Is there a vendor program at the Festival?
Yes! We have both Food and Craft vendors. Applications to vend may be found under “Application Forms” on our Home Page or click Here: Click Here to apply.
What is the expected attendance for the festival?
Festival attendance is determined by many factors for which we have no control. However, based on feedback, previous festival attendance and the positive feedback we expect 1,000 as the approximate daily attendance.
What types of Vendors are you looking for?
Craft Vendors: We have no specific criteria for the types of craft vendors. Those vendors that are selling commercially bagged products for which no health permit is required will be included in the Craft Vendor category (e.g., bagged caramel corn, Jelly Bellies, and so forth). Additionally, our audience appreciates many diverse types of vendors from clothing, jewelry and vendors that are artisan in nature (e.g., custom musical instrument luthiers, makers of acoustic instrument, sellers of music related accessories and so forth). Vendors with adult or drug paraphernalia of any kind are not permitted.
Food Vendors: Our attendees appreciate delicious foods from all ethnicities. Priority will be given to those food vendors that serve and make food from fresh ingredients on-site. IMPORTANT: We have found that Food Cook-to-Order times exceeding 4 minutes do not sell well in volume and is a deterrent for future purchases.
How will Vendors be selected?
Interested Vendors need to submit the Vendor application to be considered. Applications are reviewed by the Vendor Manager and once a decision has been made, Vendors are notified via email with notification of acceptance or regrets. Once a vendor’s application has been accepted, that vendor will receive notification to complete and sign the final agreements and submit the appropriate insurance certificates along with the applicable vendor fee. Due to the limited number of vendor spaces available, we anticipate that we may not be able to accommodate all vendor applicants. Therefore, we urge vendors to get their applications in ASAP. Deadline for all Vendor applications is May 30th. However, we urge you to apply as early as possible as all applications are reviewed weekly and space is limited, especially for Food Vendors.
Is Power available for Vendors?
For Craft Vendors: Due to the lack of power on-site, no power is available for Craft Vendors & generators are not allowed in the Craft Vendor area.
For Food Vendors: Due to the lack of power on site, Food Vendors must provide their own power. Generators are allowed. Special attention is given to volume (Noise) levels to ensure: 1) You’re vending neighbor and customers are not negatively impacted; and 2) Bands/Audiences are not distracted due to generator noise. We encourage cooking and refrigeration with Propane.
How many Vendors are you looking to have on-site during the festival?
Craft Vendors: We have allocated space for approximately 20-25 vendors.
Food Vendors: We have allocated space for a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 10.
What are the Vendor space sizes?
Vendor Space assignment is determined by the Vendor Manager and Executive Committee. Vendors are permitted to vend in their specific assigned spaces only. Vendor Director is the sole arbiter of those spaces.
Craft Vendors: 10’x10’ and 10’x20’ and 20’x20’.
Food Vendors: Vendors will be assigned a spot that will accommodate a reasonable area for each vendor. It’s never been an issue. However, space for seating etc. will be determined by the festival for use by all.
