Arts Market
As always, we will host a huge arts market, with 24 of our best local and regional makers of hand-crafted artworks and home furnishings. We have carefully curated our group of arts market vendors to showcase the finest quality. We’re taking applications for Arts Market vendors until June 30 – see here to apply.

Food Vendors
Once again, we’re going overboard with a huge spread of great barbecue, representing several regional styles – with a fresh emphasis on Louisiana, since New Orleans has seen a surge in barbecue restaurants (ahem) in the time since we started this festival! And yes, it’s a barbecue festival – but we will have some options for vegetarians, vegans and those who eat gluten-free. We’re taking applications for food vendors until July 7 – see here to apply.

VIP Experience Passes
To help recoup some of our costs, we put on sale a very limited number of special VIP Experience backstage passes. These provide access to special viewing and seating areas at both stages, a complimentary bar and a deluxe indoor hospitality suite with a balcony view of Lafayette Square, air conditioning, catering and real bathrooms. The VIP Experience passes cost $250 each (plus a service charge of $13.49), and are good for the entire weekend. We do not sell single-day passes. The passes are not transferrable (from one person to another) and all sales are final (no refunds). To order, click here. Note: VIP passes are non-transferrable and non-refundable.
