Be Part of the Lineup

It wouldn’t be Old Settler’s without our vendors. Every year, we put as much thought and planning into our vendor selection as we do for our festival lineup. We strive to get the mix exactly right, to help establish that free-spirited, artistic, eco-friendly sense of community our attendees love.

​We are always looking to welcome new vendors into the Old Settler’s family. But because they are so important in creating the right vibe, we have to choose with care.

Still, our vendors find it’s worth it to work with us. You’ll reach a large audience with disposable income-over half of our attendees earn more than $75,000 per year. Festival-goers are educated, tech-savvy, creative, and environmentally aware-and they are loyal to companies that support the festival.

What We Look for in Our Vendors

Products. Our attendees love high-quality, handmade, and local products. We are not local-only or handmade-only, however. If your company has an eco-friendly philosophy, so much the better.

Food. We only allow the sale of alcohol, iced tea, soda, and bottled water through the festival itself. But we rely on our vendors to provide a diverse menu of other high-quality food and beverage options. Those who include vegetarian fare will be given priority.

Presentation. The atmosphere is so important that we’re selective about vendor booth presentation. We’re looking for companies that project an image that’s unique, creative, clever, maybe a little off-beat and quirky-but also high-end. We aren’t looking for a “carnival” or “fairground” vibe.

Attitude. If your staff is made up of professional, friendly individuals who are passionate roots-music lovers themselves, that’s the ideal situation. Your staff will have fun at the festival, and it will show.

Experience. We prefer vendors who have done this kind of thing before. If this is your first time and you’re a great fit for us, we may take you on anyway. But we do ask that you read the guidelines carefully and come prepared.
