We are now accepting vendor applications for Rooster Walk 12, May 21-24, 2020 (Memorial Day weekend). RW12 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 April 1st, and notify those selected no later than April 15th.

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. In addition, Henry County requires vendors to purchase a peddler’s permit ($50 one-time fee for all of 2018).

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