Applications are live for vendor opportunities, the Legendary Lentil Cook-off and other activities at the 2018 National Lentil Festival, to be held in August.

Spaces are available for food vendors, marketplace vendors and nonprofit night vendors. The nonprofit night will only be held on the Friday night of the festival, and spaces are $70. Marketplace and food vendor spaces are sold as two-day spaces with varying prices, and all spaces are 10-by-10-foot and sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Interested individuals are encouraged to enter their original lentil recipes to the cook-off for a chance to win up to $2,000. Recipes should not exceed 15 ingredients and must include at least one cup of cooked lentils, a half cup of uncooked lentils or a half cup of lentil flour.

Registration is also open for the Tase T. Lentil 5K Fun Run, grand parade and Lil' Lentil royalty.
