Applications for vendors and volunteers for the 2018 Goleta Lemon Festival are now being accepted. Each year, the Goleta Lemon Festival hosts 70+ booths featuring local non-profit organizations, as well as food, beverage, and merchandise booths selling everything from lemonade and lemon cotton candy in the Community West Bank Food Court to lemon accessories, hats and trinkets.
The Goleta Lemon Festival could not happen without the many volunteers, ages 14 and up, who spend time planning for the festival and lending a helping hand over the weekend. Volunteers are needed to organize the official Lemon Festival T-shirts, sell lemon meringue pie from Anna’s Bakery, clean contestants’ faces after the Pie Eating Contest, and direct classic cars for the 13th Annual Goleta Fall Classic Presented by DCH Lexus of Santa Barbara. Volunteer shifts are Friday 8am-5pm, Saturday 7:30am-6pm and Sunday 8:30am-8pm. All volunteers will receive an official Lemon Festival T-shirt and high school students are eligible for community service hours. It’s fun for adults and students!
As festival guests shop and interact with our Lemon volunteers, they will enjoy live entertainment on the American Riviera Main Stage in a wide variety of musical styles, including Rock, Country, Blues, R&B, and more. In 2017, the Goleta Lemon Festival attracted over 30,000 visitors.
All prospective vendors must submit applications by mail, email, or fax by August 3rd for food vendors and August 31st for non-food vendors to participate in the 2018 Goleta Lemon Festival, which will be held September 29 & 30, 2018, at Girsh Park in Goleta.
