Organizers for the popular Crabapple Fest are already looking for vendors.
Applications to vendors looking to participate in the long-running festival are now available online. The event, organized by the city of Milton and the Crabapple Community Association, will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4 along Crabapple and Broadwell roads.
Organizers have their eye on vendors who specialize in 19th century American Country furniture, primitive antiques, shabby chic items and unique pieces of art in all mediums - oils, photography, jewelry, textiles, pottery and quilts.
Spaces are limited, so residents are encouraged to apply early. The festival will once again feature antique vendors, local juried artists and merchants from all over the southeast, children's rides, games, a full day of entertainment and local food.
Last year's event had more than 15,000 attendees, which was the biggest festival turn out in Milton's modern history.
Vendor fees are tax deductible as the Crabapple Community Association is a chartered, non-profit organization. Proceeds benefit local community programs, scholarships and non-profit charities.
