THANK YOU for supporting our vendors in a difficult time; we hope to see you in 2021!



Covered Bridge Festival Application Forms

Interested in becoming a crafter at the Covered Bridge Festival?  Your first step is to download our Covered Bridge Festival Pre-Qualification Form.  A standard 10' x 16' booth is currently $350 for the 4-day festival.

Please remember that applicants must hand make their craft – no buy/sell.  This is a juried show.  Pre-qualification forms are added to the Committee's files for up to 3 years of consideration.  Submitting a pre-qualification application does not guarantee you a spot in the show. If your pre-qualification forms and paperwork are in order, you will be placed in the qualified pool of vendors.  Craft vendors who were at the prior festival are given priority to return.  The spaces of craft vendors who elect not to return will be filled from the pre-qualified pool of applicants who have already been approved.  If you are in the pre-qualified pool, you will be notified in late spring if your pre-qualification application was selected to attend our upcoming festival as a new vendor.  If you are one of the vendors selected, you will receive a full application to fill out along with instructions for space payment. If you were not selected from the pre-qualification pool for the given year, you will not be notified directly. You will only be notified if you were selected as a vendor, or if your pre-qualification paperwork has expired (after 3 years).  THE 2021 SHOW IS PLANNED FOR OCTOBER 7 - 10, 2021.

Download the food vendor application form and follow the instructions on the form to submit it for consideration!
