Artist & Food Vendor Information for 2019

Artist registration will be open on Thursday, May 30 from 6-8 pm and Friday, May 31 from 6:30 am - 9 am. Registration is in the Washington Square Mall (please use the west Mall entrance). Directions, click here  

NOTE: Food vendor registration will be 3-6 pm Thursday, May 30 so they can get electrical hook-up and inspection completed.

STILL A BIT NEW:  With the beautiful fairly new downtown streetscape, we need to have ONE WAY traffic during load-in and load-out. We love our new streets so please help us keep them nice! More details and instructions when you register. Thanks!

ALSO WE'LL BE OFFERING T-SHIRTS! You asked for them, we got them! Order your own 2019 Street Faire at the Lakes t-shirt in fun color that's still to be determined, but might look something like below! $15 each. Order by May 12. Shirts will be at registration desk for you. Order here: 

-Artist Registration -
Thursday, May 30 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
AND/OR Friday, May 31 6:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.

  1. Park outside Faire event grounds while registering. Washington Avenue closes and with the ONE WAY traffic for load-in, it's imperative that vendors are not in the way.

  2. Go to Registration located inside the Washington Square Mall. Look for signs directing you to Registraion.

  3. Bring: Photo ID, License Plate #s, Vehicle Registration Form (if not already sent in)

  4. Then follow directions for ONE WAY load-in.

  5. How to make it easier on yourself --

    • Be sure you've already sent us your insurance and sales tax info and even your vehicle registration form. For more information or questions, contact Rachel Hofstand at or 218-844-4221 x117.

    • Be kind. We're all volunteers and doing the best we can!

    • We will not open registration until 6:00 p.m. So, please don't stare in the windows at us. We're not trying to make your life difficult -- just the opposite!
