Be a Vendor

Last Year’s Mardi Gras Y’all was one of Nashville’s largest and best attended street festivals with over 35,000 revelers in attendance. This year, we are expecting even more partiers to descend on Riverfront Park for the much anticipated Mardi Gras Y’all 2015!

We’ve added a stage on the river and a karaoke stage as we as ordered a bigger stage with better sound for the 1st Avenue music experience. We’ve more than doubled our VIP space and are tripling the number of food and beverage service areas from last year’s festival.

Folks who vended last year will tell you that the action was non stop from the time the gates were open until we kicked the last person out. To take part in Mardi Gras 2015 fill out the form below and submit your payment.
