Over the course of three weeks in the heart of Salem MA. Creative Collective managed almost 150 vendors and over 400 vendor spaces as part of the annual Haunted Happenings month long festival. During the course of the market Creative Collective worked with the City of Salem, Salem Police and Fire, Vendors, Local Businesses and creative organizations to not only manage the fair but to introduce an all new Night Market and world based programming in partnership with one of our member Cojuelos Productions.

The ability to utilize many creative tools, skills and resources to address many challenges that the city had expressed they had run into in the past was the highlight of this project. From utilizing street performers to assist in strategic wayfinding and using performers to prevent safety challenges, to activating spaces and creating programming that returned local consumers to the Downtown.
