There are many ways to participate at the Link Net. The Festival offers a unique opportunity for a collaboration of groups such as farmers, urban gardeners, health organizations, businesses, local food advocates, distributors, processors, chefs, restaurants and writers all in the same location.
Farmers and food vendors can offer local food for sale. Vendors are encouraged to offer free tastings and samples featuring locally grown crops to cater to the varying palates of festival-goers. Exhibitors are encouraged to participate by offering participatory demonstrations, workshops and interactive, educational and fun activities for a variety of audiences. New England’s top local breweries, meaderies and vineyards are highlight at our Local Craft Brew Tasting. Contact us today to learn more about how to feature your locally produced beverage. Local arts and crafts vendors may also participate in the festival. Space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Volunteers are the engine that keeps the festival running. We seek committed, enthusiastic and responsible people who would love to contribute, join in on the local food movement, meet new folks, and have a lot of fun! Volunteers are fed and get a festival t-shirt. Complete an application and see how you can pitch in. There are a limited amount of non-profit vendor spaces available. If you are featuring an activity that can enhance the festival, will actively engage festival goers, and is educational and fun, then we would love to hear from you.
Sponsorship opportunities are available to partner with the festival. We seek partners who are committed to the mission of the festival and desire to make a real impact on local economies and communities through their participation in the festival.
