I attended the Mothman Festival on September 17th and 18th 2022 in Point Pleasant, WV. Once again, this was another event that has been missed since 2019! Three loooong years later and it was FINALLY back, and let me tell you what, it definitely showed. This was the biggest/best event yet. I can't really say much more than what I have said before, other than make a ton of inventory and expect the unexpected. I am going to copy and paste my same tips and advice from years prior!
Mothman Festival is held on Main Street in Point Pleasant, WV. As a vendor, you will arrive around 3 or 4 to set up. Expect Friday night sales! 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 did not proved tables this year, so bring your own just to be safe. 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.
