FESTIVAL: AUGUST 16-18, 2019 MUSIC CAMP: AUGUST 12-16, 2019
Northern Lights Bluegrass has a unique opportunity for special vendors that other festivals just cannot match. Do you specialize in music-related goods focused on a unique buyer? Custom products that are music-focused are encouraged.
Our music festival strives to be an environment that attracts fans of music and those interested in music culture and phenomena.
As a Vendor with music interests, you will be encouraged to have your vendor booth operational for 6 PM Friday, August 16, 2019. Our musical vendors will be housed in a beautiful roomy facility named The Jack Millikin Centre, which is secured during main stage down time. Our vendors are normally open during main stage running hours.
Northern Lights strives to keep our festival local and encourage local food vendors to submit an email if they wish to be a vendor at one of our several on-site festival locations.
As a food vendor, we will encourage you to be ready to start serving food on Friday, August 16, 2019, at noon to our Camp participants that are staying for the Festival and may not have provisions. Gates open at noon and festival attendees are on the grounds.
Northern Lights is pleased to announce that we will accept considerations for non music and non food vendors in 2019! We encourage all vendors to apply early as we will not allow more than 1 vendor offering the same products.
