Tribes Hill Music Festival


We want you to be part of the first annual Tribes Hill Music Festival at John Jay Homestead in Katonah, New York, scheduled for Sunday, September 14, 2014, from 11 am to 6 pm. The goal of the Festival is to introduce as many people as possible to the music community that is -- Tribes Hill - and to the beautiful grounds of the John Jay Homestead.

As a vendor sponsor, you are welcome to reserve space by returning the enclosed registration form. We expect the Festival to draw several hundred people from around the Hudson Valley to spend an afternoon in the outdoors listening to a great group of performers, including our headliners, Red Molly and the Sloan Wainwright Trio. You will be listed in the festival program and on the website. Festival attendees can also enjoy song circles and activities for children. We will have food, arts & crafts, and public service exhibitors.

The festival will provide you with one eight-foot table and two chairs. If you need additional space or have other requirements, please contact us

We are moving towards Zero Waste at the festival. As an incentive to Vendor Sponsors, we're offering free consultations with Lea Cullen Boyer to help you get set up to be a Zero Waste Vendor. Our goal is to help you save costs and be ready for the Festival.

So that we may plan effectively, please return your completed registration form by August 15, 2014. Once we have determined the full list of vendors, we will assign space and notify everyone prior to the Festival of their exact location. Festival staff will be available on the day of the event to assist you in finding your location and in getting your materials moved and set up.

The music will run from noon until 6:00 PM on September 14, 2014. Vendors must be set up and all vehicles removed from the festival grounds by 11:00 AM. A nearby parking area will be dedicated for your use. More detailed instructions will be provided upon confirmation of your participation in this year’s Festival.

Location of Vendor Space

Please do not set up your space in a location other than that which has been assigned to you.

Feel free to accessorize your space in any way that seems appropriate. Some items that you may want to consider include:

Tablecloth/skirting for table



Weather Considerations

The weather in the Hudson Valley in mid-September can be unpredictable, but the Festival will occur regardless of the weather.  There will be a large tent that we will utilize in the event of extreme weather.

Also, consider ways that you can secure any handouts and flyers you may have so that they do not blow away if it is windy. Rocks, bricks, boots or other such paperweights may do the trick.

Thank you for your participation and help in making the Tribes Hill Music Festival a success. Should you have any questions, please contact us at
