Blackberry Vendor Information
Please thoroughly review the vendor application form and festival map. If you are interested in being a vendor, fill out the form completely and legibly and mail with your non-refundable vendor fee and refundable setup/teardown deposit. Include photos of your products and booth set up. This is the 15th Annual NC Blackberry Festival, and we anticipate a great event! The 2015 Festival brought well over 17,000 visitors and 150+ vendors to Historic Downtown Lenoir. Thank you for considering our event. It’s a BERRY good time!
All vendors will use the same form. To download, click the link below (or at top of this page). Please print and mail with appropriate fees. Mail form and fees to:
Caldwell Chamber of Commerce
1909 Hickory Blvd. SE
Lenoir, NC 28645
Vendors will receive acceptance confirmation via email. If a vendor is not accepted, all fees are returned. If a vendor is accepted, registration fees are non-refundable. A $100 set-up/teardown deposit is required from each vendor in a separate check from the registration fee. The set-up/teardown deposit will be returned in its original form (check, money order, or cash) at the close of the festival. If a vendor does not attend or leaves the festival before the closing, the fee is forfeited to the Caldwell Chamber of Commerce. Leaving the festival early is very dangerous to visitors and will not be tolerated. Instructions and space assignment will be emailed approximately one week prior to festival.
