The Kootenai Harvest Festival is seeking unique food and homemade crafts vendors for its third annual celebration on Saturday September 16, 2017 from 2 p.m. – 8 p.m. at Riverfront Park in Libby, MT. Now in it’s third year, the Kootenai Harvest Festival celebrates locally grown food, handmade crafts and healthy lifestyles in the communities of northwest Montana on the banks of the Kootenai River. The Kootenai Harvest Festival will feature live music by Billy Powell and the Dodgy Mountain Men, and a locally-sourced dinner with vegetables grown at the Libby Community Garden for $10 a plate. Admission to the Harvest Festival is free to the public.

Local vendors of all types are encouraged to join the festival to sell their products to an expected audience of about 400 – 500 attendees. The cost for vendors to participate is $15 flat. Vendors are asked to sell locally made or grown products, and comply with Montana State farmers market food vendor regulations. Vendor set up will begin at noon on Saturday, and the park must be vacated by 10 p.m. on Saturday, September 16, 2017. Vendor applications can be found online at wildmontana.org/harvestfest and are due by August 1, 2017.
