THE PLAINS, Virginia – February 2022 – Great Meadow International is now accepting vendor applications for its festive Meadow Market during the event.
The MARS EQUESTRIAN™ Great Meadow International (MARSGMI) takes place in The Plains, Virginia on August 25-28, 2022 and offers CCI4*-S, CCI3*-S, CCI2*-S and preliminary divisions.
After being cancelled due to COVID-19 in 2020, the Meadow Market made a triumphant return to MARSGMI in 2021. With a variety of food trucks, vendors, and spectator experiences, the Meadow Market adds a unique aspect to the event.
Because space is limited in the Market, vendors are asked to fill out an application. Vendors can find the application here. Applications are due by June 1, 2022. Vendors will be notified of their acceptance by June 15, 2022.
“Great Meadow is truly a special place in the heart of Northern Virginia horse country,” said David O’Connor, the co-organizer of the event. “We are especially excited to broaden the reach of this event to be more inclusive of our community members, businesses, and organizations who share our love of open space, animal well-being, and the Piedmont.”
MARSGMI will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and maintain communication with the Great Meadow Foundation, state and local health officials and the USEF and FEI.
