Now accepting applications for event vendors

Calling all artisans, makers, and food truck owners! We organize several events every year with space for vendors.  Space is limited – Apply today and we’ll be in touch!

April Foods Day Rodeo Vendor Application

We invite artisans, crafters, and makers of handmade items to apply for our upcoming April Foods’ Day  food truck rodeo! Space is limited and vendor applications are selected to ensure a diverse mix of artisan items.

ALL vendors are required to provide a Tax ID from the NC Department of Revenue with their application.  This is legally required and we cannot make any exceptions.

Food Trucks should NOT use this form – spaces for food-based businesses are by invitation only at this time.

Start Here
As a vendor at a Downtown Garner event, you must understand and agree to the following:

  • Prepay your fee via Paypal or check by the deadline indicated on your invoice
  • Failure to pay promptly will result in forfeiting your spot
  • Secure all necessary business documentation, including but not limited to, a Tax ID from the NC Department of Revenue and any certifications for food preparations
  • Provide your own tent, tables, and chairs – nothing will be provided other than a 10×10 space
  • Provide your own power source, if needed – electricity is not available at the market sites
  • Arrive and be completely set up by 11:45am
  • Stay for the duration of the event – we cannot allow early departures due to public safety
  • Help promote the markets via Facebook and Instagram
