Info for Food Vendors

After two years of COVID cancelations, we are proud to present the Maplewoodstock Festival on July 9-10, 2022.

Food vendors:  apply now!



We are planning for an estimated 5,000 attendees over the weekend. As you may know, this is one of the few family-friendly music festivals in the area. Families with children will enjoy art, games, live music and food.


  • Exposure to an estimated 5,000 attendees;
  • Your own 10’ x 10’ space to display and sell your food between the hours of 12 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., rain or shine.

Registration fee is $650.00 for the two days. (This represents a one-time, post-pandemic $100 discount.)
