Vendors are always welcome.

The Mountain Heritage Festival is always looking for vendors of handmade craft and art. If you are an artisan who would like to be a part of our festival, please download an application and consider participating. We value our vendors. We provide a hospitality room for vendors stocked with snacks and easy access to public rest rooms (not portajohns), and we have volunteers who will watch your booth while you take a break. We can always extend the festival down the street and take extra craft vendors. However, booth space is limited in the food court. Don't hesitate if you are a food vender.
