The Lincolnton Food, Wine & Brew Fest is a celebration of everything local. From the produce in the farmers market to the live music in the air, the day features the best talent, creativity, products and services from the region.
We are seeking NC Wineries, Craft Breweries and area Food Trucks with eclectic cuisine. Last year, our food vendors SOLD OUT and our Wineries and Breweries served up gallons of libations one taste at a time. We encourage wineries and breweries to bring inventory for selling, as many folks also purchased by the bottle last year.
We are also seeking unique and original local Artists and Vendors. This is a juried art event consisting of a four member panel. All items should be handmade/original goods. No mass produced or manufactured items will be allowed and, of course, we do not permit the sale of counterfeit goods or products.
For the farmers market, we are seeking vendors offering locally made products and consumable items – including, but not limited to, jams, sauces, canned goods, infused oils & vinegars and natural soaps. Food items are limited to packaged goods. No served-on-the-spot food or drinks. Farmers and growers are invited to sell produce, plants, honey or any locally grown goods that showcase the region’s agriculture.
Music & Entertainment
If you are a local musician or part of a band, we want to hear from you. We will be featuring a ‘Talent Showcase’ all afternoon. We are seeking a wide range of genres to share the covered stage throughout the day.
PRIZES: We will have special guest judges who will decide first, second and third place (PRIZES: first – $500, second – $300, third – $200). Audience members will vote for a crowd favorite by donating monies to a prize pool. Winner receives half of the total collected and the other half will be donated to a local homeless shelter.
If your business or organization does not fit in one of the above categories, you can still be a part of the day. This event is ultimately a fund raising event for the Downtown Development Association of Lincolnton (501(c)3). You will receive complimentary tasting passes, VIP access, recognition, visibility to thousands and much more!
