BASE COST, ADDITIONAL FEES, & HOW TO PAY:
To exhibit all vendors are required to have a transient vendor’s license (it costs $25.00 to obtain one) this allows you to sell at a public venue, and the city does come and inspect frequently. A copy of your vendor’s license is due at the latest, the Monday before the event (you can still send in your app with payment while you await the license to arrive). You can find the form to obtain a license here.
There are two options in regards to space and cost to participate in this event:
• $150.00 this includes an outdoor 10x10 space. Vendors are required to provide the following for outdoor spaces: 10x10 tent with staking/weights (the event space will be held on grass) and any tables and/or chairs you would like to use in your tent.
**PLEASE NOTE, FOR OUTDOOR SPACES WE DO REQUIRE TENTS, IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A TENT, YOU WILL NEED TO GET ONE TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS EVENT. IF YOU NEED TO PURCHASE ONE, WE RECOMMEND AMAZON. THEY CAN BE PURCHASED FOR AS LOW AS $63.99.**
Please note, your uploaded application/contract must accompany your fee and will not be considered complete until both are received.
Deadline to register for this event is either till we are full, or the Wednesday prior to the event, whichever happens first.
Participating vendors will receive a 10x10 space to utilize, outdoors we require tents. Please be aware that the space is just the 10x10 space, vendors are required to provide their entire setup.
Custom Table Sizes and Covers.
If you have a custom table size and need to bring a table to the venue, please contact us.
Table covers are not provided, vendors must provide their own if desiring to utilize one.
If you require more than one 10x10 space, please feel free to register for multiple tables. Each additional space and/or table is an additional booth fee base cost as outlined above.
