*Due to the need for food variety and our commitment to protecting vendor profit, our food vendor spots are limited and the application policy must be different than that of the craft vendor.
 AFTER securing spots for our returning vendors, it’s our policy to then seek new food vendors for possible openings. Information on such openings will not be available until after January 8, 2017. 
If you would like to be placed on our prospective vendor list, send your contact information and a brief description of your product to the e-mail address provided. Thank you for your interest in our festival.

Additional Vendor Info

The Camden Daffodil Festival will be held March 10-11, 2017, in downtown Camden, Arkansas, and we invite you to participate! There will be 75 craft booths available. Applications will be accepted until February 1, 2017 and assigned on a first come basis. We are seeking crafts for yard & garden related items, handmade craft, and artwork. This will be a juried festival, and we discourage manufactured items unless pre-approved. We require two current photos representative of your crafts, accompanied by your check or money order to be included with your application. Applicants not approved will be notified and checks returned.

Booth spaces measure 12x12 at a cost of $75.00 each space, maximum two spaces. Please advise if electricity is required for your craft. Vendors are responsible for their own tents and set-ups. As booths will be set up on pavement, you will need means of securing tents. The Daffodil Festival is an outdoor event and vendors should come prepared for the weather and means of protecting their set-ups. Set-up time will be Thursday, March 9th after 5:30 p.m. and Friday, March 10th between 7:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Anyone checking in after that time will not be permitted to participate. Security will be provided for the event. Vendors will not be allowed to spend the night in the sales area. All vehicles must be out of the sales area by 8:30 a.m. each day and may not re-enter until the festival closes each day. No vendor will be allowed to break down and move until the end of festival except in extreme conditions.

We look forward to having you participate and will do everything possible to make your stay pleasant and profitable. We will have major advertising in all medias to promote the festival.

A hospitality packet with details and hotels will be mailed to you upon signing up. If we can be of further help to you, or you need additional information, please contact Johnny Hobbie at (870) 390-0505.
