Selection Criteria & Applications

How we choose exhibitors and how to apply

Applications for pitches for MKFoodFest on 19th September 2020 are now open. Below is a summary of the selection process, pitches available and fees.

Selection Criteria For Exhibitors

Applicants are selected in order to provide a good range of stalls for our visitors and to ensure that vendors are not competing with too many similar stalls, therefore you may not be allocated a place if we have already confirmed similar businesses. You may also not be allocated a pitch if we have filled all the available spaces in that area of the festival so early application is recommended. You will receive an email to confirm or decline you space within a month of your application.

We review applications once a month so it may be up to a month before you hear back from us depending on when you applied.

Please note:

  • We have no availability this year for a Processo bar as this will be provided by the venue.
  • Do not try to pay for your pitch at this stage. You will receive details of how to pay in your acceptance email and you will need to pay within 14 days to secure your place.

20 Mile Radius

In general, no applications will be accepted from a business whose registered business address is more than 20  miles from the festival venue as the crow flies. Exceptions to this are usually only granted if the applicant offers something that is not available more locally.
