***Complete the vendor application & payment below***


Welcome to the Heritage Festival! Last year we had 82 vendors participate on our traditional First Saturday in October event. The crowds were great and many vendors reported record sales for the day.

As in years past, we will close Main and College Streets in downtown Mars Hill and will provide shuttle service to minimize parking problems. We will use the same one-way patterns employed last year for setup and breakdown.

If you wish to request the same booth space as last year, your application must be received by August 15, 2017. Booth spaces not reserved by this date may be assigned to other applicants. Once your application has been received and approved, you will receive your booth assignment and a layout of the festival. This will indicate the traffic pattern to use. These will go out in early September.

Submit your application electronically below. Or, print from here:  Heritage Vendor Application – 2017

Or, request that a PDF version of the Guidelines and Vendor Application be sent to you for submitting manually. You may also pick up a hard copy at the Madison County Visitor Center in Mars Hill. Please read the application carefully, then sign and return the form with your payment to the address at the bottom of the form. You may also drop off your form and payment at the Madison County Visitor Center at 56 South Main Street in Mars Hill. The visitor center is at the corner opposite the Post Office at Hwy 213 and Main Street.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Rod Bowling at or 828-680-0661.

I look forward to seeing you in October.

—Rod Bowling, Festival Coordinator
