Just a few reasons to participate in the NEON Salsa Festival:

Great publicity! Last year we had over 500 attendees!

100% of proceeds ($1 entry fee) go to benefit Boise Farmers Mobile Market.

New! No need to provide staff. A volunteer will serve your salsa if desired, and we will even come pick it up! You are welcome and encouraged to serve your own salsa as you will always represent your product best!

Connect with other local foodies and vendors.
