Vendor Applications are open! APPLY HERE
Winter Fest in 2018 saw 10,000 visitors over one weekend.
For Winter Fest 2019 we are partnering with The Gateway to realize an exceptional Winter experience over three weekends.
The Made in Utah Winter Fest will take place in three different venues : 10 S A and B, and 10 N Rio Grande Street. Every space will have a bar serving hot winter drinks.
We will close Rio Grande Street to traffic, invite food trucks in, and serve hot drinks. We will place outdoor heaters and tall tables throughout the street. So the visitors can enjoy holiday decorations and lights, music, and stop at different venues to shop for gifts, food and drinks.
The goal of this event is to encourage Utah residents to shop locally for this year’s holiday gifts in a fun and welcoming atmosphere, listen to music by local artists, and all with a drink in their hand. Cheers!

Selection Process: The submission of any vendor application does not guarantee a spot in the winter festival. Every application will be reviewed by the Made in Utah Festival team before selection. Please, make sure to attach a short bio, photos and/or social media links for your products in the application form. If an application is accepted, the vendor will be notified by email between September 23 and Nov 15, with a link to the online registration form included. Then, an invoice with the respective booth price will be sent to the accepted vendor. Space will not be secured for any vendor until all their balances are paid in full.
Fees: Payments are due by November 15. If payments are not received when due, Made in Utah reserves the right to remove any vendor from the festival and give their space away.
Vendor Space: Accepted vendors will have to bring tables that fit in the designated 8x5 spaces. Each vendor is responsible for providing their own equipment (tables, chairs, extension cords, cookware, etc). No tents are allowed inside the venue. We encourage vendors to decorate with festive decor, and we also ask for flexibility with any display plans.
You will be able to leave your setup over night, and possibly during the week if attending more than one weekend.
For Food Vendors/Restaurants Only: We do not allow open flame equipment inside the venue in order to prevent fire hazards. Also, if you are cooking with grease you must bring grease floor mats to prevent any splatters. Let us know beforehand if you will need electricity. Propane tanks are not allowed.
Set Up and Break Down: Space locations, set up times, and parking information will be included in your Vendor Handbook Packet—which you will be emailed two to three weeks prior to the event. Vendors are responsible for set up, take down and all delivery, handling, and removal of artwork and/or products. Volunteers will only assist with locating your space as well as addressing special needs that you may have throughout the event. All vendors must not leave their products unattended and they cannot close or breakdown before the official end of the festival (9 pm on Saturday or 7 pm on Sunday).
Insurance: Vendors are required to display all licenses, certifications, and permits required by Salt Lake City, including mobile, fire, and health permits. It is the vendor's responsibility to ensure they and their employees are at all times in compliance with any Federal, State and Local regulations, tax laws, and health protocols.
Requirements: All of the vendors have to make sure that they have all permits required by the state. Utah Stories and Made in Utah team are not liable for the consequences of the lack of proper documentation.
Promote their presence at the event on their social media.
Decorate their vendor space in holiday decorations.
Cancellations and Refunds: If you cancel by November 6, 2019 you will receive up to 80% of your payment. After November 6, 2019, refunds will not be issued.
