Become a Vendor

An exciting new event is coming to Coudersport this summer. Eliot Ness Fest/Touched by the Untouchable is scheduled for Friday through Sunday, July 20-22, 2018. This festival will celebrate the historical legacy of Eliot Ness, who spent the final years of his life in Coudersport. His name is known far and wide as a symbol of courageous and effective law enforcement. The story of Eliot Ness and his Untouchables has been circulated around the world in print, stage and screen.

Local merchants, community leaders and historians have established the Eliot Ness Fest to celebrate the life and career of the crimefighter while taking Potter County back to the Prohibition Era. The weekend will be filled with prominent speakers presenting fascinating programs, character actors, lively “street theater,” a vintage car show, parade, fun events for both adults and children, and more.

The Eliot Ness Fest Committee is looking for vendors for the weekend. In keeping with the theme of the weekend, we are specifically looking for vendors who can creatively incorporate Ness, The Untouchables, the Prohibition Era of the ‘20s and ‘30s, etc…into their goods.

Potter County Artisans and Food Vendors are encouraged to apply despite the ability to incorporate the theme.

Vendor applications will be reviewed by the Vendor Committee and determinations will be made by June 27th.
