How to Become a Second Sunday on Main vendor:

  1. Read the 2015 SSOM rules & guidelines (PDF).
    **Past vendors please note there are some changes to the vendor policy this year.**
  2. Submit your application one of two ways:
    – If paying fee by credit card: register online with the Over-The-Rhine Chamber.
    – If paying with cash or check: visit Rock Paper Scissors at 1301 Main Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202 during normal business hours (see Facebook for their hours).
  3. Pay your vendor fee at the time of application submission.
    A 10’x10′ space is $20 per event or $60 for all five months (rate available through June 14)
  4. Help us spread the word! Like us on Facebook and let people know you’ll be there.
    Please note that we do not send out letters of acceptance since we accept all vendors. All final details regarding day-of information will be sent out one week before the event. Questions can be emailed to the Event Organizer.


Food Trucks and Booths:

Please note we are no longer accepting new food truck vendors for the 2015 season.

Second Sunday on Main has limited space for food trucks and will make decisions with regard to seniority, creativity, ties to the Over-the-Rhine community, and ability to commit to all five dates. Food vendors – those with food trucks, carts, or food prepared on site – will be charged a $200 fee to set up for the season.

Those vendors selling packaged goods, such as baked goods and jams, or fresh produce may apply as a normal vendor.

We are looking for volunteers for all activities: set-up and break-down, vendor support, beer pouring, and much more!

Second Sunday depends on awesome volunteers to make the event run smoothly. Help out at a great neighborhood festival, receive discounts at select Main Street businesses, and earn a million good karma points!

Volunteer Opportunities

Beer Ambassadors

Rally your community group or organization to help us pour beer at Second Sunday, and your group will get to take home the tips from the day!

Volunteers needed: 2-3 volunteers per shift; we recommend rotating shifts every couple hours.

Bonuses: Each volunteer receives a complimentary beer, and your group’s cause will be promoted on Facebook!

Day-Of Volunteers

Help us set-up and tear down the festival! Friendly faces who don’t mind being on their feet are needed for various day-of tasks, including setting up barricades and signage, assisting vendors load-in and out, and tearing the whole kit ‘n’ caboodle down at 5 PM.

Bonuses: Volunteers receive a complimentary beer from the beer garden as well as discounts from different Main Street shops!
