RiverLink is seeking arts & crafts vendors to join us for our 15th annual RiverFest & Anything That Floats Parade on Saturday August 9th, 2014.  

The festival will be held at the French Broad River Park on Amboy Road between 1pm-7pm (staggered vendor set-up begins at 8:30 am).  The festival will be held RAIN or SHINE so prepare for inclement weather.

Similar to last year RiverFest 2014 will include: Live Music & Variety Acts, the Anything That Floats Parade on the River, Opening Ceremony Parade, Kids Area, Kids of All Ages Play Area, Food, Beer, Beverages & Vendors.

We welcome arts & crafts vendors and commercial vendors to join us for this event. The vendor booth fees for Commercial Businesses are $200 and $100 for Arts & Crafts.

The deadline for vendor applications is Tuesday, August 5 and payment is due with the application. Download the application here.

Booth Space 10' x 10' and there is no electricity. The vendors are responsible for all setup/takedown, tent, tables, chairs, signage, etc. We will be establishing staggered vendor times due to the congested area; all vehicles will need to be cleared by 12:00pm.
