  1. Hello, I’m a food vendor looking for an application for your art fest. I am from Joplin and currently do their third Thursdays every month along with several other events. So if you could please email me the information I would appreciate it. Thank You.

  2. was looking to enter our name in for a food vendor however I could not find the app anywhere?? can you please help??

  3. Hi,
    I was wanting to check to see if you were still looking for food vendors for Art Fest. I have a food truck and would like to bring it. We take food and put our own twist on it. I would appreciate any information that you could give me and would love to be a part of Art Fest.

    Thank you,

  4. Hello I’m a professional arts and crafts vendor. I’m looking for some shows in May and I see you have one? I sell traditional Celtic and Americana music performed on the hammered dulcimer and other acoustic instruments. These recordings are produced recorded and engineered my me, and are of the highest quality I have 7 recordings of Americana, Sea Shanty, Christmas, Celtic and Americana as well as a CD of Irish pub songs. Come visit my website and hear some of my music. I did a show many years ago, ” Whoa Nellie Days” I think it was called, and had a lotta fun there. Would like to come back to Springfield and show off a bit for your folks !! Might you have a category for music vendors? Thanks in advance for a prompt response Ger

  5. I was haven’t been to this festival in a number of years and I was wondering if you allow vendors from Direct Sales companies or not? If you would please let me know so I know if I can proceed with an application or not. Thank you so much for your help with this.
