Irving Accepting Applications for 2018 Event Vendors

Polynesian dancers perform at the 2016 Canal Fest.

The application for vendors to sell food, crafts and other items at Irving's 2018 citywide special events is now available online. Vendor spaces are available at several events throughout the year, including Canal Fest, Taste of Irving and Irving Main Street Event.   Vendors are classified into one of the four groups listed below, and event availability differs for each vendor category.  Vendor applications will be reviewed weekly, and approved vendors will be notified via email.  Full payment is due within 10 business days of approval notification. 


Vendor Categories

  • Artisan Vendor
    • Vendor must create the products to be exhibited or sold (at least 75 percent original products).
    • This includes handmade or custom art, jewelry, clothing, accessories, furniture, decor, toys or similar items.
  • Community Vendor
    • Information, resale and local businesses.
    • This includes independent consultants/direct sales, nonprofit organizations, locally owned Irving-based businesses, and the sale of manufactured products and prepackaged food/beverage items.
  • Commercial Vendor
    • Chain retailers, regional/national corporations, and businesses based outside of Irving.
    • This includes electricity/internet/phone service providers, health care institutions, memberships/rewards clubs, travel agents and other retail or service providers.
  • Food Vendor
