Exhibitors and Vendors for the 2017 Austin Powwow

November 4, 2017

 

Great Promise for American Indian is accepting waiting list applications for the 2016 Austin Powwow and American Indian Heritage Festival.  The Austin Powwow is the largest single day powwow in the country, with crowds of 40,000+.  If you would like to be considered to be an exhibitor or a vendor, here is the procedure:

Indian Market Exhibitor:   Exhibitors in the Indian Market must sell authentic Indian made arts and crafts.  This is a two step process.  An applicant first sends in a waiting list application along with color photos of the goods he or she will be selling.  The application is reviewed for appropriateness, and if selected, a formal invitation will be issued as space becomes available.  Note that being on the waiting list does not guarantee a space in the Market, since Great Promise receives more applications than it can accommodate.  Early application increases your chances of being accepted.

To get an application, call (512) 371-0628, or send an email with your name, address and phone number to info@austinpowwow.net.

Food Court Vendor:  To participate in the Food Court, a vendor must sell at least one authentic American Indian food.  Preference is given to vendors who offer a wide range of authentic foods.  This is a two step process.  An applicant first sends in a waiting list application along with color photos of his or her booth setup.  The application is reviewed for appropriateness, and if selected, a formal invitation will be issued as space becomes available.  Being on the waiting list does not guarantee a space in the Food Court, since Great Promise receives more applications than it can accommodate.

Note that Great Promise does NOT accept applications for the following:

  • A vendor that sells only frybread or “Indian tacos”;
  • A vendor that sells only confections or desserts;
  • A vendor that sells only drinks.
  • A vendor that sells only non-Indian foods.

To get an application call (512) 371-0628, or send an email with your name, address and phone number to info@austinpowwow.net.
