Want to reach fermentation enthusiasts and other foodies with your products? Join us as a vendor for the festival! We’re looking for 24 vendors for our Fall 2019 festival. Space is limited, so if you’re interested in being a vendor let us know as soon as possible by filling out our Google form! Applications will be reviewed and you will receive a confirmation email from us within a week. Registration is $50; this fee covers permits, advertising, and the facility.
The festival is scheduled for Sunday, October 13, 2019! The event will run from 1 – 5pm at the Chatham Hill Winery (8245 Chapel Hill Rd, Cary, NC 27513). Attendance at the festival is free, although there will be a fee for people to attend workshops. Although we’re planning for 500-750 attendees, we very well may have higher attendance, possibly as many as 2,000 attendees (this occurred at first festivals in Austin, Texas and Albuquerque, NM).
Types of vendors
This is a fermentation festival, so of course we’re looking for businesses that sell fermented food or drink, fermentation-related products, or services! If you sell food or drink, please provide samples during the festival. Note that any samples must be dispensed by the business that makes the food or drink.
Vendors need to supply a 10′ x 10′ pop-up tent, 6-foot table, and any chairs they want. The vendor area includes a maximum of 24 outside booths on a paved parking lot. We do ask each vendor to provide signage. All vendors must be set up by 12 noon on October 13 and remain set up until 5pm. The festival runs rain or shine. In the case of catastrophic weather, the festival will be rescheduled for the Spring.
We’re asking vendors to announce the festival through posts on your social media accounts (i.e., Facebook and Instagram). We will provide you with the content for several posts to make it easy for you!
