Information for Marketplace Vendors
We accept submissions from food trucks/food vendors, fruit and produce sellers, arts and crafts, retail merchandise and business promotional vendors. If you would like to sell items during the fair please apply using the Marketplace form found at this page, here.
Prior to IowaStock2017 All Iowa Music & Arts Fair vendors are required to provide proof of insurance where applicable. Payment to vend is due at the time of the application.
Vendors are not required to be vend all four days. We just need to know your vending plans ahead of time.
Security will be provided in the IowaStock Market Place and Arts & Crafts Emporium both during operational hours and non-operational hours. During our operational hours vendors are responsible for either staffing their booths or for their merchandise should they leave it without personnel.
Additional Vendor Promotions
All vendors are entitled to a promotional advertisement in the IowaStock2017 All Iowa Music & Arts Fair edition of The Communicator at no additional cost for a business card sized advertisement. Larger sizes are available by calling Jonathan at 515-770-1218.
Vendors are also entitled to a promotional video to be placed on our IowaStock Entertainment Facebook page and our YouTube channel. Vendors may submit a video up to two minutes in length promoting their business but they must also include why they are vending at IowaStock2017 All Iowa Music & Arts Fair.

While we do not have unlimited space for vending IowaStock2017 All Iowa Music & Arts Fair (not festival) is operated on nearly 500 acres spanning two counties. To put this into perspective the Iowa State Fair uses 450 acres.

Vending will be rain or shine, just like the fair, however for an additional 10% rain insurance is available.
