2016 Arts & Crafts Vendor Information

This year the Albuquerque Folk Festival will take place on June 4th at the Albuquerque International Balloon Museum. We are thrilled to invite past Arts & Crafts vendors, as well as vendors who are new to the festival to apply and participate in 2016.

Click HERE to download a word document version of the 2016 Albuquerque Folk Festival Arts & Craft (non-food) vendor application, and HERE for a pdf. Click HERE for the Fire Marshall approved tent layouts, and HERE for a pdf.

The application deadline this year for is APRIL 28th if you want your website in our brochure and/or order a tent. May 2 is the final deadline. A completed application must include all items in the checklist at the top of the first page of the application (application, check, copy of sellers permit and tent floor plan choice), and please note only outdoor spaces are offered.

Please look over the information carefully as we have made changes from previous years. A key change is booth layout. This year instead of submitting your own tent layout sketch please review the approved tent layout options on page 2 of the vendor application and choose one, including your choice in your application.

Once your application has been processed, we will send you an email confirming your participation and detailing the logistics for the festival day.
