Vendor Application

Welcome Vendors!

We would like to invite you to attend the 13th annual Connecticut Garlic & Harvest Festival at the Bethlehem Fairgrounds on October 7-8, 2017.  Applications for this year’s fair are now available below.  We rent spaces to vendors selling anything garlic or food related, or hand-made crafts.  If your setup does not meet this criteria, please email for approval first before sending in your application.  Each setup is reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Attention Food Concessionaires:  New food concessionaires must first submit a proposed menu to and receive approval before sending in an application.  New food concessionaires are chosen based on their ability to conform to our garlic theme, and menu duplications are not permitted.  Please check our “vendor list” to see what items we already have.  Returning food concessionaires will have until July 1st to submit their 2017 application to be guaranteed their spot back.  After July 1st, all remaining food court spaces will be rented to those vendors that we feel best fit our “garlic” theme.
Attention Jewelry Vendors:  We allow 12 jewelry vendors at our fair.  During the month of February, we will only be accepting jewelry applications from those jewelry vendors that were present at our 2016 event.  Beginning March 1st, we will be accepting applications from any hand-made jewelry vendors until all 12 jewelry spaces are rented.  Jewelry applications received from new jewelry vendors during the month of February will be returned.  In summary, we will only be holding spaces for returning jewelry vendors during the month of February.
