- Craft Vendors
- Food Vendors
- Car Show
- First Responders and Emergency Services Heroes Village
- Florence Fest Chili Cook-Off
- Community Talent Showcase

VENDORS, send in your registration form soon to be assured of a good spot. Spaces will be assigned in the order they are received. If your tent will not fit in a 12×12 space, you will be charged for two spaces. Funeral size tents are larger than 12×12. Tents need to be anchored in place in case of heavy winds. Vendors will supply their own tables, tents, chairs, extension cords, etc. Generators will be allowed, but must be muffled to keep down unnecessary noise.
Don’t forget to join us for the 2017 Fall Festival! It will be held October 30th, 2017 at the Community Center (437 South Church Street in Florence).
