Applications for our 2020 event, to be held October 10-11, 2020, are now available below. We accept vendors selling anything garlic or food related, or hand-made crafts. If your setup does not meet this criteria and you feel you would still be a good fit for our show, please email email@example.com for review. Individual setups are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Please note that this year’s festival hours will be 9-5. Also please note a minor change in our insurance requirements for this year- instead of naming “CT Garlic & Harvest Festival” as additional insured as we have requested in the past, we are now asking instead that you name our parent company, “Avid Concessions LLC” as additional insured, as well as “Bethlehem Fair Society”. Please reference page 2 of the vendor application. Any insurance certificates submitted naming “CT Garlic & Harvest Festival” as additional insured will have to be revised to “Avid Concessions LLC.” If you do not have your own insurance, we will once again offer the option to purchase insurance through us for an additional fee.
Attention Jewelry Vendors: If you were a jewelry vendor in 2019 and would like to return in 2020, please be sure to get your application in by the end of February to guarantee your spot. We will once again be capping off jewelry vendors at 12. Beginning March 1st, we will accept jewelry applications from all jewelry vendors until we are sold out of all jewelry spaces. If you were not a jewelry vendor in 2019, please wait until at least March 1st to send in your application. Any applications from new jewelry vendors received in February will be returned.
Attention Food Concessionaires: New food concessionaires must first submit a proposed menu to firstname.lastname@example.org and receive approval before sending in an application. New food concessionaires are chosen based on their ability to best conform to our garlic theme. Returning food concessionaires will have until July 1st to submit their 2020 application to be guaranteed their spot back. After July 1st, all remaining food court spaces will be rented on a first-come, first-served basis as long as space permits and there are no menu duplications.
