Each year, Festival Productions reviews all applications regardless of whether the vendor is a returning artist, commercial enterprise, non-profit organization, food vendor, or a first time applicant in any of these categories. Event sponsors are not required to have their information reviewed as these organizations have been screened by the hosting organization. 

In order to have your show application processed for any Festival Productions show, you must select this "event" by checking the box to the left of the application event selection page the first time you apply for an event. Be sure that the number of spaces requested is set to "1", because you only need to pay one application processing fee. The $25. application processing fee will automatically be added to your total space fee charges for the events you signed up for. This is a one time annual charge. If you wish to apply for other events at a later time in 2024, you will not be charged the application processing fee.

Do not apply for this application processing fee without applying for at least one event. You will not be charged the application processing fee until you are accepted into at least one show.
