2020 Vendor Application
We are currently seeking vendors for the 2018 Vermont Wine & Harvest Festival. This year’s Festival takes place just one day, October 3rd and is bookended by weekend events: Friday the 2nd, Wine Stroll - Soup Contest in Wilmington; Saturday the 3rd, the Wine and Harvest Festival at Mount Snow; and Sunday the 4th, the Vermont Wildlife Festival at Mount Snow. Wine events will once again take place throughout the Deerfield Valley over the weekend. The Festival was created to be a destination event and is promoted and packaged to late summer and fall travelers, day trippers, and Vermonters. Deerfield Valley is a major tourist destination in the summer and fall.
The Wine & Harvest Festival the 3rd celebrates the products, food, art, distilleries, and wineries of Vermont from 10:00AM to 5:00PM under gorgeous tents at the Mount Snow Resort in West Dover. Last year we had over 3,750 guests and with our increased marketing expect over 5,000 guests this year. This is another fantastic opportunity for artisans from across Vermont to come together to showcase their crafts. In 2019, there were over 80 Vermont vendors made up of 21 Vermont wineries and distilleries including award-winning Shelburne Vineyards, North Branch Vineyards, Whistle Pig Distillers, Caledonia Spirits & as well as cooks, crafters, musicians and artists.
Vendor fees have changed from previous years. Past out-of-state vendors may apply early this year with an in-state booth rate. As in past years, we will restrict the number of vendors selling similar products to just four with preference given to past vendors. Deadlines this year are July 3, 2020 for all application materials.
We hope you will consider participating in this great Festival. Please feel free to contact me at any time to further discuss being a vendor and again, thank you in advance for your consideration.
