Summerfest Arts Faire.

Summerfest is an arts festival held annually in beautiful Logan, Utah. Summerfest 2019 is June 13-15. It was established in 1983 and attracts over 60,000 visitors. The festival features fine arts and crafts, a plein air Event, culinary arts, and performances by regional and local entertainers. Summerfest is committed to providing quality cuisine items that are “something different” from the everyday norm of food choices. We accept applications for food vendors and specialty drink vendors. Food vendors may not sell drinks with their food, as bottled drinks assist us in raising funds for the event’s continued success.

Date and Location

Setup begins on Wednesday, June 12, beginning at 10am.
Festival dates: June 13-15, 2019
Vendors must be set up and ready to serve by lunchtime on Thursday June 13th.

Festival hours are Thursday and Friday, June 13th & 14th from 11 am to 10 pm, and Saturday June 15th from 10 am-9 pm. Summerfest is held—rain, heat, or shine—on the Historic Tabernacle Grounds in the heart of downtown Logan, 50 N. Main St. Our office is located at 69 E. 100 N., across from the Tabernacle Block.


The food committee will jury for uniqueness, quality, and variety as well as price. With only 21 vendor spaces available, we insist on quality and professionalism because we consider you a partner in our success. All vendors compete annually for selection. If you are selected, the food committee has the right to disallow individual food items. Previous participation is not a guarantee of acceptance into this year’s festival. Cache County Health Department is very proactive when it comes to public health, and any issues they raise must be resolved.


• Food vendor applicants must submit a color photo(s) of the booth setup or a sketch if a photo is absolutely not available, along with dimensions of your required space. The dimensions must include extensions such as trailer tongues or hitches, and amount of space required for storage of items such as supplies, propane tanks, etc. We also ask that you submit a menu with prices to use on the website.

• Food vendors are responsible for conducting their own sales. It is your responsibility to collect and report sales tax. If you are accepted, sales tax information will be available upon arrival at the festival.

Food vendors must sign a hold harmless agreement (included with application).

• Upon acceptance, food vendors must supply a certificate of insurance (for a minimum of $1,000,000) for the dates of the festival, and current food handler's permit and event permit from Bear River Health Department. Do not send the documents until you have been accepted into the event.

• Accepted food vendors must display a sign at the festival listing approved food items and prices.


Food vendors may not sell tea, coffee, water, frozen juice treats, or drinks of any kind. Please do not give away any of these items as a package deal with your food. Specialty drink vendors may sell their specialty drinks only, not soda or water. Summerfest operates soft drink/water booths as a way of raising revenue for the festival. This is strictly enforced! If you have any questions about what this policy means for your operation please ask before submitting your application.

Please recycle!

If you fail to be checked out by our staff, your space is not completely cleaned, or if there is any damage, the refundable portion of your deposit will be retained (please see contract for details). Cleaning includes thorough removal of grease, sugar, or other spills on the asphalt. Your space should look just like it did before you set up your booth there.
