As it has been for the past 5 years - Downtown Lake Stevens is still undergoing active construction. That construction WILL change the setup of the vendors. The number of vendors allowed and location of vendors has not been determined at this time. Those decisions will be made as we get closer to festival time hopefully in June or the first week of July. DO NOT request the same spot you had before - it doesn't exist!
We anticipate Returning vendors applications will be open on March 15th, 2022. Returning vendor applications will be open until April 1st at which time vendor applications will be open to all.
The new pavilion in downtown Lake Stevens; The Mill and the new surrounding plaza will be used for vendors this year. We are excited to see how we will use this area to enhance the Aquafest experience. Part of the "plaza" is known as "Mill Spur" which the new festival street. It is under construction now and should be ready before Aquafest.
Application deadline is June 1, 2022—We often sell out earlier than that. Space is limited, so send your application early. Prior year vendors responding by April 1, 2022 will receive priority acceptance and space assignment. After April 1, 2022 all applicants will be included as first come, first served.
Vendors provide their own table(s), chair(s), pop-up tent, displays, weather protection, etc. If we cannot approve your application, you will be contacted immediately.
