Applications will be accepted beginning January 1, 2019 for Vendor Booth Spaces for the 2019 Festival. Space for vendor booths is limited, so vendors are encouraged to get their applications in early.
Each year thousands of visitors visit Stilwell for the annual Strawberry Festival. With attractions at each end of Division, visitors flow through the vendor booths from one end to the other.
Entertainment is scheduled on the Kiwanis Stage Friday evening, 4:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
Vendors may want to be set up and open for business at that time.
A permit is required for all vendors at the festival. Vendors arranging for space on private property must additionally purchase a vendor permit. Vendors purchasing booth space from Kiwanis do not have an additional permit fee, because it is included in the price of the booth space. Either way, the festival permit covers from 6:00 PM Friday, the day before the festival, until 6:00 PM festival day. A separate permit must be displayed on each booth, stand, or attraction. Set up may begin as early as 5:00 PM Friday, the day before the festival.
Booth sites are reserved on a first come, first serve basis beginning Jan. 1, 2019. Various price levels are available for you to choose from. The more expensive spaces are those most in demand because of their proximity to the parade route and the Kiwanis Stage.
