Vendors and Merchants are a part of the scene at the Muster on the Wabash.  The presence of period merchants helps to create an atmosphere of a busy and happening place during the 1811 era.

All vendors must display and sell only goods appropriate for the period surrounding the War of 1812 (see below for a partial list of items not allowed). Vendors not adhering to this requirement will be asked to remove items from display and may not be invited back to future events.

Period Traders must fill out and sign the vendors permit. The forms must then be mailed along with the $30 fee to: Muster on the Wabash, Vincennes State Historic Sites, P.O. Box 81, Vincennes, IN 47591. First time vendors are asked to include pictures of their setup and a brief description of sales items.
