Our event will be held June 15th-17th, 2018 at Fiddlers Grove Campground in Union Grove, NC!

Our set up a bit differently from what some may expect. Since we are a music and ARTS festival, we encourage as much visual art as we can through vendors, work shops, and exhibitors. This means we look for local painters, sculptors, photographers, multi-media vendors to spot light every year.

This year we are looking for the following spots to fill (please note we do have a limited number of spots and they are confirmed and held when payment is received).

  • Clothing
  • Jewelry
  • Vintage & Junk Vendors
  • Painters
  • Sculptures
  • Glass Artists
  • Screen Printing
  • Instruments
  • Hula Hoops
  • Child-related crafts

If you feel like you would benefit from our event; please contact Lauren at [email protected]! We look forward to seeing you at this year’s Groverfest!

Festival attendance is around 800-1000 people on average and sponsors will have the support of our attendees from here on out. In addition to live music, we have vending, arts & crafts and various art related exhibitions. Our focus is good music & fun in a family atmosphere.

Sponsors play a vital role in supporting Groverfest every year. Likewise, Groverfest plays a vital part in supporting our sponsors. Our annual festival attendees support many different businesses from across the state throughout each year. From beverage companies to musical equipment manufacturers, apparel vendors, local businesses including restaurants and taverns; all are part of the Groverfest sponsor family. With your support, we will help to provide Groverfest with the capital to start planning and getting things in place to make sure the festival goes well!!

Each sponsor will be provided a 10×10 area for the weekend-long festival so you can put your face in front of your customers and gain more exposure. We encourage you to bring an EZ-up along with promotional materials (stickers, flyers, etc.) and products (koozies, t-shirts, etc.) to give away so that you may promote even further directly to the festival attendees. A booth space will be provided (area only, we will not provide EZ-Up) to those sponsors who want to take advantage of this added opportunity to promote your goods. Along with being on the festival grounds to directly promote to your customers, we will use your logo on print media and on the website and facebook pages to maximize your visual exposure.  Thanks and we look forward to another great year and a great festival!!!
