Thank you for your interest in being a vendor at the Taste of Maplewood Street Festival! The Taste of Maplewood is a culmination of Maplewood and Richmond Height’s most renowned restaurants, beloved boutiques, and unique specialty stores.
Since the event’s inception in 2009, we have been committed to preserving the integrity of the event and the spirit of the Chamber, by limiting vendor opportunities to local businesses in Maplewood and Richmond Heights, and membes of the Chamber.
