Want to be a vendor at the 2018 Old Fashioned July 4th Festival?
Artists, Crafters, Food Vendors, Civic Organizations & Community Agencies
Join the fun and serve your community by becoming a vendor at the 2018 Old Fashioned July 4th Festival. A tradition since the 1930s, this festival continues to offer our community the largest one-day family event in Bend. Over 10,000 people come from Oregon and beyond for the Pet Parade preceding the Festival and then head to Drake Park to participate in the festivities, food, live music, games and shopping at over a hundred craft and community booths. Booth spaces (15′ X 15′) are available for artisans/crafters, nonprofits (with or without sales) and commercial business. View the Vendor Booth Map (PDF) to see how the festival is laid out and where your type of booth could be located. We look forward to seeing you in 2018!
