Festival Vendor Information
All of our vendors are selected by the Moundville Native American Festival Committee. All arts and crafts are to be handmade or hand produced (i.e. stringing a manufactured pendant to make a necklace is acceptable as a “hand produced” item). Either the vendor must be an enrolled member of a Southeastern Indian tribe OR a majority of the items sold must relate to Southeastern Indian culture. In compliance with the Indian Arts and Crafts Act, only card carrying members of state or federally recognized tribes can label their items as “Indian” or “Native American” made. A vendor committee will inspect your booth during the festival. Vendors are located in two locations throughout the festival, Artist Row and Knapper’s Corner.
For information on consideration on becoming a craft vendor please contact Lisa Rasco firstname.lastname@example.org or Lindsey Gordon at email@example.com
