Vendors sought for 2011 Got to Be NC Festival

RALEIGH – Businesses, organizations and concessionaires looking to make contact with thousands of festival-goers at the Got to Be NC Ag Festival can submit an application to be part of the May 20-22 event at the N.C. State Fairgrounds.

“The festival attracts families, young adults and seniors from urban and rural communities, and is a great opportunity for area businesses to gain exposure among a diverse group of North Carolinians,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler.

Indoor and outdoor vendor spaces are available. Exhibit space costs $35 per front foot, with a $350 minimum.

The Got to Be NC Festival will feature a carnival, live music, food and wine expo, Carolina Fiber Fest, tractor pulls, draft horse pulls, classic car show, a barbecue cook-off, fish fry and more.

Festival hours are 9 a.m. to midnight May 20 and 21, and 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. May 22. Gate admission and parking for the festival are free.

Other events at the fairgrounds that weekend include the Raleigh Summer Boat Show and Sale, Wake County 4-H Horse Show, District 4-H Horse Show, Carolina Roller Derby and the Raleigh Flea Market.
