Dear Vendors,

Welcome to the 39th Annual Huckleberry Festival. The last few years I have sent the application/contract for booths to all of the past vendors and to all of the vendors on the waiting list. This works well so I will continue doing it. Please print or type and be sure to fill out the form completely, making sure you list the items you are selling. If you have any questions you can call me at 406-827-3301 or E-mail Here

Booth Fees: Covered booth spaces, with electricity, are $75.00 (you can be put on a waiting list, if desired). We offer a web-link, email address or phone number as part of your information on our website, for no additional charge. If you would like us to provide a web page on our site for your products, we can do so for an additional $55 fee.

Past Vendors: You will have until April 15th to get your space/parking fees to me. You will still get a full refund for cancellation if I am notified by July 15th. There will not be any refund of monies if the cancellation is after July 15th. If you do not notify me and you are a no show for any reason, you will not be invited back and your space/parking fees will NOT be refunded.

Waiting List Vendors: I will fill empty spaces from the waiting list based on the order in which your contract and fee is received. I mark the date received on each contract and will notify you when received. The Festival Treasurer will hold your money until after the Festival, in the event of a late cancellation. If you don't want us to do that please notify me before July 15th, and a refund of your money will be given at the time of cancellation.

All Vendors: The hours of the festival are Friday, August 10th, 5:00 - 9:00pm, Saturday, August 11th, 9:00am - 5:00pm and Sunday, August 12th, 10:00am - 4:00pm. Friday is not mandatory but it is to your benefit to be open. We have activities in the park starting at 5:00 p.m. Friday. The hours Saturday and Sunday are mandatory. Non-compliance to Saturday & Sunday hours will result in not being invited back the following year. The auction will start at 5:00pm Saturday. This was changed to accommodate the vendors who felt that the auction distracted from the customers visiting their booths. If you wish to stay open later please do so; it will be to your advantage. Many people see your items at the auction and wish to purchase more.

If you need your RV holding tank pumped during the weekend please let me know and I will give your space or RV location to the people that service the port-a-potties. There will be ice available to buy at the huckleberry festival food booth # 5 (near the stage).

Food Vendors: You are encouraged to be open on Friday. We always have people looking for food.

Set-up: You may drive your vehicle into the park to unload on Friday before 4:45pm and after 9:00pm; also on Saturday before 8:30am. Please drive in, unload, drive out & park, then return to your space for setting up. This will allow everyone to get their product to their booth with less congestion. The only vehicles that will be allowed in the park during the festival hours will be vehicles used for garbage detail, ice delivery and emergency vehicles. If you need assistance unloading, setting up or taking down your booth, please include a note with your application.

Parking: Even if you have a handicap sticker, please don't park in the handicap parking area! We will try to have a handicap vendor parking area available. We want the customers to have the convenience first. That is why we all are at the festival. Overnight camping permits for RVs are available for $10.00 for the weekend.
