ESSENCE Festival 2018 Vendor Applications Are Now Available!


Vending is the ultimate way to take your business to the next level and we’re personally inviting you to set up shop at the 2018 ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans, taking place July 5-8. 

Our Shops At Essence Marketplace is a unique space to showcase and sell your original apparel, jewelry, accessories, home decor, fine art paintings and other artistic products to thousands of attendees each day. Meanwhile, our ESSENCE Eats Food Market will provide an opportunity to serve your signature dishes, while our Community ESSENCE Corner will put your non-profit, grassroots organization, college or university, or governmental agency in front of a massive audience.  

There’s nothing better than getting your product, service or organization in front of thousands of new potential customers or members who are eager to support your hustle or your cause. 

Check out the video above to hear some of today’s most inspiring entrepreneurs share how vending is the key to growing a new business and then click HERE for more information on how you can apply to be a 2018 ESSENCE Festival vendor or exhibitor.

See you in NOLA!
