Folklife Fair Vendor

All spaces are currently filled. However, we do keep a Wait List and typically have a few vendors who must cancel. Please contact us to be placed on this list. For more details, please click Vendor Information below.

We do have room for vendors at our Sheepdog Trials. Many vendors prefer Trials as it lasts three days with a relaxed atmosphere….more time to spend with customers! The Trials attracts many patrons who may not attend other Festival events. If you are a new vendor, you might consider spending your first year at Trials.

For New Vendors interested in participating in future Folklife Fairs, details and applications are posted on our website mid-January. We traditionally fill all 100, 10’x10’ spaces by mid-March. The Fair, with attendance of 7,000 people, has become one of the premier events of its kind with 80% of vendors returning annually.

We accept all qualified vendors solely on a first-come basis which is based on date of completed application, submission of bio, images and payment, regardless of previous participation. We prefer new vendors ask to be on our email list for Information and Application in January.

If you have additional questions after review of the Details & Application, please contact Sheila Kelley, Program Director, at
