APPLYING TO BE A HEALING ARTS PRESENTER IN ADDITION TO VENDING: If you are accepted as a Healing Arts Vendor and you would also like to offer a workshop (which is wonderful & amazing to offer both) you will not receive an additional presenter pass. You are already in the festival as a vendor.

PRACTITIONER VENDOR BOOTH FEES:  The booth fee is $300 for a single practitioner, per festival, or $455 for a shared booth, per festival. This includes use of a single 10×10 space, admission to the festival and camping permit for the practitioner(s) only. Within two weeks of announced acceptance, all booth fees and assistant ticket fees will be due to confirm your registration.  No credits or refunds after registered acceptance.  Booth sharing is based upon approval by the Healing Arts Director, with a limit of 2 practitioners per booth.

SHARED BOOTH:  Up to two practitioners may share a 10X10 booth space to offer services. Both practitioners must fill out an application & submit certifications (if needed). Sharing practitioners may practice simultaneously, together, or in shifts.  All practicing healers must apply and be accepted/registered as practitioners.

ASSISTANTS:  Upon acceptance, booth practitioners may purchase up to two (2) discount assistant weekend tickets ($130 per assistant), which must be purchased in advance with the booth fee. Any other festival-goers accompanying you must pay full admission price. Anyone accompanying you age 10 yrs or older is considered an assistant, including your spouse. A working partner is not an assistant; in this case, you must apply for a shared booth.

DISPLAY SPACES:  Display spaces are exactly 10’ x 10’. All canopies and booth displays must present a professional, exhibit and fit inside this size space. Booths/Tents must be STAKED DOWN with spiral dog-ties to ensure safety through in-climate weather. BE PREPARED FOR SEVERE WIND, RAIN, ETC. No refunds will be given for booths/displays that have been damaged due to bad weather.

Single practitioners may apply for a maximum of 2 spaces side by side (no extra canopies behind booth). Booth fees apply per space. Only land is provided. NO tents, tables, chairs, signage or electricity outlets are provided by LEAF.

ACCOMMODATIONS:  Tent and vehicle camping is permitted in designated on-site areas. Most booths have space for a small tent behind. Free on-site parking in the Vendor Lot for 1 vehicle ONLY. All others must park in satellite lots (lot 6 – The Moon) or reserve on-site car camping for an additional fee. 3 shower-houses are located in camp. Shared cabin bunks are available for a fee and are reserved in advance only. Call 828-686-8742 to reserve a space. All spaces may be sold out before acceptance notifications.

PRODUCT SALES:  Practitioners who wish to sell products in addition to services may apply to do so if products are handcrafted by the practitioner and are used in conjunction with the healing modality and if they comprise no more than 20% of the booth. There is an additional $110 fee to sell the products.  Please email photos to info Vendors@theLEAF.org or mail samples of your products when you submit your application.
