Please observe fee schedules and deadlines when submitting your application! Register by January 31 to take advantage of our early-bird rates. If you have any questions along the way please contact us! We will be in touch as soon as we receive your information and will keep you informed about the status of your application.
Exhibitor registration is not confirmed until approved by the Valley Vegfest Registration Committee. Due to limited space, we reserve the right to allocate space as needed among the various categories of exhibitors.
The basic exhibit space is an 8 foot table with two chairs. If you have a booth or some other special set-up, please contact us with your space requirements before submitting an application. An additional table or equivalent floor space is available for an added fee.
Power is available for a limited number of exhibitors, so make sure to request it if needed. Heating of food may be done using crock pots, hot plates, or small convection ovens. No propane or other gas stoves, or microwave ovens are allowed.
All exhibitors serving prepared food, selling packaged food, or offering food samples must have a Northampton Temporary Event Food Service Permit when checking in the day of the event. An inspection must take place prior to the event opening to the pubic, so please make sure to be all set-up and ready before 10:00.
If you have any permit questions, please call the Northampton Health Department at 413 587-1214. Information and an application form are available at http://www.northamptonma.gov/704/Food-Permits-Fees
Prepared food vendors should keep in mind that attendees will be interested in trying a variety off food that day, so offering food in smaller, moderately-priced portions is likely to result in more sales. Another option would be to offer a large or small of an item where practical.
