Hello Potential Vendors for the 38th Annual Belleville Oktoberfest ~
It is that time of year once again when Spring is here and some of us start planning for Fall. We will be keeping the Traditional German Tent, along with the Wiener Dog Race, the Bags Tournament and adding few new surprises. One of those being we have added a Third Stage and additional space for Vendors to spread out & visitors to enjoy. Not only will the weekend be filled with the sounds of Customary German Music inside the Bier Tent, the main stage will feature popular local bands as well as some more nationally known artists. The third stage will have live music all weekend increasing foot traffic to vendors in that area.
Vendor space is 1st come 1st serve, please complete the attached form and mail payment as soon as possible to hold your spot for this year’s festival. The deadline for registration and payment to avoid a late fee is 9/1/2018. A fee of $50.00 will be added to your registration fee *Please note all vendors operating mobile food trucks must obtain a license from the City of Belleville to be permitted to operate during this event.
