We love our vendors, and we always welcome new vendors! If you are interested in being a vendor at the 2018 Fair, submit a vendor application online from this page below (or pick up a paper application at the Fairgrounds Office).

New vendor applications are accepted until all spaces are filled.  New vendors will only be notified should a space become available.
