cancelled until further notice. Email the LSC Flea Market Manager or Call (970) 491-1114 for more information
