Interested Vendor Information

Interested vendors should download appropriate checklist, then download listed information and forms. Vendors from previous year will be given first invitation, then we typically accept vendors on a first contact basis, however we reserve the right to negotiate offering of menu items and wares to diversify offering and help make our event successful for each vendor. We have a number of long-term vendors who have been successful 10 to 20 years and we strive to make it successful for all. Questions should be directed to Allen Sultemeier at 505-918-2463.
