Review Vendor Rules Before Applying
Denton’s Day of the Dead Festival is a fall-themed festival celebrating the many things that fall brings us: the harvest, Halloween, and the Dia de los Muertos celebration. This event will be free and full of activities. Your booth helps us keep this event FREE to the public. Thank you!
Saturday Oct 29th 2022 from 11am – 9pm
Set-up will begin as early as 7am and all booths must be completed by 10:30am
Once approved as a vendor, you will be asked to provide your estimated set-up time. You will then be given a load-in time and location closer to the day of the event.
Industrial Street: $175
Upper Parking Lot: $150
In years past, many vendors request to be placed on Industrial Street, but we only have a limited amount of space on that street. Therefore the placement will go as follows:
You may request to be placed on Industrial in your application. If approved as a vendor, you will pay an increased price of $175. Once those spots are full, the remaining vendors who request Industrial will be notified that is no longer an option. All other vendors will be placed in the upper parking lot between Wells Fargo and the Pumpkin Patch, closer to the coffin races. Those spaces will remain at $150.
