This application is not for local businesses–
Tennessee Honey Festival is devoted to maintaining a creatively driven vendor marketplace. Therefore, we limit the number of promotional spaces at the event. Local businesses can be a part of Tennessee Honey Festival through sponsorship of the event. Please contact our event team at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in sponsoring this event.
Please find a few examples below to help you identify what vendor type you are.
An artist is considered someone who personally handcrafts the items they will offer at the event. A local business is considered a locally owned and operated business. Booth spaces at the 2022 Tennessee Honey Festival are reserved for honey/beekeepers, local artists, crafters, food vendors, and sponsors. Non-profit organizations must be a registered 501c3.
If you sell an assortment of items that are hand-crafted by different local artisans, you are considered a local artisan business. If you sell screen printed items (whether the designs are created by you or not), you are considered a local artisan business. If you mold, wrap, create unique pieces of jewelry by hand, you are considered an artist. If you concoct your own scent profiles and pour your own candles/wax melts, you are considered an artist.
