A Natural Hair Festival
Become a Vendor
Thank you for your interest in participating as a vendor at SOulFully Textured, A Natural Hair Festival on Martha's Vineyard. The Festival is an important space for people of color to come together and to feel seen. SOulFully Textured events are proven to be successful venues for small businesses to showcase their products and services to consumers ready to buy from businesses that cater to their specific needs. We are excited to share an opportunity for innovative small businesses to showcase their products and services to a targeted audience of natural hair enthusiasts. The third year of this empowering event will take place, for the first time, on the island of Martha's Vineyard on Saturday, August 13, 2022.
By participating in SOulFully Textured, you will have the opportunity to increase sales and your client base. Our attendees desire products and services that are meaningful and designed to empower them in all aspects of their lives in order for them to live their best lives. They are coming to experience the newest trends in healthy hair care, beauty, and fashion; learn tips on healthy living, embracing self, and financial security; and to celebrate all the textures of the natural hair culture. We accept a variety of vendors with a goal to maintain a balance between the various types in order to offer the widest selection to our attendees.
The Festival venue, Waban Park, is walking distance (0.4 miles) from the Oak Bluffs ferry terminal and a short taxi ride from the Vineyard Haven ferry. Because the venue is within walking distance of the Oak Bluffs ferry terminal and a short taxi ride from the Vineyard Haven terminal, you can take the passenger ferry which does not require a reservation. We do not recommend bringing a vehicle to the island. Taxis meet incoming ferries, you can take the #13 Bus from both on-island ferry ports, or walk from the Oak Bluffs ferry port. In addition, the Steamship Authority has luggage carts to help transport your items on and off of the ferry. You can find out more information in their FAQs here under baggage or call the Steamship Authority. Our Vending Package includes a table and two chairs so you will NOT have to transport these items to the Festival. You are permitted to bring your own tent no greater than 10' x 10' for sun and rain protection. Vending set up will be between approximately 8 -10:30 AM, and break down between 4-5:30 PM.
For further details on Vending at the Festival, please see the Rules and Regulations. Food and Beverage vendors are not permitted.

Do I Need Lodging? August is a very popular time on the Vineyard. We designed the Festival as a one day event in order to avoid needing lodging on the Vineyard. However for those wanting to stay near the Festival venue, we recommend staying nearby on Cape Cod and taking one of the ferry services over the day of the Festival.
