CALLING ALL VENDORS & ARTISTS
Festival Dates for 2020 are final! Join us September 12 & 13.
Our goal each year is to celebrate Denver area community bands and highlight our Highlands Ranch community. We want an event where local bands can come show off their talent. We invite vendors that will benefit from our type of event to join us. The Highlands Ranch Concert Band uses this event as a fundraiser so that we can continue to offer free concerts.
Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. The Festival Marketplace presents a variety of vendors, featuring artists and artisans, retail services, and a wide variety of foods to entice the family. Space is available for 50 or more vendors.
You are welcome to submit your application at the link below.

How to Weight Your Tent
The location of the festival, Civic Green Park, does not allow stakes in the ground to help hold down your tent. This is a city ordinance that we cannot ignore. If you use stakes, your security deposit will be forfeit. Our suggestion is to use weights to hold down your tent. Here are some pictures for your reference:
