GO Fest Vendors

Exhibitors are the heart and soul of GO Fest, inspiring festival-goers to live healthy and active lives outdoors by bringing unique and exciting activities and delicious food to the festival.

GO Fest 2021 is October 15-17th. Vendor hours are Friday: 5-8pm, Saturday 10am-8pm, Sunday 10am-5pm.

New this year! GO Fest is moving from the River’s Edge Park fields a mile up the road to downtown Roanoke. The move is a big deal for our local economy and we think vendors will find some great opportunities with the new location. For your purposes, please note that vendors will be positioned in Elmwood Park along the Fountain Walkway (ideal for 10 x10 spaces) as well as along Franklin Plaza (ideal for vendors who will want their vehicles onsite). Please be sure to consider which location would be best for your organization so you can communicate that with our team.

Also new is our online vendor portal. This is an opportunity to have your information published on the public side of the GO Fest website with photos and links to your website, social media, and more. On the back-end, you’ll have the ability to track your application status, easily edit your activity listings, and ensure that your layout requirements are communicated clearly.

If you’re ready to sign up as a vendor or at least get started talking with us, go ahead and reach out to let us know now. Please note that sooner is better!
After your application has been reviewed, you will be notified by email if you have been approved for a spot and we will work with you on activities, space requirements and more.

Fees are coming soon, if you have questions, please reach out to Kelly Brammer, vendor coordinator at kelly.brammer@roanokeva.gov.
