Food & Farm Festival Vendor Application

Attendees will enjoy a free outdoor festival on the front lawn of Living History Farms. Interested in presenting your business to event attendees? Vendors are encouraged to bring information and samples, display products, or sell merchandise for attendees related to Iowa, the Midwest, food and/or farming. This is a family-friendly event, so please no selling or promotion of illegal or controversial products or services. Living History Farms reserves the right to reject any vendor who we believe does not contribute to the Food & Farm Festival theme or who does not meet the vendor requirements.

Vendor booths will be 10’x10′, with the exception of food trucks. No water, electrical, or wifi is available on the Front Lawn Festival area.
