All food vendors must have biodegradable/ compostable service wares. (Paper plates, boats, cups, bowls) Ukiah Paper Co., Cash n Carry and World Centric are a few places to purchase biodegradable service wares. Thank you for helping us, help our earth!


Only 2 people will be allowed to camp in/behind the craft booth. All vendors in the “island” area, and all food vendors will be placed in the vendor camping area. No tents behind food booths. No vehicles will be allowed behind or in any booth space.


Basic electricity will be available for all vendors. Let me know what your electrical needs are if you require more than basic lighting.


Historically food vending at Reggae on the River has been an opportunity to support local non-profits. As an evolution of this concept we ask that commercial food vendors choose a Humboldt/Mendocino local non-profit to donate a portion of its proceeds to. The Mateel is generating a list of local non-profits to choose from so that we may assist you in this process. Please read the terms outlined in paragraph #5 of the signatory page of the application before confirming your commitment to our charitable mission.


All applicants will be juried. Jury will happen about one week after the deadline. Acceptance letters will go out the following week, if a vending space is available. Fees will be collected after acceptance, and must be paid in full by July 1st.


1 pass will be given to crafters and 2 for food. $20 for any extra parking passes. Limit no more than 3 passes per booth. No RVs or ATV are allowed. RV spaces must be purchased in advance. Roll-ins will not be accepted.


2 come with a craft booth and 8 come with a food booth. Crafters may purchase up to 2, food up to 4 more at half price. If you need more we ask you to buy a GA ticket at local outlets or online and it will be exchanged for a vendor pass at vendor check in.
