Thousands of visitors from around the region attend this impressive display. The festival includes two days of arts, crafts, food vending, and live musical entertainment on an outdoor stage. Vendor set up (for 2017) is on
Thursday, June 29 from 9am-8pm and vendor hours of operation are from 10am-9:45pm (all lights must be out by 9:45pm before the laser light show begins) on
Friday and Saturday, June 30 and July 1. Tear down must be complete by noon on July
2. Food vendors are required to pay an additional 10% of their gross festival earnings as well as their booth space expense. These monies are due to the Chamber of Commerce before leaving the festival. There are limited spaces available for self-contained RVs. Upon arrival check with officials for your space assignment. Electricity is limited and cannot be used for personal RV use.
There are no guns, knives, alcohol or any offensive items allowed. No dogs are allowed on the federally-owned park where Festival of America is held. You'll need to bring your own UL-approved 3-pronged 50-100 foot electrical cord. You must apply and be accepted to vend at these events. Applicants will be reviewed by our Festival Committee prior to acceptance to ensure they meet our specifications. If accepted, you will be notified and your payment will be deposited. If you are not accepted, your payment will be returned to you. Make sure you include a photo of your booth, items and list of what you plan to sell. There is no early opening for this event.
