CALLING ALL VENDORS!
We are now accepting vendor applications for Rooster Walk 9, May 25-28 (Memorial Day weekend). RW9 will take place at Pop’s Farm, which is located just outside of Martinsville, Va., in the rolling foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We will accept vendor applications until March 15th and notify those selected no later than April 1st. All vendors will be selected by a jury process.
Every year, we pride ourselves on having some of the best food, arts, crafts and healing arts vendors the East Coast has to offer. This year will be no different! Please note that if selected, vendors will be required to complete a vending agreement with Rooster Walk and show proof of insurance.
Thanks for your interest in Rooster Walk, a community nonprofit dedicated to promoting music, arts and education in our home of Martinsville-Henry County!
