Become A Vendor!
In 2023 we are aiming to have 50 vendor spots available! This festival has a track record of bringing out of state and inter-island visitors just to attend the weekends events, entertainment and experiences. We will be offering vendor spots to our EVH Ohana level members first and then 2022 wait-listed vendors prior to general enrollment.
All vendors will be required to attend both festival days or will be subject to a "vendor absence fine."
Vendor Fee: $60
Absence Fine To Be Refunded After Festival: $20
TOTAL APPLICATION FEE: $80
Vendor Absence Fine will be issued back to compliant vendors within a 30 day period after the 2023 EVH Festival is completed. Mahalo for your understanding.
