Artists, vendors wanted for Kent Cajun Food and Music Fest

Aug. 20 event presented by the Kent Downtown Partnership

The Kent Downtown Partnership (KDP) is seeking artists and vendors to participate in the 2022 Cajun Food & Music Fest from 3 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 20.

This is an energetic, new community event, open to all ages, inspired by one of Kent’s small businesses Altha’s Louisiana Cajun Spices shop, according to KDP.

The festival will be at downtown Kent’s Burlington Green Park, along Railroad Avenue between East Smith Street and East Meeker Street. Railroad Avenue will be closed to vehicles for a pedestrian marketplace, beer garden, music stage, kids’ activities and artists/vendors displays.

The KDP is accepting applications for artists and vendors.

“We are looking for a variety of vendors with a variety of price points, mediums and focuses,” according to KDP. “Priority will be given to vendors whose items are 60% handcrafted and fit the vision of the marketplace. Fine artists and those who make handmade goods are encouraged to apply.”

Priority will be given to those who apply early. Vendors will be provided a space 10 feet by 10 feet outdoors on Railroad Avenue. Vendors must provide their own table and/or fixtures and weather protection. Vendors are required to be set up in their space prior to the opening event and must remain until the event closes. Vendors are responsible for handling their own sales, booths and materials.

A booth fee of $150 is due upon acceptance/confirmation by the KDP. There is no application fee.

Booth spaces do not include power; if power is required, inquire with the program coordinator.
