Vending Area: Vending is outdoors on the acreage of lawn which is adjacent to the main building of the Blackthorne Resort. This building houses the large dining room where festival attendees take their meals; beneath the dining room is a large pub which is a venue for performances by bands, as well as informal socializing during the festival.

Vendors should bring their own tents. Most vendors use 10×10 or 10×12 tents, but some have larger tents. There is no size limitation on tents, since there is plenty of space for set-up. Standard vending fee $140

Large Tent Option: The Blackthorne Resort will set up a 20 x 40 tent for vendors without their own tent, with spaces limited to 10×10 within the tent. The vending fee will be $165 for those using space in the large tent.

Vendors can drive right to their locations, although they should move vehicles to a parking lot after unloading.
We do not provide electricity. Alll spaces are outdoors. Placement is first-come, first-served.
