Vendor Info

Vendor space is limited and is being offered on a first-come-first-serve basis, There is no fee for vendor space. Vendors must register before the event to be guaranteed space. Vendors will need to provide their own tents, tables, etc, and food vendors will need to obtain permits from the City. There are a very limited number of spots with power or water, so we recommend you bring small generators for fans or lights they may want or need to use. To register, call The Garage at (432) 701-0588, or fill out the form on the event page. Vendor types are limited: no duplication of products or services, so the first to register for a particular type of item will be the only vendor selling that item.

Sponsor Info

Some of these musicians are traveling many miles to come to Fort Stockton. A $150 sponsorship will help pay for the expenses of one artist, but any amount you can contribute will be greatly appreciated! All sponsors will be featured on promotional materials, including flyers and banners, as well on the event website.

Donations can be made by cash or check at The Garage, or mailed to:
