Vendors Wanted For 39th Annual Popcorn Festival


It’s our biggest event of the year, and arguably the best in the region, and we want you to be a part of it! The Valparaiso Popcorn Festival comes your way Saturday, September 9, and we’re looking for vendors who want to take part in the celebration.

For 39 years, the Popcorn Festival has been a Northwest Indiana institution. As the long-standing and largest one-day event in Valpo, over 50 thousand people attend annually. From live entertainment to the nation’s first Popcorn Parade, there’s something for everybody to enjoy.

But a big part of what makes the Popcorn Festival is its vendors. All throughout the Downtown area, more than 250 booths line the streets. Food booths, arts and craft makers, commercial businesses, clothing designers, and more. You name it, you can find it at the Popcorn Festival.

This is where you come in.

As we begin preparations for its 39th installment, we’re looking for vendors who want to be a part of it. Whether you’ve been coming out for years or this is your first time, this is a great opportunity to market your business, to immerse yourself in the city that we love, and more importantly, to see the very best of our community. Remember, previous years’ vendors have until March 31 to register and pay to guarantee their previous spot.
