NEW 2021 - TWO-DAY EVENT
We invite you to become a vendor at our farm’s annual Mum Fest, September 11-12, 2021 from 10am-4pm! We are currently working on the two-day schedule and will announce our line up of events throughout the summer months.
Even though we are moving to a two-day event, Mum Fest will still be a FREE family friendly event with games, local food, vendors, music, and wholesome farm experiences for connecting kids and adults with local agriculture. We’ve seen this event grow from 500 people in 2014 to well OVER 2,000 last year.
We invite you to reach out to this audience by becoming a Mum Fest vendor. Not only will you have the opportunity to sell your products, we will provide you with ample exposure to the community through our many avenues of marketing and publicity for Mum Fest.
We look forward to having you as a Mum Fest vendor! A sign up form is located at the bottom of this page.

MUM FEST VENDOR GUIDELINES
We will select food vendors/trucks and vendors that sell hand-made, crafted, vintage, one-of-a-kinds, and re-purposed pieces and goods as well as unique merchandise, clothing, jewelry, and fashion accessories. We will not approve direct sales vendors (ex: Lularoe, Tupperware,
Paparazzi, Usborne Books, Pampered Chef, etc.).
All vendors are responsible for tables, display units, table covers, extension cords, generators, signage and any other items needed to effectively set up their area. We CANNOT guarantee any labor assistance for set up, however we will have staff helping out in the vendor area when available. You may request your previous vendor location in the additional comments section of the sign up application, however there are NO guarantees that you'll be granted the same space or request. A vendor layout will be sent out in August.
Food Trucks - If you are a food vendor with a food truck, etc. we ask that you list the size of space needs when signing up so we can plan accordingly. Outdoor food vendors will get priority for electricity.
Craft/Artisan/Bakery/Etc. - Both indoor and outdoor spaces are 10’ x 10’ and we have limited availability of indoor spots. NEW - Vendors may request up to two spaces. If more spaces are needed, please contact us to discuss further. The indoor spaces are located in our barn and will have access to electricity. Outdoor spaces will NOT have access to electricity. Indoor spaces will be granted to return indoor vendors first. Indoor requests will be confirmed after March 1.
Space fees are for TWO days (Saturday and Sunday, 10am-4pm both days). One-day spaces are NOT permitted.
Space Fee & Payment
All return vendors will receive a discounted fee if paid in full by March 1.

We will have NEW designated parking the day of the event for vendors. Only one vehicle per vendor will be allowed to park in the designated area. If you have a trailer, we may ask that you park in a different area of the farm. We ask that once you complete set up that your vehicle be moved to the designated area. More details will follow in August.
Vendors may begin setting up after 4pm on Friday, September 10th or at 7am, Saturday, September 11th. It is not required for you to be here at 7am on that Saturday, but all vendors must be set up and ready to go by 9:30am both days of the event. We are working on improvements for the vendor set up process and more details will follow in August. All vendors must stay set up until 4pm both days of the event or you will not be asked back to future events.
Return vendors must complete the application form at the bottom of this page by March 1 to receive the discounted vendor rate. As you know, we have limited vendor spots, so get your application and payment in early! After March 1, we will open the application up to new vendors and increase the fee to $100.
Food vendors should have “General Liability” insurance and a food permit that is visibly displayed throughout the duration of the event.
COVID-19 - TBD More details will follow as information.
All space fees are non-refundable. Weather Policy: Because of our full calendar of events, we cannot reschedule Mum Fest for a future weekend if adverse weather arises. Therefore, we will not make any refunds for cancellations due to weather. If inevitable inclement weather is expected, we will email all vendors with updates. We will try to hold Mum Fest even if we do have some rain in the forecast. If we are required to cancel due a severe/hazardous weather event, we will make every effort to notify you in advance by any means we feel fit; however, no credits or refunds will be issued. To protect your tent, it must be sturdy enough to withstand Central Illinois weather. Also, you need to have enough weights on each pole of your tent as our farm does not have a lot of wind breaks. Generally, a 40-50-pound weight per each tent leg is standard.
