The Town of Forest City hosts several events at POPS that require vendors, and we strive to offer our attendees a diverse selection of unique wares and exciting products that they may not be able to find elsewhere.

If you are interested in being a vendor, please fill out the following application. Your application will be kept on file and reviewed for each event that requires vendors. If your application is accepted for an event, you will be contacted by email and asked to fill out an additional application for the specific event. You will also be notified about the vendor fee and any additional information about the event. Vendors will be admitted based on space availability and product distinction.

The Pavilion On Park Square (POPS) has been cleared to open with a reduced capacity – currently set at 1,250. Everyone on the Town of Forest City team is excited to welcome guests and live events back to this special place.

Throughout the season, all events will be held in alignment with government guidelines. While 1,250 is the number we are currently allowed to have, event capacities may be updated and hopefully increase throughout the summer. Please know that the decisions to hold, cancel or reschedule events are at the discretion of Town staff, in conjunction with artists and acts, and they will be making decisions for future events closer to the show with an eye on how COVID-related conditions are improving.

What is the same:

  • Friendly Town staff and volunteers to welcome you to our venue
  • Unique, safe and family-friendly events at our state-of-the-art amphitheater
  • Concessions sold by Explore Forest City
  • Soaking up the energy of a live performance

Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout this entire process. Be sure to follow our social media for updates. Stay safe and we can’t wait to see you soon!
