Jubilee Vendors

Be part of one of the Midlands' most-anticipated festivals as a vendor or artist at Historic Columbia's 43rd annual Jubilee: Festival of Black History and Culture on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2021.

Historic Columbia is inviting local businesses, associations, churches, civic/service groups, health/medical organizations and other non-profits to participate in this year's Jubilee. Vendors will have the opportunity to showcase their unique wares at the long-running festival.

“Having local vendors at Jubilee who focus on African and African American food, wares and topics enhances the mission to promote Black history and culture at home,” said James Quint, Historic Columbia Director of Education. “The event also provides opportunity for attendees to shop local and perhaps connect with their neighborhood businesses.”

The cost to participate is $25 for non-profit vendors, $75 for marketplace vendors and $150 for food vendors. Spaces are limited and reserved on a first-come, first-served basis, once approved by the Jubilee steering committee. Additional items such as electricity, extra tables and extra space are available for an additional charge of $15-$25.

The deadline for registration is Thursday, Sept. 8, 2021. Applicants are encouraged to complete the vendor application online.

Now in its 43rd year, Jubilee, a free outdoor festival, brings musicians, artisans, dancers and storytellers together to celebrate South Carolina’s Black history and culture on the grounds of the historic Mann-Simons Site at 1403 Richland Street. This year’s event will run from 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
