The events will allow families, clubs, churches, civic organizations, schools, as well as a variety of merchants and vendors from all over the region to participate in the fun and excitement of the St Patrick’s Day Celebration’s and contribute in a very special way to the community’s effort to raise money for Wakulla County Citizen needs.

Entry Requirements for the event: As space is limited and because we want the festival to have a certain character, we reserve the right to turn down vendors with certain types of products such as those you would expect to find at a flea market or those that we feel might be offensive to members of our community. We prefer handmade arts and crafts and unusual manufactured products, public service and non-profits. Of course, we have food vendors.
Food Vendors for the event: We will limit the food vendors to avoid having too many selling similar products. If you are a food vendor, we encourage you to submit your application as early as possible. You must specify the top three products you plan to sell. Also, you must include the size of your rig and electricity amperage you require on your application. We will do our best to fit you in but must know your size to for planning purposes.
