The Kent Downtown Partnership is seeking artists and makers to participate in the 2022 Cajun Food & Music Fest. This is a new community event, open to all ages, inspired by one of Kent’s small businesses Altha’s Louisiana Cajun Spices shop.

 The KDP is now accepting applications for artists and vendors. We are looking for vendors with a variety of price points, mediums, and focuses. Priority will be given to vendors whose items are 60% handcrafted and fit the vision of the marketplace.

  • Priority will be given to those who apply early. 
  • Vendors will be provided a 10×10 space located outdoors on Railroad Ave.  
  • Vendors must provide their own table and/or fixtures and weather protection. 
  • Vendors are required to be set up in their space prior to the opening event and must remain until the event closes. 
  • Vendors are responsible for handling their own sales, booths, and materials. 
  • A booth fee of $150  is due upon acceptance/confirmation by the KDP. There is no application fee. 
  • Booth spaces do not include power; if power is required, inquire with the Program Coordinator.
