  • Click on the links below based on the type of vendor you are to begin the application process.
  • Review the information on the page and then click the “add to cart” button.

  • If you are new and have never registered for any programs with DPR in the past, click create new account and follow the prompts.
  • Once you are to the end of the process you will pay for your booth space and your application will be forwarded on to staff. At this point you will also have the ability to print and/or email your receipt. Please do so for your records.

Non-food vendors
All items being sold that are mass produced, reproduced, etc. Commercial Businesses are considered. Visit Active Net to register.

Food Vendors:
All items being consumed by participants (whether it is beverages, food, desserts, frozen treats, ice cream, etc.) are considered to be a food vendor. Visit Active Net to register.

The process for food vendors is different so that we can screen menu items and not have multiple vendors with the same menu. We will still try our best to accept vendors on a first come first served basis based on menu items. To apply please click on the link below. It will take you to a Food Vendor Application Form. Please fill in all the required fields. You also have the ability to upload your menu and insurance. Once the form(s) are complete it will be sent on to festival staff. Staff will review it, cross reference menu items and let you know of your standing.

If you are accepted you will be sent an email from both our registration system as well as an email from staff about the fees that are due. You will login to our registration system and pay. You will have 2 business days to pay. If you fail to pay you must contact staff to see if your space is still available. If space is not available you will be placed on the waiting list.

For information, contact Amy Pehowic at 919-560-4355, ext. 27212.
