Become A Vendor

In 2024 we are aiming to have 40 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 2023 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 If Both Days Are Not Attended: $20
