PA Bacon Fest Vendor Applications
Located in historic Easton, PA, the PA Bacon Fest has grown into one of the region’s most popular events. With 150+ vendors, 20+ musical acts, and several stages, the two-day festival attracts more than 80,000 attendees. In 2014 PA Bacon Fest was named one of the TOP 300 Festivals in the world by FEST300.com!! And locally, voted Best Culinary Event in Lehigh Valley Style magazine’s Best of the Lehigh Valley contest and a Townie Award for best special event in the state by Pennsylvania Downtown Center. The Fest is held Rain or Shine!
We are reducing the number of some categories of vendors in 2018. Vendors will be chosen based on many factors including but not limited to; business location, number of years with the festival, quality and uniqueness of product and booth appearance.
We strive to distribute similar products throughout the festival.
Applications for new vendors will be opened in the fall of 2018.
All participants are required to provide proof of insurance (minimum $1,000,000 per occurrence), naming the following TWO entities as additional insured as well as providing proof of Worker’s Compensation Insurance if applicable.
