Trader's Alley

See What’s In-Store

We work hard to ensure that the Bay City Fireworks Festival has something for everyone. Sure, you come for the fireworks, but what are you going to do to pass the time during the day? In between enjoying the carnival or other entertainment events, visit this year’s vendors at the Trader’s Alley Marketplace to see what they have in-store for you .

Located on the west side (Veterans Park), you can find a variety of wares from area vendors, including:
  • Candles
  • Sunglasses
  • Jewelry
  • T-Shirts
  • Handcrafted Item
  • And Much More!
