If you have a "folky" art or craft you'd like to showcase at the festival, we welcome you to be a vendor. OR if you have some amazing food to feed our hungry selves, we'd love to have you too. Food vendors, keep in mind that we are dancing and active until about midnight, so we'd encourage you to stay open late.
