Be a Vendor
Thank you for your interest in becoming a vendor at the 2022 Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. The Festival serves to showcase, and provide a marketplace for, the amazing range of products, services, activities, skills and artistry that both support and reflect the spectacular versatility and variety of what sheep have to offer. The Vendor Committee encourages all potential applicants to visit the Festival to get a flavor of the type of products sold. We are looking for unique or rare or exciting products that help us meet our mission. We have a sophisticated customer base and we have an opportunity to provide them with products they cannot find anywhere else.
New vendors – We are now using an online application process. Please use this link to submit your application for the 2022 Festival. The application deadline is October 1, 2021. Jurying will take place in mid-November, and letters will go out to all applicants by mid-January.
Returning vendors – If you signed a contract for the 2021 festival and did not request a refund of your booth fee, you probably don’t need to submit a new application for 2022. Please email if you are unsure of your status.
New and returning vendors – 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.
