Become a Vendor
Each year Northwest Folklife accepts applications for Food, Craft, Uncommon Market and Sidewalk vendors. The application process typically begins in November and ends in March. Deadlines for applications will vary each year, but applications for each vendor category typically remain open for 4-6 weeks. Applications will usually follow the below schedule:
Food Vendors: Applications are now closed for the 2018 Festival
Craft Vendors: Applications are now closed for the 2018 Festival
The Uncommon Market: Applications are now open and available here.
Deadline for applying is February 13th, 2018.
Sidewalk Vendors: Applications are now open and available here.
Deadline for applying is March 15th, 2018.
A common question we receive is the difference between Craft Vendors and Uncommon Market Vendors. Craft vendors sell handmade items that they make themselves, while Uncommon Market vendors sell items that are made by others or made by themselves as well as others. Uncommon Market vendors typically sell imported goods, prepackaged food or other specialty items. If you are unsure which category you should apply to, please contact Katie McColgan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
