For 2018, Chester County Parks will sponsor special events that feature food and craft vendors selected through an application process.
An application must be received with payment & picture (if applicable) by the deadline to receive full consideration. In the case of identical applications from separate vendors, the one received first shall be given preference. Selected vendors will receive notice on how to proceed.
The County shall determine the number and type of vendors needed for event theme and size. Those the County does not select will be notified and payment returned. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
We do not offer protection from the rain or sun - vendors are strongly encouraged to bring a small canopy, which may be set up within your assigned space. We cannot guarantee attendance figures.
Chester County Parks will host three events that award vendor space via an application process. Due to limitations, the County cannot guarantee space for all applicants. Consideration will be given based on event needs, space and electric availability, amount of duplicated products and required criteria of the event. Vendors must adhere to the Food Vendor Guidelines.
For smaller events, vendors are individually solicited based on desired menu items, proximity to park, and previous experience.

Chester County Parks will host two events that feature craft vendors. These vendors feature hand-made items for display and sale. All items to be sold must be the created work of the vendor. Commercially manufactured items, kits and/or items not handcrafted or designed by the vendor may not be sold.We do not sponsor “juried” craft shows. Vendors interested in participating must complete an application form and submit with payment. Vendors must adhere to the Craft Vendor Guidelines.
We are no longer excepting Commercial Vendor applications for any event. Exceptions may be made if the proposed product(s) directly relate to the event theme. Please do not submit a craft vendor form in anticipation of participating. For more information, please email the Program Coordinator.
