Food Vendor Application

If you are a merchandise vendor, please complete the Merchandise Vendor application.
We strive to avoid food type duplications i.e. more than one food vendor serving like type items.  Before completing this form, it is recommended that you email the Colorado Irish Festival office first to ensure that your food category type has not already been reserved.  Email us at festivaldirector@coloradoirishfestival.com.   


Load-in times may be staggered to allow for load-in efficiency based on your booth location.
Approximately how many hours does it take for you to unload? (does not include set up time, just unloading) *
Load in hours are Friday, July 12 from 9am – 3pm. Booths must be set up and ready when event opens at 5pm. Tell us your preferred load in times: *
If the opportunity was available, would you be available to load-in Thursday, July 11 in late afternoon? (Security is available on Thursday PM). *
