read the MSD Booth/Vendor FAQs

The 2018 Booth Application Process:
IMPORTANT: In order to be considered for a Booth Space, we ask that you submit a completed Application accompanied by two checks (booth fee, clean up deposit), pictures, sketches and Certificate of Insurance/request for crafters/start up business' Special Insurance Policy.

FOOD: If you are preparing/selling/sampling any foods or beverages, access the 2018 Letter, Application and other information here.

GENERAL: All others, access the 2018 Letter & Application here.

CATEGORIES THAT ARE CLOSED: In order to offer an eclectic mix of participants, categories will close so as not to overwhelm festival attendees with any one product or business:
LuLaRoe (2/26)
Pleasant Street Food (cooking, selling) (2/28)

PLEASE NOTE: Only approved Vendors are permitted to sell/sample products and distribute information (in their Booth area) on Market Square Day.

Those individuals 'soliciting' information and products (sampling, handing out flyers, political campaigns, etc.) without the MSD Vendor Permit for an approved Booth Space will be asked to leave the event footprint out of respect for those who have complied with the application/permitting  process.

All MSD performances (music, dance, etc.) are scheduled at our two stages - please respect our plan and refrain from setting up in other areas within the event footprint (refer to the Event Map). Only contracted artists and those with Booth Spaces can perform during MSD.

ANOTHER REMINDER: All sidewalks in the Festival footprint must remain open/clear for pedestrian access. This relates to all MSD Vendors and Downtown Businesses - racks, tents, tables, power cords, supplies cannot be on the sidewalk.
