Vending at NLQP


Vending at NLQP

Nelson Ledges loves vendors who bring unique merchandise to our small slice of earth.

What would an event at Nelson Ledges be without a walk down Shakedown Street? Nelson Ledges is host to a wide assortment of vendors, some of which have been with us over 10 years and are simply part of the family. * Fees secure a 10' x 20' lot to be used for vending only.

Merchandise & Food Vending

While we welcome new additions to our vendor family, we only permit one of each specialty. Management must therefore approve all vendors in order to maximize profits for each.

Merchandise Vending: Standard Fee: $100.00 3-day Event or Special Events (High Attendance): $150.00-$200.00

Food Vending: Standard Fee: $350.00 3-day Festival or Special Events (High Attendance): $500.00 -$800.00

Early Arrival & First Come

Because the entire park is first-come-first-serve, we strongly advise you to setup your operation well in advance of the festival at hand. The bigger the show, for example, the earlier you’ll want to setup your site. To claim a spot for one of our larger shows, you’ll want to setup at least three days beforehand. The smaller the show, however, the more likely you are to find plenty of room to setup just two days before.


No Reservations

We do not reserve spots for vending

We do NOT reserve either vendor sites or camp sites, so again, please be sure to setup days in advance. Upon arrival, you’ll pay for your wristbands at the gate. You can then choose a site that best suits your needs. You’ll then pay your vending fee to our general manager, Kristina Kelley, when she visits your site to collect these fees.


No Camping at Vending Booths

No camping at your vending site

Because primitive camping is prohibited by law at any site other than a designated camp site, we’re sorry to say that you cannot have tents or campfires either in or around your vending site. You will therefore have to setup your living accommodations at a regular campsite in either the family-camping area or one of the wooded areas specifically designated for this purpose.
