Please note that construction is completed on the Katy City Hall. Work is now underway on some of the street projects and this has necessitated that we remove some booths. We encourage you to carefully review the 2017 RHF Vendor Map before selecting your booth location(s) for this year. We will notify our vendors that you have been accepted for the 2017 Katy Rice Harvest Festival and the booth series you are confirmed in. As an example if you want a booth on the west side of Avenue B between 2nd Street and 3rd Street, for your first choice, indicate 900 series, if you want the east side of Avenue B between 2nd Street and 3rd Street, indicate 950 series. Once the street construction is complete, we will assign the booth numbers for each vendor and send you the confirmation for the actual booth number. We do not anticipate confirmation of actual booth numbers until the end of September.
