Is there a vendor program at the Festival?
Yes! We have both Food and Craft vendors. Vendor locations are in an area where Vendors will be able to enjoy the musical performances. Be sure to read this Vendor FAQ prior to applying.
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 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. Our audience appreciates many diverse vendors from clothing, jewelry, and vendors that are artisan and/or unique in nature (e.g., custom musical instrument luthiers, makers of acoustic instruments, sellers of music-related accessories, and so forth). Those vendors that are selling commercially bagged food 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). Vendors with adult or drug paraphernalia of any kind whether legal or not, are not permitted.
Food Vendors: Our attendees appreciate delicious foods from all ethnicity. 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 4-5 minutes do not sell well in volume and are a deterrent to the vendor 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 a 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 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: At this time, no power is available for Craft Vendors & generators are not allowed in the Craft Vendor area. However, there are several outlets available around the site should you need to charge a cell phone, etc.
For Food Vendors: There is limited power on site. Generators, if needed are allowed during vending hours. 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.
Is there a Pet Policy?
Yes. See our policy on pets here: Policies and Guidelines Our pet policy is strictly enforced. Pets are not allowed in the vendor areas.
