SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION DOES NOT GUARANTEE ACCEPTANCE INTO THE FESTIVAL
To apply to Brewgaloo, your business must be independently owned and operated, not of a national chain. No franchises or multi-level sales affiliates will be accepted.
NC Breweries, Cideries, Meaderies, etc.
Brewgaloo is open to all NC based, owned and operated breweries, cideries, meaderies, or other unique non-spirited alcoholic beverage purveyors. At this time we are unable to include distilleries at Brewgaloo.
Triangle Food Trucks, Trailers, Restaurants
Please use the “Food Truck” application if you are an independently owned and operated, Triangle based food truck, food trailer, or restaurant with a tented setup that is preparing and serving food to order. If you are a mobile kiosk/cart or serving pre-packaged items use the vendor application.
Local Retailers – Makers, Boutiques, Artists, etc.
Vendors must be locally owned, independent businesses (no franchises | no independent distributors/multi-level–marketing/direct sales companies, e.g. doTerra, LuLaRoe, Rodan + Fields, Scentsy, The Pampered Chef, etc.). Vendors must have a retail aspect to them and sell tangible goods at the festival. This includes makers, artists, boutiques, and other retailers including those selling pre-made and/or packaged food (bagged chips, popcorn, nuts, candies, cookies, cupcakes, etc.) as well as food kiosks/mobile carts. Service providers are only eligible for booths through sponsorship of the event.
