Vendor Information

Vendor applications are now open for all Hola Carolina events!

We’re so excited you’re interested in being a vendor at Hola Carolina Festivals and Events. Below are all the details to help ensure you’re successful. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Vendor Coordinator, at [email protected] with any questions.

Vendor Application
Due to the increasing popularity of our festivals and limited space availability, Hola Carolina will accept a limited number of food, craft, and information booth vendors through a selection process. In order to provide everyone a fair opportunity to participate, vendors will be chosen by a selection committee. Those selected will represent a variety of foods, attractive displays, and competitive prices.

Submitting a vendor application does not guarantee entry into the festival. If accepted, a confirmation notice, invoice and request for payment will be sent to you via email.
