Vendor Information

We are now accepting vendors for the Town's spring festival, Celebrate

La Plata on Saturday, April 29th from noon to 4 pm. There is a $25 nonrefundable vendor charge for a space and applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. We have about 30 spaces available and very few with access to electricity. As a vendor, you must provide your own tables, chairs and pop-up tent (not required). We will only accept one home-party sales vendor per company (like Mary Kay, Thirty-One, Tupperware, etc.).

We are full on craft and business vendor spaces. You may submit your application to be added to the waitlist.

Spaces still available for the fitness area.

Due to limited number of vendor spaces, this event fills up quickly. Registration will close once all the vendor spaces are full. (Waiting list will be started if necessary.)

Submit the application and payment to:
