Who is a Green Scene Vendor?
Vendors at previous events have included artists, crafters, carpenters, tie-dyers, the National Park volunteer coordinator, and the La Junta Clothing Exchange from Alpine. Bakers, tamal-makers, jewelers, potters and prism builders. Texas Master Naturalists program was represented.
Hopefully they will all return this year! We invite vendors who share our vision of a more sustainable, practical world that is reflected in the items they are selling or information they are sharing. Both private individuals and businesses may register as a vendor. This is your opportunity to show everyone how "Green" you are or are becoming! Support our cause and sell your product, too!
Vendor space is on a first come, first served basis. If you have a self contained, sturdy shade structure, we will have designated vendor setup areas throughout the Ghost Town. All tents/canopies must be securely tied down! Be sure to include your space requirements on your registration form.
This is a pedestrian/bicycle friendly event and parking may be limited! The online site map will show the location. Our website is mobile friendly, ready for phones and tablets.
Drinking water will be provided for free at water stations. We encourage everyone in your party to bring their own reusable water container or purchase an official GREEN SCENE water bottle.
Both private individuals and businesses may register as a vendor at the Festival for just $20. Non-profit groups/charities are not required to pay the fee.
