Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area is now accepting applications for food and craft vendors to participate in the 21st annual Spring Planting and Music Festival on Saturday, April 24, 2021.

A one-time fee of $25 is required for vendors interested in selling crafts or food items during this one-day festival. This fee can also be applied towards an application to be a part of other park-sponsored events such as the annual Haunting in the Hills Storytelling Festival on September 18, 2021.

All vendors will need to bring their own tent, table, chairs and equipment. Food vendors will be provided electrical hook-ups along with access to a water hydrant. Generators are not permitted. The National Park Service policy regarding food sales requires proof of general liability insurance as well as a health and safety inspection. Protocols recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be in place for this event to enhance the protection of individuals and communities from coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).

Interested individuals should contact the Fee Program Manager, Letitia Neal, (423) 569-7321, or tish_neal@nps.gov. Applications are available online at https://www.nps.gov/biso/getinvolved/commercial-use-authorization-application-and-requirements.htm. Food vendor applications are due no later than March 19, 2021. Craft vendor applications will be accepted up until the day of the event.
