FAQ’s for JunkFest Shoppers
Where is JunkFest located?
Foster County fairgrounds is where we call home. We’re on the SW side of Carrington on the corner of 16th Ave S. and 4th St. S. From Hwy 200, turn South on 19th Ave, drive 3 blocks and there we are! From Hwy 281, turn West on Main St, then left on 16th Ave. S. You can’t miss us!
What are the sale hours?
JunkFest runs from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Admission and entry are on the East side of the fairgrounds. "Pre-pay" admission tickets can be purchased at www.facebook.com/junkfest or you can pay $5 at the gate. The gate opens promptly at 9:00.
Is there admission?
Yes...$5 gets you in the gate to shop over 100 vendors, eat some amazing food and listen to the best junking music you ever did hear! Money well spent!
Can I bring my pet with me?
Unless your pet is a service animal, we ask that you leave them home. JunkFest policy specifies NO PETS. We love our fur babies too, but it’s unfair to your pet, as well as other shoppers, to subject them to the large crowds. We appreciate your adherence to this policy.
I forgot my checkbook! Now What?
We’ve got you covered! You’ll find an ATM machine in the hallway connecting the JunkFest building and the Food Building.
I can’t find my favorite vendor!
Make sure to grab a shopper’s map at the admission gate! All of the vendors are listed there!
What if my arms are full and I’m not done shopping?!
No worries! We offer a “holding area” that is run by a local fund-raising group. For a donation, they will keep your paid purchases secure until you’re ready to head out. Just pull up to the loading zone, near the holding area, and pick up your belongings. (See map)
Plan to come early and stay all day! Free parking, food for every palette and toe-tapping tunes by the MoonCats will have you dancing in the dirt!
