Food and Merchant Vendor Application
We are pleased to extend an open invitation to vendors to share at YogaFest 2017. Any number of food trucks and merchant booths will be considered, so that we might have a diverse array of earth-friendly and spiritually-conscious products and services, as well as a few options for healthy vegetarian cuisine.
It is unlikely that as a YogaFest vendor you will get rich during your extended weekend at the festival, but with an anticipated 500-600 like-minded yogis gathering on site it is a wonderful opportunity to generate modest revenue while reaching a conscious audience, assisting to create a communal atmosphere, and experiencing firsthand - from your front row seat - the wonderfully serene and spiritually authentic festival that is YogaFest.
We are in the process of crafting a vendor agreement for YogaFest 2017 - which all participating vendors will need to sign prior to the event - but the nuts and bolts of it are:
- Merchant vendor permits cost $75 - or roughly half the price of a YogaFest ticket - and include festival entry, access and camping for a lead individual who will be running the merchant booth. A second person who is assisting may accompany for a $45 fee (which again includes entry, camping, and full festival access).
- Food vendor permits cost $300, and include full access all-weekend passes, with camping, for four workers.
- Approved vendors will have space reserved for the duration of the festival. This includes a 10'x10' space for merchants, or adequate space for your food truck, as determined on a case-by-case basis. Please note that all vendors must be self-sufficient and bring everything they will need - including tent, tables, chairs, etc. - and will be responsible for set-up and takedown.
- Vendors keep all the money they bring in.
We encourage all interested parties to fill out an application form below, as soon as possible, so that we are best able to organize and offer a diverse array of food, crafts, goods, and/or information about organizations and services in line with YogaFest values. Specifically we are looking for food trucks which offer hearty full meal options (vegetarian only, please); and local vendors selling artwork, craft items, clothing, natural health and beauty products, organic fruits and vegetables, and other earth-friendly products conducive to a healthy yogic lifestyle.
At YogaFest we believe in building long-term relationships that are mutually respectful and mutually beneficial, and value the role vendors fulfill in bringing diversity, sustenance, and happiness to the YogaFest experience. This is why we offer vendor permits at an extremely affordable rate, and do not take a cut of the profits.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us by filling out the form on the right, or by calling YogaFest headquarters at Song of the Morning Yoga retreat: (989) 983-4107.
