The Cambridge Arts River Festival is back in person for the first time since 2019. The annual celebration of arts, food, and culture is attended by over 175,000 people. The event features staged and roaming performances, family entertainment, interactive arts, food, and fine arts and crafts.

We are currently recruiting vendors for the festival’s Arts Bazaar and World of Food vending areas.

The Arts Bazaar is a curated marketplace for a wide range of items both domestically made and imported from around the world that are representative of the many ethnic and cultural backgrounds found in Cambridge. We accept vendors who sell unique, high quality, one-of-a-kind, original and/or handmade works.

The World of Food is one of the most popular attractions at the festival. It features international cuisines, healthy choices, and festival favorites. We prefer vendors who sell just a few items, arranged to be served quickly and efficiently.

Repeat vendors will be given priority consideration but must submit as early as possible to receive this benefit. If multiple vendors want to sell similar items, we will work to minimize duplication and/or decline applications that offer overly similar items.

We look forward to reviewing your applications!
