Spaces are issued in the order received based on availability and repeat vendors in good standing receive priority placement.


Businesses that don't qualify for a vendor booth may be accepted as part of a Sponsorship Agreement with Capital Lakefair. Sponsor packages are flexible and offer a variety of marketing opportunities in addition to a booth, see sponsorship opportunities for more information.

Burger Double
vendors (food)

The food concessions along Water Street have long been a staple of Lakefair week. Traditionally this has consisted entirely of registered IRS 501 non-profit vendors as a fund-raising opportunity. We also have limited availability for commercial for-profit vendors and local business to join the festival.

Returning non-profit vendors receive priority placement, and we maintain a waiting list for first-time entries as space permits. Note application does not guarantee acceptance, and a member of Lakefair will reach out to coordinate after the initial application.
