Vendor Registration – Iowa Lawn Party Food Vendor

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Winefest Board of Directors decided to reschedule festival dates to ensure the health and safety of our supporters, patrons, sponsors, and vendors. We are continuing our efforts to give back to the community and an opportunity for you to be a part of Winefest. Thank you for your support. Please always feel free to call or email me with questions.Natasha Sayles

Believe it or not, this year’s Winefest is right around the corner! We hope you will be able to join us as we celebrate the wine and culinary industries.

We hope you will join us for our ninth annual Iowa Pork Lawn Party. We created this event to showcase local products and it has been a huge success with more than 600 attendees last year!

At the Iowa Lawn Party, local food vendors – along with wineries and breweries from across the state – are invited to share samples of their products to show attendees how great it is to eat and drink locally. In addition to the variety of Iowa food, wine and beer, the event will also feature live music from a local Iowa band.

Tickets will be $15 in advance or $20 at the door with a maximum number of 700 distributed. We have limited booth space, but we will be able to offer a stipend to each vendor. And this year we are excited to announce that we have INCREASED THE STIPEND TO $500! We are also moving the location to the Salisbury House – this year is sure to be full of new excitement from vendors and attendees. Below you will find the registration form for Iowa Lawn Party, please fill this out and return to Winefest Des Moines by July 30th, 2020.
