VENDING

We are currently accepting vendor applications for Rooster Walk 14 Music & Arts Festival. 

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 you are selected, vendors will be required to coomplete a vending agreement with Rooster Walk and provide proof of insurance. In addition, Henry County requires vendors to purchase a peddler’s permit. 

Thanks for your interest in Rooster Walk, a community nonprofit dedicated to promoting music, arts and education in our home of Martinsville-Henry County!

We will notify those selected for RW14 no later than April 10, 2024.
