BOOTH FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE DUE TO NO SHOW OR RAIN.  If the festival is canceled due to COVID or dangerous weather, booth fees can be applied to next years event, refunded or considered a donation to the Old Town Decherd Merchants Association.
 
Once you click on the Start Application button if you do not have an account set-up with Eventeny, you will need to create one.  This process will request that you enter a payment method.  You will not be charged anything until your application has been approved.  Booth prices are listed below.
