A. Yes and you’re encouraged to! We will have tables and chairs near the food court in a covered tent but it is first come, first serve. It’s recommended you bring your own chair and find your perfect spot!

Vendor FAQ's

Q. Will there be someone who can help to unload my car and set up my tent.

A. We wish we could help, but we don’t have enough volunteers to offer that service.

Q. I organize my booth in such a way that I need to setup the booth as I unload the car. Is that okay?

A. Our festival is in a beautiful, but small setting. It gets very congested with cars. You must unload your boxes & tent, move your car and THEN come back to setup.

Q. I read that I only get one vendor parking pass! Please send me another one, I must have a second car.

A. Two passes are provided per vendor booth. We can not provide additional passes. However, additional cars can park in general parking which is just a little farther away than our limited vendor parking. One of our volunteers will direct you to both parking lots.

Q. Why do I have to wait until 5:30 PM to bring my car to my space? The festival closes at 5:00 PM!

A. This is a safety issue, we need to ensure that attendees have vacated the festival area.

Q. I would like to trade in the non-tasting tickets you are giving me, for tasting tickets.

A. Only two tasting festival tickets are provided but additional tasting tickets may be purchased in advance at: gloucesterwinefestival.com or at the gate the day of the festival. We do not offer a special trade-in price.

Q. Can I request a particular space in advance? I was a vendor last your am I guaranteed to have the same space.

A. No, we would like to offer this but we must position vendors to create the best experience for attendees.
