Location
Mountain Day 2021 will take place in downtown Buena Vista on Magnolia Avenue between 20th and 22nd Streets. There are large parking areas within close proximity to the event, offering a convenient location for vendors and customers to access vehicles. 
 
Types of goods to be sold
Our focus is on arts, crafts, music, and folkways. We encourage vendors to sell primarily handmade items. The festival also includes informational and nonprofit booths.
Online Marketplace
We are offering an “online marketplace” directory of vendors again this year. All vendors should provide website and social media account information in their application and they will be listed and linked on www.mountainday.org. Additionally, vendors not attending the actual festival can still advertise here by submitting an application. At the event, we will have QR codes everywhere so festival goers can quickly link to the directory from their phone.

Demonstrations: We love demonstrations! If you have an skill or art/craft process you would like to share, but do not wish to sell any items, you may set up a booth for free. Please fill out the exhibitor application, found here, and note that you are offering demonstrations only.

Space: Space size is 10x10 on the street. Like 2020, there will be some space between each vendor stall.  You may bring a canopy 10x12 or smaller. All vendors, demonstrators, and entertainers must park off of Magnolia Avenue.  If you need handicapped parking, please let us know. All vendors are responsible for setting up their own booths, tents, displays, etc.  All vendors are responsible for providing their own tables, chairs, canopies, displays, money for change and other supplies as needed.  You might also consider bringing your own lunch and other refreshments.

Covid-19 Precautions:

  • Please arrange your products for a “low-touch” experience if possible to limit multiple people touching the same objects, and arrange your tables to create safe distance between you and other festivalgoers. We recognize this can be difficult with crafts!

  • Please wear a face mask if you are able. We plan to have a limited quantity of disposable face masks available for attendees.

  • We will have hand sanitizer available at multiple locations around the festival. You are welcome to bring your own for your table as well

Electricity:  Electricity is not available. Please bring your own power source, if needed.
