Artisan and Food Vendor Applications
Please review the Information, Rules and Procedures PDF carefully before submitting your application.
Food Vendors - Here is a Quick reference tool for health department requirements. This is a draft and not an official document which is subject to change but it is a good starting point. The 2022 price for a three day permit from CCHD was $100. Contact Cleveland County Health Department at email@example.com or call 405-321-4048 with any specific questions.
There is a nonrefundable $15 Application Fee due with ALL vendor applications. Remaining fees will not be collected until AFTER you have been accepted. ALL artisans, not just the new ones, must submit a complete list of products or services. IF the interactive website feature gets fixes, your product descriptions will be visible to patrons - please type carefully! INCLUDE PICTURES! Neither our patrons nor our jury have all 200 vendors memorized by name. Only one application per booth allowed.
Applications must be submitted through the online system at mis.medievalfair.org.
