Fall Fest Vendor Information

*** UPDATE JUNE 19- All Fall Fest Food Vendor, Craft Vendor, and Informational Vendor spots are now FULL. The only exceptions would be in the kids area for groups providing activities for children. If you would like to find out more about being on a wait list for Food, Craft, or Information spots, please email sam@chesterbowl.org. END UPDATE***

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 16, with a rain date of Sunday, September 17. 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 2022 were mailed 2023 registration forms on February 6th by both mail and email. Please contact sam@chesterbowl.org if you did not get the forms (allowing time for the mail to arrive). 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.

Starting May 1, 2023, registration opened to new vendors and applications can be found here.

There are three types of registration, each with its own registration form- Craft vendors, Informational, educational, or political organizations, 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 $105, and vendors can purchase more than one booth. A 20×10 food vendor space costs $210.

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. 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!
