Complete Application Form Using PDF

The IIA will confirm your booth reservation after reviewing your application and the food items for sale. You may also complete your application using Google forms.   Our Google forms can now connect you to pay using a credit card.

We want our food vendor menus to build on American Indian and America’s Indigenous foods.  We are focusing on food items such as frybread, Indian tacos, sofkee, three sisters’ soup, stews, buffalo dishes, pemmican, wild rice dishes, succotash, grape dumplings, potato, posole, roasted corn, squash, poyha, etc. Also, traditional drinks such as hot cocoa, Aguas Frescas  Atole, Blue Corn, Herbal Teas.

Food vendors do not have to be American Indian, but we want your menu to focus on traditional Native dishes. This year you can sell sodas and other items as there will be no concessions in competition with our food booths! Despite that new freedom we do not want to have carnival-type foods at this event and would welcome some healthy food choices for our community members who are diabetic or vegetarian. 

Cleburne has great grocery and supply stores available for purchasing your supplies. The venue is only 15 minutes from the nearest store, hotels are even closer with a hospital only 4 miles away. It will be easy for your crew to get in and out of this venue. IIA will be supplying wristbands to everyone on your team; let us know how many bands you will need on your application. Please include children or relatives that will be coming to support you.

Booths must bring their setup equipment, i.e., tents, trailer, tables, and chairs. Electricity is available at this venue! We recommend you have insurance for your equipment as Santa Fe Days and The Chisholm Trail Outdoor Museum venue will not be responsible for any damage due to weather or other circumstances. This will be a rain or shine event. Please plan accordingly. In the event of bad weather, patrons will have tents for eating. For further information, please email us at
