Who is eligible to be a vendor? 

Applicants must be year-round and/or seasonal operations with proven show/festival experience. Applicants must have all necessary licenses and insurance. Vendors assume full legal responsibility for participation.


 

When and how are vendors selected?

All applications will be reviewed and accepted on the 20th of the month with the cut-off being May 20th. A waiting list will be created for those vendors/merchants not chosen due to their category being full.

Wait-listed 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 submission is not a guaranteed acceptance to the festival.  Special preference will be given to vendors/merchants based on the following:

-A vendor has a unique item not provided by other vendors.

All decisions of the committee will be final.
