Musicians and performance artists are free. There are no registration fees for brick-and-mortar venues, though business donations are received with gratitude. Anyone planning to vend their wares will be asked to pay the $45 fee. Those fees help offset the production costs for this nonprofit event.
Hours of Operation: 10 am – 4 pm
Please be advised that we will be accepting submissions up until the day of the event. We cannot guarantee that you will be listed in the brochure or marketing materials if we receive your submission after August 1st.
Liability: All participants are responsible for their own body of work, equipment, booth space, etc. If possible, our volunteer team will assist with loading/unloading and offer small breaks throughout the day. Bethlehem Summerfest, Bethlehem Events, the Town of Bethlehem and/or any other organization or individual will not be held responsible for merchandise/items left unattended, lost or stolen goods.
Location and Lot Size: Booths will be set up in the center of Bethlehem. Lots will be assigned according to the organizer’s discretion. We will attempt to honor specific requests on a “first come, first serve” basis, and a limited number of spots with electricity may be available. Each vendor is allotted a 10′ x 10′ booth space unless otherwise prearranged with event organizers.
Set-up and Take-down: Booths should be set up and ready for customers no later than 9:30 am and dismantled no earlier than 4:00 pm. Barring catastrophic circumstances, late setup and early breakdown will affect registration acceptance at future events.
