We are offering an “online marketplace” directory of vendors again this year.

At the event, we will have QR codes everywhere so event goers can quickly link to the directory from their phone.

Private business vendors selling goods or services, or providing information.
Nonprofit vendors selling goods or services, or providing information.
Snack vendors are selling one item such as popcorn booth, pretzel boots etc. This definition also applies you are selling prepackaged food and/or food not requiring health department certificate. If you are selling hot/prepared food, you need a food vendor registration and Health Department inspection, see below.
Virginia State Law requires that food vendors providing food during temporary events have a current temporary food permit and post it where readily observable. Those who have not obtained this temporary food permit should contact the Rockbridge-Buena Vista-Lexington Health Department (540-463-3185, ext. 4) for food permit information.
We love demonstrations! If you have a skill or art/craft process you would like to demonstrate, may have your registration fee reduced or waived. Please fill out the exhibitor application, found here, and note that you are offering demonstrations (in addition to sales).
