Be a Vendor at Founders Day

Do you have an awesome food truck or trailer, or a great product to sell? Are you looking to promote your local business? With an average 7,000 attendees each year, Founders Day is a great way to gain exposure in the community!

The vendor application is now closed.

  • Non-Profit Group: $25
  • For-Profit Group (space 10′ x 10′ and smaller): $50
  • For-Profit Group (any space larger than 10′ x 10′): $100
  • Food Truck: $100

There is also a $25 late as we are past our 4/30 deadline.

The vendor application will open in February 2022.

10′ x 10′ tents are available for a fee of $25 and are reserved on a first-come-first-served basis. Setup and tear down will be provided.

Due to our new location, water and electricity will not be available. Please plan accordingly.

Vendors may set up the Friday prior to the event from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM or any time Saturday morning. Vendors must be set up by 10:00 AM.

Tear down may not begin any earlier than 5:00 PM. Any vendor who tears down early may forfeit their right to exhibit in the future.

Once you are setup, the best place for vendors to park is the New Albany Middle or High School parking lots, or at the McCoy Center. Please see the map for more information…

Vendor’s onsite location will not be assigned until the day before the festival and will be communicated on sight, before setup.

All registration fees are non-refundable. The only exception to this rule is if Founders Day is canceled due to COVID-19.

The event occurs rain or shine. We recommend all vendors either bring their own tent or enclosure or rent one of ours.

We reserve the right to deny any late registrations, however, we will accept vendor applications until 4/30.
