Apply to be a Food Vendor

From the DIY Homesteader Festival team…

We are head over heels for local and regenerative food! Part of our mission is to extend a consciousness for our earth and support for our local farmers and producers into all reaches of the festival. That means doing our best to connect our fest-goers with restaurants and companies that provide nourishing foods with a focus on local and regenerative ingredients – and zero-waste packaging – where possible. Thanks for applying!

Food service needs to be open by 8am. People will start arriving then, and workshops do not start immediately. The morning is a prime time, and also we want to be fair to other vendors — and to shoppers —and have a fully set up food area when the fest starts.Vendors are expected to remain for the entire day or weekend. Early tear-down is not permitted.

No shows will not receive a refund. 


Single-day: $120

Two days: $180
