I normally would not do a plug for work, but for this one I am making the exception as its my event and I am producing it, which means its sure to be fierce! I  Would love love love to have some natural hair vendors represented. If you have your own haircare line, make jewelry or hair adornments then you should check out our SunFest 2011  call to vendors!!!

SunFest 2011 Call to Vendors

Do you create or sell traditional arts & crafts that represent the diverse communities inMontgomeryCounty? Are you a community service group that wants to share information with a large public audience? Are you a concessions vendor that offers yummy food treats, or a food truck serving exotic cuisine? Are you a green company with cool products that protect and preserve our environment? Then SunFest 2011 is where you need to be!

The second annual Washington Revels SunFest is a one-day outdoor event held in Downtown Silver Spring,SilverPlaza, onEllsworth Streetbetween Georgia Avenue & Fenton Street (includingSilverPlaza). SunFest 2011 will be held on Sunday, June 19 from 1pm-5pm.  The event is free to the public. Last year’s SunFest had an attendance of over 8,000 patrons and looks to have an even greater turnout this year! Please find below more information about the event and a vendor registration form is attached.

Our Mission: SunFest is a summer solstice celebration of world cultures hosted by Washington Revels. Designed to give both professional and non-professional performers and groups an opportunity to shine and share their cultures, the festival features traditional performing arts -music, dance, drama, and storytelling – from around the world, creating connections among diverse communities.

Entry Requirements and Fees:  As space is limited and because we want the festival to have a certain character, we reserve the right to turn down vendors. Booth fees help pay for event publicity. The sooner you register, the more publicity we can produce. All booths spaces are a minimum of 10 by 10′.

  • Crafts and Products Vendor: $55. We prefer original handmade arts and crafts and unusual manufactured products that represent cultures worldwide, as well as environmentally sustainable products.
  • Concessions Vendor: $75 for concessions or any booth requiring electric hookup. Concessions are desserts or pre-packaged snacks.
  • Food Trucks: $125. We have openings for 2-3 Gourmet Food Truck vendors that represent multicultural/multi-ethnic foods.
  • Community Service booths will be offered free, but space is extremely limited.  Spaces are offered to arts, educational, and community service non-profits; selling any goods, services or soliciting money is prohibited.
  • Fee is for booth space only; no additional equipment is provided. Vendors must provide own table/chair/canopy as desired; all equipment and displays must fit within 12’ x 12’ designated booth.


Space Assignment & Schedule:  There are really good spaces for booths, most of which are prime spaces between our two performing stages.  The booth spaces are assigned based on the date the application is received, so the earlier you sign up the better the location of your booth. Washington Revels will mark off the booth locations and be prepared to show you your space from 8am-noon. Setup may  begin as early as 8am and must be completed by noon. You should be “open for business” by 1pm on Sunday. The hours for sales are from 1pm until 5pm.  All vendors are to remain open for business until 5pm, when clean-up and break-down can begin.


If you would like to participate, please complete the enclosed registration form and return with your check payable to Washington Revels, Inc.
