Want to reach fermentation enthusiasts and other foodies with your products? Join us as a vendor for the festival! We’re already thinking about our 2020 festival next Fall. If you’re interested in being a vendor let us know 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.

General information

Date and location information will be provided the Spring of 2020, with an expected festival date sometime in October 2020. Attendance at the festival is free, although there will be a fee for people to attend workshops. The inaugural 2019 festival had around 500 attendees (on a rainy day), and we’re expecting higher numbers in 2020.

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.

The details

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. 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!
