Vendor Application

It is not necessary to obtain a Jersey County Health Department for your participation in the vendor section of this event. We are not limiting the number of vendors available for the festival. All vendors are welcome to be at the event and will be assigned a spot when registration is paid. We are asking all vendors to refrain from selling soda and water, those will be available at the Beverage Tent and proceeds will go back to the festival itself. We will require a menu when registering so that we know what you will be serving (to notify the general public) and reduce the risk of vendors selling the same items. We will make it our best effort to reduce the duplication of food between vendors, but this serves as notice that it is a possibility of duplication. You are expected to serve food on Friday, May 31st and Saturday, June 1st when you sign up for the spot.
