Turtle Fest Vendor Application

Turtle Fest 2023


Dear Vendor;

Hello from Perham, MN home of the tremendous Turtle Fest!

We would like to invite you to participate in this year’s Turtle Fest Street Fair and celebration held in downtown Perham.   This year our event will be on June 14-18th with our street fair being set up and held Friday and Saturday (June 16th and 17th)

This year we are excited to grow and expand off our past street fairs and offer even more to guests attending this year’s Turtle Fest. 2019 was the first time in years that we were able to close down Main Street in Perham to offer a street fair filled with fantastic vendors as well as live music, kids activities, a petting zoo, food vendors, and a shrimp and seafood boil! In 2023, we have even more, including expanding our vendor spots on Main Street, expanding food options, live music on both Friday and Saturday, and so much more. For the kids we will have the petting zoo set up for longer hours, bouncy houses, kid’s games and activities throughout the weekend. For the adults there will be music, bingo, street dance, food and of course, the most important part of the festival- all the wonderful vendors!!

I invite you to read through the enclosed vendor application and return it at your earliest convenience. We have adjusted the application process this year and now require approval from us before we accept payment for the space. If approved you will receive a confirmation email along with an invoice requesting payment.

We look forward to hearing from you and please do not hesitate to pass on the exciting news to any vendors you may know about!  Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have as well. You can reach me at 218-346-2202 or you can email me directly at northpinesmarket@gmail.com

Thank you!
