Roc Holiday Village and Organizers Call for Vendors, Merchants and Restaurants to Apply for 2019 Event and Add Another Date to Event

Applications Are Being Accepted

The City of Rochester Roc Holiday Village presented by Five Star Bank is now accepting merchant, vendor, and restaurant applications for the second annual holiday event scheduled for Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from Friday, December 6 through Sunday, December 29.

The Village is also adding another date to its 2019 festivities, Thursday, December 19, making the popular winter event now 14 days including the New Year’s Eve celebration.

“Last year, vendor space filled quickly and many vendors told us sales exceeded their expectations,” said Jenna Knauf, co-founder and organizer of Roc Holiday Village. “This year we have extended our days and hours for shopping in the Village and in The Lodge for food and drinks, presenting an even greater opportunity for regional businesses to showcase and sell their products. We look forward to once again supporting local business, providing a great shopping experience for Village attendees, and making a positive economic impact on the local and regional economy.”

Companies interested in becoming a merchant or vendor may contact Jenna Knauf at Jenna@RocHolidayVillage.com or apply directly online here.

Restaurants interested in becoming a featured pop-up restaurant in the Roc Holiday Village’s The Lodge may contact Jenna Knauf at Jenna@RocHolidayVillage.com or apply directly online here.

Applications may be submitted through Wednesday, May 1.

Specific hours, activities and events, and details on the Roc Holiday Village’s New Year’s Eve Celebration will be announced in the fall.

In the event’s first year, more than 120,000 people of all ages visited Roc Holiday Village in the heart of downtown Rochester at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Memorial Park for skating, shopping, live music, visits and Breakfast with Santa, crafts and more. Pop-up restaurants and the bar in The Lodge were a huge draw all 11 days last year.
