This blog post has taken me a little longer than expected to post because I am getting ready for my WEDDING and my HONEYMOON!
Anywayyyyys, Mothman Festival 2019 was a blast. Mothman Festival is, by far, my favorite and most successful and fun to sell at, and this year was no different than the previous 3 years I attended before this years.
Mothman Festival is held on Main Street in Point Pleasant, WV. As a vendor, you will arrive around 4 to set up. The street will be blocked off, but when you get there simply tell the event staff that you are a vendor and they will let you in and direct you to the spot you were emailed about.
When signing up for the Mothman Festival as a merchandise or artist, you have two options - use their big canopy with less space that is already set up, or bring your own. I always bring my own canopy so my space is slightly less crowded and I have more room to display my work. Mothman Festival staff provides you with one table, but you must provide your own if you need more than one. You also need to bring your own chairs!
Set up is easy if you are able to park close to your spot (which you should). I typically set up my canopy, chairs, tables, tablecloths and any shelving Friday night and set up maybe half of my art and leave the rest in bins in the canopy to finish setting up early Saturday morning.
Here are some tips if you are new:
