Fall Fest Vendor Information

Fall Fest 2024

Fall Fest is a one-day event that brings 7,500-10,000 visitors into the park. This year’s event is on Saturday, September 21, 2024, with a rain date of Sunday, September 22. Our event is billed as a regional craft festival; vendors are expected to be selling items that are hand-made or home-grown, not mass produced. Full criteria and expectations are contained in the vendor guidelines which are linked below.

Vendors that participated in 2023 were emailed 2024 registration forms on February 1st. Please check your spam/junk box if you do not see the email. If you still do not see it please contact Sam at sam@chesterbowl.org or 218-724-9832. Returning vendors had until May 1st to submit their full paperwork and payment by cash or check to reserve their same spot if desired. Requests for the same spot will be honored after this date to the best of our ability if your spot has not already been re-assigned to a new vendor. Returning vendors can also request a new spot; your location would not be assigned until after May 1 to allow all returning vendors to re-claim their space.

There are three types of registration, each with its own registration form- Craft vendors, Informational, educational, or political organizations, and Food vendors (prepared food; preserves and similar would be considered a craft vendor). Please be sure to fill out the correct form. 

Each 10×10 booth costs $110, and vendors can purchase more than one booth. A 20×10 food vendor space costs $220.

Please fill out the application form and the ST19 form, and return them to Chester Bowl by mail with your check to secure your spot. Checks can be written to Chester Bowl and the mailing address is: Chester Bowl, 1801 E. Skyline Parkway, Duluth MN, 55812

Fall Fest vendor spots have traditionally filled in late July. All registration forms are processed in the order in which they are received. Limited spaces remain, so register now to ensure your spot.

Registration is now open for both new and returning vendors. Please complete these forms and mail them in, along with payment, to reserve a spot at Fall Fest.
