From Annual NC Rhododendron Festival Website:

The NC Rhododendron Festival draws thousands of visitors from all over the region and features the Rhododendron Festival Pageant, the Craft Fair with food vendors, children's activities, and live music throughout the day, as well as a classic car show, a 10K run, 2 nights of street dancing.

Our yearly show offers exhibitors of talented local and regional artists & craftspeople and showcases a variety of musical performances. The Rhododendron Craft Fair, which is open to the public and free of charge, takes place along the banks of Cane Creek, which winds through the center of the beautiful and historic small mountain town of Bakersville. It has become a local favorite with artists and visitors alike; many returning year after year.

We invite all local & regional artists, craftspeople, food vendors, and other commercial vendors to apply for space at the NC Rhododendron Festival Craft Fair, held along the Creek Walk on Friday, June 19th, and Saturday, June 20th, 10am to 5pm.

All food vendors must also fill out the Temporary Food Establishment Vendor Application (below) and return it to the Mitchell County Health Department. Non-profit food vendors are not required to remit the $75 food permit fee, but ARE required to submit the form.
