The Powell Festival is the City’s signature event of the year. This two-day summer experience stands out in delivering family-friendly entertainment, delicious food and dazzling fireworks.

2017 Festival Marketplace Application | Deadline: April 21, 2017

Who is eligible to be a merchandise and/or vendor? 

This event is sponsored by generous sponsorships and donations from local businesses and community members.

Applicants must have all necessary licenses and insurance and must be a year-round and/or seasonal operation with proven Festival experience. Vendors take all full legal responsibility for participation.

Where/How do I Apply?

Visit here for the Marketplace application. Complete applications must be received by April 21, 2017. ALL vendors must send samples and/or photographs that may not be returned. A photo is considered an applicable form of sample but will not be considered in the same manner as a sample to show the Powell Festival Committee the quality/type of merchandise you are presenting for sale. Furthermore, websites are applicable forms of demonstrating samples but will not serve as a substitute for an actual sample. A photo of your booth at another event is required for ALL vendors. Please submit photos electronically through your application. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.

When/How are Vendors/Merchants Selected?

All applications will be reviewed and participants will be selected on or before May 1, 2017 and participants will be contacted at this time. Only unique product lines will be selected as spots for vending are limited. A waiting list will be created for those vendors/merchants not chosen.

Wait list vendors may be added if other vendors/merchants do not meet payment deadlines or if space opens up in other areas of the park. Application submittal is not a guaranteed acceptance to the Powell Festival. Special preference will be given to vendors/merchants based on the following: a vendor has a previous and strong track record with the Powell Festival; a vendor has a business located in Powell; and a vendor has a unique item not provided by other vendors.

All decisions of the Powell Festival Committee will be final. 

When will I receive my acceptance of my application?

Vendors/merchants will be selected on or before May 1, 2017 and will be contacted via email. After May 1, 2017, if your application has not been accepted you will receive a decline letter via email.
