Vendors wishing to display large animals (alpaca, llama, yak, etc. – NOT sheep as  they are shown in the Breed Display)  as part of their exhibit may have an unpaid 10×10 space for the animals if the vendor provides health papers, proof of rabies vaccination at least 2 weeks prior to the Festival and a pen with water and bedding.   Vendors wishing to include a large animal display please request animal space on your application (you will be located in Barn 3).
Please note that camping is for vendors and demonstrators only.

Terms and Conditions (including details of site/ general vending information).

You will be notified via email of payment/ acceptance/ assigned location within 2 weeks of receipt. 

  • Spaces for vendors who have participated in the Festival for multiple years and GSSB members who have indicated they will vend in 2020 will have their spot held/reserved until Jan. 31, 2020.  At that time if payment has not been received their spot will be released. 
  • Since the GSSB seeks to encourage local (NJ, eastern PA, southern NY) farmers and handcraft artisans working with fiber, we will give priority to new vendors meeting this description up until May 31, 2020.  At that time if there are still open spots, we will fill spaces with other vendors.
  • Location numbers have been assigned to open spots for easier specification of the spot you want to reserve on the application.  The barns will be filled beginning with Barn 3 then Barn 4 if you do not specify a location.   The 2019 Vendor list with links to 2019 barn layouts are available on this web page.

Layouts and the application will be available in Nov.

Tips for completing application:

    1. When entering your website address please include https:// or https:// or you will get an error.  If you don’t have a website, enter http://njsheep.net
    2. If sharing, one vendor should select the total size space and pay, and the other should select “Sharing with Another Vendor $0”.

2020 Application
