  • Setup begins at 3:30 or 4:30 p.m. depending on booth location. Teardown starts at 9:00 p.m.
  • Preference will be given to vendors participating in all seven (7) weeks of the festival. We will do the best we can to accommodate single night date and location preferences and will contact vendors with alternatives if we are unable to fulfill requests.
  • NEW THIS YEAR – Vendors will be allotted 12’x12′ spot. Food Trucks, trailers, and displays that require a larger space will be charged a surcharge.

  • Vendors are responsible for providing their own tent, table, chairs, etc. Tents are recommended, but not required.

  • Early Bird pricing (15% off, full season only) will be given to vendors that are approved and paid online by March 15.

  • A 25% discount will be applied to full-season vendors from the City of White Bear Lake. A 50% discount will be applied to full-season vendors in the Downtown White Bear Lake Special Service District who have a business outside of the Marketfest map. Businesses who have a business that is inside of the Marketfest map may participate in the space in front of their business (12’x12′) free of charge.

  • We have very limited access to electricity and will try to accommodate requests when possible. As an alternative, quiet generators are permitted. If a generator is too loud or disruptive, vendors will be asked to make other arrangements and/or be removed from Marketfest without a refund.
  • NEW: Returning vendors need to apply and pay by April 15 to be guaranteed their previous spot.
