Vendor Application Monster Fest 19

Monster Fest is dedicated to celebrate classic horror and horror related topics. While we love Sci Fi, Anime, Fantasy, and other genres we will choose the guests and vendors that most closely represent the spirit and theme of Monster Fest.

This year is shaping up to the best yet!


Thanks to our Sponsors!

Monster Fest is free. Vendor tables are free and attendance is free. Partially this is thanks to the Chesapeake Public Library allowing us to use their facilities and we are so happy to be there! The other expenses to put on this event come out our pocket or from generous Sponsors like these:

Also a huge thank you to the many vendors who go out of their way to donate and/or make items to add to our charity raffle basket or for contest prizes! Please be sure to shop with and support our vendors throughout the day. They are small businesses, nearly all of them are local, and I guarantee they have cool stuff!
