Be a Vendor

Thank you for your interest in becoming a vendor at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. Our vendor application deadline is October 1. We quite often receive application requests after this deadline to be placed on a vendor waiting list. Please know that any vendor waiting list for the Festival is based upon those applications which are received and juried by the October 1, deadline. Please check this website in June for a vendor application for the following Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.

vendorsIf you submitted an application for the upcoming Festival, the jurying takes place in mid-November, and letters will go out by mid-December. If you are interested in advertising with the Festival, the ad deadline for new vendor applicants is January 1. Web ads are accepted year-round.

The Vendor Committee encourages all potential applicants to visit the Festival to get a flavor of the type of products sold at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. Each year we receive an increasing number of vendor 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.

If you are interested in applying as a vendor for the upcoming year, please email and your name will be placed on an interest list. Applications for the following year will be mailed in June, and also posted here on the web site.

See the Preinspection Guidelines from the Fire Marshal.

Food Vendor Inquiries

Food Vendors are primarily provided through a contract with the Fairgrounds itself. We are only able to accept Food Vendor Applications from those who sell lamb products. If you are interested in applying, and sell lamb, please contact for more information.
