All businesses interested in being a vendor at the Buy Michigan Now Fall Fest must either sell Michigan-made products or only promote services. To be considered, each must first submit an application. If selected, they will receive an email invitation to reserve a space.
Unlike many other fairs and festivals, all of the businesses exhibiting at the Buy Michigan Now Fall Fest must meet one of the following criteria in order to participate:
- Operates entirely in Michigan
- Headquartered in Michigan with additional operations outside the state
- Michigan-owned franchise or affiliate: some fees or revenue paid out of state
In addition to seeking only Michigan-based businesses, priority consideration is given to companies physically producing merchandise within the state, which is why it’s a great place to discover new tastes and products. All of our vendors will either be selling products made in Michigan or services provided by a Michigan-based business, keeping more dollars inside the state.
If they have not already done so, prospective vendors are also highly encouraged to join the Buy Michigan Now Campaign so that we are able to help promote their businesses year-round.
