Participate in the Wheat Ridge Carnation Festival!

Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved in the Carnation Festival. Support the event as a sponsor, vendor, volunteer or participant. You can enter a float in the parade, your chili recipe in the cook-off or your masterpiece in the art show. We need lots of volunteers for the festival. The Zoppe’ Italian Circus has 7 performances between August 12th – August 14th while in Wheat Ridge and help is needed for ticket taking and ushers (you see the show for free!). For those ambitious types you can volunteer to help with the tent raising for a once in a lifetime experience. Many other opportunities such as Event set-up, Teardown, Vendor load-in and out, Spaghetti Dinner, Chili Cook-off and Hospitality are available to name a few.

Wheat Ridge Carnation Festival Vendor Information

The Carnation Festival brings 25,000+ attendees to Anderson Park, offering a perfect opportunity to put your product or business on display. New in 2016, we will host the Jackalope Art & Craft Fair. Our partnership with Jackalope means that midway vendor availability is very limited, so please apply early to receive maximum consideration, as spaces will go quickly!
