Arkansas Renaissance Festival Vendor Details

The Arkansas Renaissance Festival will last for a total of  11 days, starting August 31st to September 29th (Saturdays and Sundays plus Labor Day).  

We are committed to constructing, operating, and maintaining a premier Permanent Renaissance Festival. We are seeking vendors who are also willing to make the necessary commitment of time and money to join us in building a Renaissance Festival that will continue to grow for many years to come.

Our Festival will provide a complete fun-filled day, interacting on the street and presenting stage performances. We are all members of the cast. Everyone is expected to create the illusion of the period or theme with costumes, shop structures, decorations and displays, products, sales, and speech patterns during customer interaction.  All performers, vendors, and employees are in period costuming, and all twenty-first-century items are hidden.

Every vendor is responsible for building or setting up their own selling area. We ask for an accurate rendering of your final design for approval, including a material list, floor plan, and color choices. New vendors may rent a shop if they are available or set-up a period tent for the first three years. Let us help you! It is easier than you think.

We are offering a building grant of up to $2,500 toward construction materials as well as waiving the rental fee for the 2024 season for those who construct a building for the 2024 season.  

We are a juried show.  The first round of applications will be accepted until January 31st.  The jurying of applicants is in early February. Applicants are notified by email concerning the results on or around Feb 19th.  Once accepted, a space must be secured, after which a participation agreement will be forwarded. Accepted vendors will be provided a list of available spaces and have until March 10th to secure a spot.  Pricing is based on the linear frontage feet as well as location at the festival. When vendors are provided a list of spaces, prices will be included.  Vendors can expect a single weekend spot to be priced at $200-$300 for single weeks and seasonal long-term locations to be at $800+ for the season. 

The expectation for this process is for Vendors looking to build a Permanent Structure will be evaluated as applications are received and notified generally within 2 weeks of application so construction can begin.  As we are at a New Location at Dragonstone Springs, priority will be given to those building and investing in the Village.

Products should be made with materials that were available in the 16th Century or earlier.  We discourage import or mass-produced items. 

We highly encourage demonstrating artists and products that conform to high quality and ethical standards: unique, traditional, or original in design, functionally appropriate, durable, well-made, and guaranteed by their maker to be satisfactory to the customer.

We’ve filled all our face-painting spots for this year’s festival! Thank you for your enthusiasm, and keep exploring our other fantastic opportunities.
