In normal years, we accept registration requests for guaranteed space at the festival from returning vendors until February 15th. Everything was delayed this year, but we have now completed our layout for reserved booths and are happy to report that most of the vendors who were planning to participate in 2020 will return in 2021. Please be aware that the festival will be limited in scope this year, and that vendor booth locations will shift in order to comply with state and local pandemic requirements.
We are always glad to be able to introduce new artists and producers to the event and we are excited about the new vendors who have already accepted our recent invitation. We maintain a waiting list of prospective vendors, and we ask that individuals wishing to become vendors either contact us via email with information about the products they offer or download and complete the 2021 Prospective Vendor Form. We ask that prospective vendors not send any payment until they are notified that they can be accommodated. To provide variety for our visitors and to promote sales for our vendors, we evaluate the products represented by prospective vendors and reach out to people accordingly. We give priority to people with unusual and high-quality products, to people who raise their own animals and are willing to showcase their animals, and to people from Central NY. We are also interested in a small number of vendors with non-fiber products that might be of interest to our visitors, such as hand-woven baskets or quilts.
Please do not hesitate to contact Pam with any questions about the forms or the process. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
