Festival Vendor Information

Craft Vendors

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 member will inspect your booth during the festival. Vendors are located in two locations throughout the festival, Artist Row and Knapper’s Corner.
