Hello Friends of Penn Cove Water Festival

Click on image to see letter.


Food Vendors must have and display at their booth an Island County Temporary Food Service Permit See more information in the FOOD VENDOR APPLICATION

Arts and crafts offered at the Festival must either be hand made by Native Americans, or be hand crafted and reflect inspiration from North, Central or South American indigenous cultures.

We will NOT accept mass produced imported products. Please be sure your merchandise meets this criteria.

The Festival welcomes high quality art and craft products that reflect indigenous American cultures, but not produced by Native Americans, provided no false claims are made about their origin.

Penn Cove Water Festival


In keeping with our mission, we invite Non-Profit Organizations to bring an exhibit that gives Festival goers a chance to learn about, appreciate, and protect the environment in which we all live, as well as about their own health and safety.

There is no charge for exhibits and displays. However, we do expect them to be manned to enhance their educational value, and they must remain up until 5 p.m. Spaces are outdoors on Alexander Street. You are responsible for providing your own canopy, table and chair. There is no electricity available.
