Downtown South Bend events attract thousands of guests annually, bringing people together and creating a vibrant atmosphere. Come be a part of the action!


DTSB accepts both nonprofit and for-profit vendors at First Fridays and the Summer Film Series. Fees vary based on vendor type. See application for details. 

Applications for Art Beat artists will be open March through May and can be found here.  If you're interested in having a booth at any other DTSB event not listed above, email Kylie Carter at for more information.


Vendors will need to provide their own tents, tables, chairs and tent weights. Food vendors will need to fill out a temporary food permit with the St. Joseph County Health Department, which can be found here.


Vendors will be assigned a 10x10 space unless they indicate a different size is needed. Spaces will be assigned by event staff/volunteers first come, first served during event setup. Vendors will be emailed their event setup and parking info by the Tuesday prior to the event.


Vendor applications are due one week prior to the event, with the exception of food vendors, who will need to apply at least two weeks prior to the event. Payment needs to be made by 5 pm the Monday prior to the event in order to receive a space.  Payment can be made online prior to the event at this link .


NEW - Due to the increase in number of vendors and amount of electricity needed, we are no longer able to provide electricity and vendors will need to bring their own generators. This is due to recent issues with overloading the power grid on Michigan Street and blowing the circuit.


DTSB (Downtown South Bend, Inc.) reserves the right to limit the number of vendors with similar products/services, and accept/deny any vendor. Nonprofit vendors are encouraged to have a value-add or activity that corresponds with the theme. DTSB will not be held responsible for any damages, theft or injury to any person or persons attending, buying or selling at events. DTSB discourages vendors from distributing messaging designed to induce conversion to a particular faith, support for a candidate or political party.
