Be a Vendor
Thank you for your interest in becoming a vendor at the 2020 Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. Our vendor application deadline was October 1, 2019. We are a competitive juried show. Each year we receive an increasing number of applications for a limited number of vendor booth spaces. We quite often receive application requests after the October 1 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 were received by the October 1 deadline and underwent the jurying process.
If you are interested in applying as a vendor for 2021, please email . We will email you an application once they are available, which is generally around June 1. Applications and will also be posted here on the web site. If you are interested in advertising with the Festival, the advertising deadline for our catalog is January 1. Web ads are accepted year-round.
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.
