The Reader Riot is hitting the Shoals on April 28-29, and we want you to be a part of the festivities!

Do you have merch to sell, craftiness to showcase, art to panhandle, books to pawn off on the word-obsessed public? Awesome! Fantastic!

Whether you’re an author, a craftsperson, an artist, or anything else, if you have something that would make the Reader Riot even more fantastic, we invite you to set up shop!

We’d also like to invite your organization or club to set up, too. Book clubs, student organizations, non-profits, advocacy groups, whatever. If you need to get the word out to our Rioters, we’d be happy to have ya!

It’s only $50 to set up and riot with us!

For $50, you will get a 6′ table (provided by the Reader Riot) under one of our large, community tents. You will be set up in a kind of Author’s Alley bazaar, where you can interact with Rioters and other vendors, making friends and selling your swag.

We do ask, however, that you limit the number of people in this space to 2.

For the moment, the community table is full. We are still accepting applications in case spots open up, and there are still some $75 plots in Wilson Park available.

For $75, you can snag your own independent plot of land in Wilson Park!

We have a limited number of independent spaces available for vendors, too. These come with a single 6′ table provided by the Reader Riot, and you can do what you want with the space. You can pop up your own tent, have a pow-wow with your readers, put up a petting zoo of your delightful guinea pigs, whatever you want.

If you need a tent, let us know, and we can help ya out.

Ready to set up?

If you’re ready to riot (or have any questions!), just fill out the form below, and let’s get this party started!

Fine Print and All That Fun Stuff

Please note that the Reader Riot will consider all requests for space, but may not be able to accommodate every one. If you have any questions or special needs, please feel free to contact us (or just go ahead and fill out the form above! What have you got to lose?)

The Reader Riot does not offer refunds on vendor reservations and are considered donations to the Florence-Lauderdale Public Library. The festival will be held regardless of weather, and it will be up to each individual vendor on whether he or she sets up. The vendor area of the Reader Riot is an outdoor, community event.
