Get involved as stall holder
Toitū te Taiao - Our Planet, Our Future
Thank you for your interest in participating as a stall holder at our unique festival!
This year’s Festival is dedicated to environmental care and our part in looking after it. We are consciously making choices which address the health of our planet while celebrating the people who are already taking a stance and doing the ‘right thing’. Riverside Music Festival does not want to dwell in some fatalistic doomsday mood, but instead showcase how community spirit, creativity and conscious choices can positively alter the future of our planet and children.
We would like festival stall holders to share in the spirit of rasing awareness on the environmental status quo and in building community support for changing the future.
INFORMATION for stall holders selling LOCAL ART & CRAFT: We have limited spaces for people selling predominantly locally produced art and craft and other unique products. We are looking for vendors who are offering items that add to the range of choices in buying or exchanging sustainably sourced and crafted products or any other things that offer interesting options for sustainable living. (Please no plastic or green washed packaging.)
INFORMATION for stall holders selling FOOD & DRINKS: Food plays a key role in our lives. What we eat, where it comes from and how it was produced has a major impact on our health and well-being but also on the environment. We therefore wish to offer festival-goers a variety of healthy, locally produced and sustainably sourced food and drinks which can cater for diverse dietary requirements.
We invite all stall holders who can contribute to the spirit of the festival by offering sustainable, locally made and healthy choices to fill out the form below. We also encourage each vendor - as part of their set-up - to publish their own story and to share information on their products which enourages constructive Climate Emergency dialogues. This also provides a great chance for stallholders to promote their business. Riverside's marketing manger will also share online links to your businesses in the lead up to the festival.
This is a Zero Waste event and we ask all stallholders to refrain from bringing disposable AND compostable items. Re-usable cups, plates and cutlery are fine. There will be a dish-washing station on site where people can also loan dishes for the day.
If you are selling items in cans or bottles please take the empty ones away with you. We will ask people to take such items back to the stalls where they came from so no rubbish is left on the grounds.
This is a Zero Waste event and we ask all stall holders to use sustainable packaging only!
