Be a vendor at the San Diego Jewish Food Festival

We are planning for an attendance of 2,000 people for the San Diego Jewish Food Festival (SDJFF) in 2017, which will again be produced by an all-volunteer team. SDJFF™ is a unique gathering featuring a wide array of ethnic Jewish cuisine and culture open to the entire community.

If you are interested in participating in the SDJFF, please fill out this application form (pdf) and submit it with your payment. You will receive an email confirming receipt of your application and your participation. Vendors will be given priority booth assignments based on the date of sign up and payment.

Placement of vendor space is based on the date of application submittal AND payment. Sign up as soon as possible, as once we meet the vendor quota, space will be closed. Vendors must provide their own pop-up/canopy.
