On behalf of the Board of Directors, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to be a part of this year’s Multi-Cultural Festival of WV, Inc. MULTIFEST WILL BE CELEBRATING OUR 33rd YEAR, four (4) days, AUGUST 3 – 6, 2023 on the Levee at the Haddad Riverfront Park, Downtown Charleston, WV. By being a vendor, you will be joining the largest and one of the longest-running diversity festivals in the State of WV. Multifest is a non-profit organization that seeks to enrich & enhance multiculturalism in the lives of those we serve in our community. This is done by providing a venue to celebrate diversity for all citizens through art, music, education, cultural programming, ethnic cuisine, and more.
For the 2023 Festival, we are looking forward to interacting with all of you and many new concessioners. We understand because of the pandemic and other contributing factors, there has been a great increase in cost for products throughout the Country. Because of such, you will see a slight increase in our fees as well as an increase due to the extension to four (4) days of the festival.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are in hope of a great festival, but we also must comply with the CDC guidelines and Government Protocols. Therefore, you must read the entire vendor packet information, which includes deadline dates, requirements, and fees. You will also need to sign the agreement along with your vendor application. DUE TO 8ft SPACING between food vendors, we will only be accepting a certain number of vendors, which will be on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS. We will be using a large portion of Kanawha Blvd. to comply, therefore, please know everyone WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE CLOSE TO THE MAIN STAGE AREA.
Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you in advance for wanting to be a part of Multifest 33 in ’23.
Again, welcome and we look forward to hosting you!!
