Vendors

MarketFest takes up three city blocks and we have room for 100 vendors.  All 2017 MarketFest vendors will receive an invitation through email by early March of 2018. Returning vendors may pre-register by paying in full by April 30th. After April 30th, all remaining open MarketFest vendors spots will be offered on a first come, first served basis to the general public. 

Both the July 27 and August 24 Marketfest event are now all sold out of open vendor spots. 

Due to having a large vendor wait list already for both of the 2018 MarketFest events no more vendors will be added to this years vendor wait lists.
 

Registration is not complete until the spot is paid for. There will be no refunds for cancellations.  Please visit our vendor information page for more details.
