We have a wide range of vendor spaces available! Our vendor spaces surround our main stage area and help make up the heart of our festival grounds. From structured spaces to room for your food truck, we have the space for you to bring your business to R&S!
We provide our artisan vendors with a 10×10 space in our main stage area. Artisan vendors are not permitted to run generators at R&S, and need to provide their own lighting via battery powered lights. Vendors are also expected to provide their own 10×10 tents and tables.
Unlike our artisan vendors, our food vendor spaces have a lot of variation. We have a number of structured spaces available, as well as open spaces for food trucks and trailers. Below you can find more details on our structured spaces.
Our coffee shack area is a covered space equipped with a sink. Vendors in this space are encouraged to supply their own power via generators.
Additional tables, food prep equipment and tent coverage should be provided by vendor.
Vendor hours change depending on the type of vendor you are. Generally, folks are asked to remain open during certain festival hours; this can be adjusted on a case-by-case basis. More information on hours is found in the vendor contract.
