Shop. Eat. Experience.


Products TO a captive audience?

Vendors are welcome at Rock-N-Q on the Planes!

We are allowing outside vendors, as well as our BBQ teams, to vend to the public. This includes retail products, clothing, non-barbecue food items, hand crafted creations, and more. We are anticipating thousands of people in Great Bend, Kansas for this three-day weekend and vendors have the opportunity to capitalize on this opportunity to move some serious product.


Vendors turn in their receipts at the end of the weekend and submit a 25% commission to the event organizers, with proceeds benefiting the Destination GB efforts to improve the City of Great Bend and future Rock-N-Q festivals (Destination GB & Barton County Fair).


Every vendor receives a 10' x 10' space and access to electricity if needed. There is not really a limit on how many vendors we can accept because of the expansive outdoor venue where this festival takes place. Our licensed perimeter for alcohol sales is over 440 acres if that gives you any idea of the size and scope of this event venue! Join us for an epic weekend in Great Bend, Kansas!
