vendorsThe Vendor Committee encourages all potential applicants to visit the Festival to get a flavor of the type of products sold. Each year we receive an increasing number of applications for a limited number of vendor booth spaces. When applying to the Festival, please keep in mind that we are always looking for new and fresh ideas. Please review our Vendor Application Tips for more information about applying as a vendor.

See the Preinspection Guidelines from the Fire Marshal.

Food Vendor Inquiries

Food vendors are primarily provided through a contract with the Howard County Fairgrounds itself. The Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival is only able to hire food vendors who sell lamb products. If you are interested in applying, and sell lamb, please contact for more information.
