CelticFest Mississippi simply wouldn’t be a festival without its vendors! For the festival go-er we want you to have the perfect experience so in addition to the multiple stages of music, dance, workshops, athletics & live animal exhibits, there are a variety of Celtic and specialty item vendors. And if you’re hungry, there are also plenty of food and drink vendors to keep your belly happy!

The Celtic Heritage Society booth is where you can get information and purchase Raffle Tickets, CelticFest MS T-Shirts, Performer CDs and Merchandise as well as where you get your Beer & Wine Tickets.

Friday: 5:00pm-10pm

Information for Vendors

CelticFest

Our purpose is to provide both an educational and entertaining festival experience. We accomplish this by bringing together top notch headliners, the best regional Celtic musicians, dancers, artists and athletes as well as quality vendors and special events.  We limit the number of vendors carrying similar products because we want you to be successful.  We’ve enjoyed consistent growth since our first festival in 1991 and welcome the challenge to continue to expand and improve. Vendors will be assigned booth locations, all of which are in high traffic areas located outside.  Rain or Shine.

VENDOR GUIDELINES

Proof of Liability Insurance is highly encouraged. Reasonably priced single event liability insurance is available from online sources specifically for festival vendors but an annual policy is more economical.  CelticFest MS,  The Celtic Heritage Society and The MS Agriculture & Forestry Museum will not be held liable if any festival goer, volunteer or vendor is injured because of your booth or products.  Protect yourself!

Sales Tax will be collected from you at the end of the Festival and paid on your behalf to the Dept. of Revenue. We will provide two forms you will need to turn in along with your calculated tax liability before you leave.  Sales tax for Jackson is 7% plus an additional 1% Special Tax for Jackson.

All vendors must have a Tent or Food Truck. Vendors must provide their own seating, extension cords, lighting and tables.  Power is available at no additional charge. Depending on weather and number of vendors, be prepared to set up either on grass or pavement. You may NOT stake your tent if you’re on pavement. Food Vendors MUST contain your Gray water. No Dumping.

All spaces will be assigned. You may begin setup after 9am on Friday or by prior arrangement only.  Gates open at 5:00pm on Friday.  If you are only coming on Saturday access begins at 7am and you must be set up by 9:45am with vehicles moved to designated parking areas.

***We are no longer able to accommodate overnight camping on the grounds. There are campgrounds nearby. The link and information is on the Accommodations page***

A determination of inclusion will be made by the Vendor Committee once all requirements are met. See How to Apply below.
