    New for 2017

    Due to the nature of this outdoor winter festival and the chance of experiencing extreme winds, snow, rain, etc., the Loveland Fire & Ice Festival Producers are taking extra safety precautions which include requiring all tent vendors to rent their tent set up from the Festival Producers. In addition to addressing these safety concerns, the tent package includes a 10 x 10 tent, set up and take down labor, supporting weights (based on legal requirements), 3 sides, 8’ table, 2 chairs and any maintenance needed during the event. We do appreciate that you may have tents that are themed for your business and product, therefore, we will help you to incorporate your banners and signage in the new tent set up as outside tents will not be allowed.

  • 5 Square footage of space (in feet) that you require or prefer.
  • 6 An itemized description and selling price of all menu items.
  • 7 We encourage you to provide your own electrical power. If it's impossible for you to do so, we have options to provide onsite power for an additional cost. (See Electrical Service Fees below).
  • 8 A $35 non-refundable application fee must be paid via credit card at the end of the online application form.
