IngenuityFest Vendor Info & Applications

Ingenuity is looking for corporate, food, nonprofit, and artist/crafter/apparel vendors. Each year we welcome thousands to our Festival!

We try to create a balanced showcase, with limited overlap. We do our best to notify vendors on a timely basis if we will not be able to showcase you in a given year. If you have questions about the status of your application, please contact


1. How much does it cost to vend at IngenuityFest?

We charge our artisan/crafter/apparel vendors $250 to vend in a 10×10 space for the entire 3-day weekend. Have a set-up that’s larger than 10×10?  Not a problem! However, you may be subject to additional fees.

Non-profit vendors should contact us for special pricing, and to discuss possible outreach activities.

Corporate and food donors must contact Ingenuity for pricing.

2. Can I vend for just one day?

We’re open to it . . . we prefer that you find a buddy to fill your space for the duration of the weekend, but if you can’t please contact us for single-day rates.

3. What are the Festival/Vendor hours?

IngenuityFest is September 27-29, 2019.

**Festival hours are as follows:
Friday: 6 PM – 1 AM
Saturday: 1 PM – 1 AM
Sunday: noon – 6PM

**Vendor hours may vary subject to festival location, but are typically as follows:
Friday: 6 PM – 11 PM
Saturday: 1 PM – 11 PM

4. Where are the vendors located?

Ingenuity will once again be located at 5401 Hamilton Avenue in St Clair Superior. The majority of vendors will be located indoors, however it is possible that some will be outside due to factors like number of vendors and set-up size.

5. What does Ingenuity provide for the vendors? 

We’ll make sure you have ambient lighting, a table and two chairs. You’re likely (though not guaranteed) to be located near a wall and/or columns to hang signage on. You will be provided access to electricity, if requested, but you are responsible for bringing extension cords and any other need specific to your set up.

Please note, space is limited.  Applications will be accepted through August 15th or until space is full. **

**Subject to change.
