Call for Vendors: 2018 Ranch Hand Festival Seeks Entries for Food and Crafts Booths

The Annual Ranch Hand Festival planning committee is now accepting applications for food, crafts and retail vendors. The annual event, which draws visitors from across the Coastal Bend, celebrates the city’s historic legacy from the ranching days of Wild West to the diverse cultures that now call Kingsville home.

Coinciding with the King Ranch’s annual Ranch Hand Breakfast, the community-wide event seeks to draw visitors to the city’s Historic Downtown district where local museums, artists, businesses, community organizations, vendors and the university work together to provide cowboy-themed entertainment and activities and showcase all that Kingsville has to offer. Last year’s event included food, live music, cooking demonstrations, art, storytelling, book signings by local authors and more. In addition to becoming a huge attraction, the festival is also a fundraiser for local businesses and organizations.

Whether you’re looking to sell delicious cowboy cuisine or some cool country crafts, we invite you to join us as an official vendor for this year’s Ranch Hand Festival on November 17. Download and complete the application below and return with payment enclosed to the City of Kingsville and mail to Tourism Department, 1501 N. Hwy 77, Kingsville, TX 78363.  If you’re unable to download application, please call 361-592-8516 and one can be sent to you.
