This event is free to the public in order to encourage higher attendance. Festivals of this nature generally have an entrance fee so... please help us promote it!
The information booth will be located in spaces 20/21. Please pick up your registration packet and fill out the tax form and return it BEFORE you begin selling.
** Vendors may set up between 7:30 AM to 11:30 on Friday, March 9th. Please be ready to sell by noon. We will be setting up on Thursday night so no one is allowed to set up during that time. No refunds after March 1st. 50% refund between February 15 and March 1st. Please be courteous and let us know if you won’t be able to attend.
** Booths assignments will be based on booth size preferences listed in the vendor application. If several vendors request similar booth sizes and we don’t have enough to go around, preference is then based on when application was received.
** Pay booth fee at time of registration. 2017 vendors are automatically accepted (with no setup photos needed). New vendors will be accepted upon approval.
** There will be 3-foot pipe and draping separating the booths. Those in spaces 22 - 31 will also have 3-foot draping at the back of the booth. Spaces A - L and 1 - 21 will have the wall as a backdrop.
** Electricity is available to vendors in spaces 1 - 21 (one outlet per space). You'll be responsible for bringing your own power cords and power strips. We request that all power strips have surge protectors. NO extension cords are allowed without being plugged into a surge protector.
** The building will be locked and secured Friday evening. Doors will be open for vendors again on Saturday morning at 9:00 AM. Please be packed up by 8:00 PM on Saturday night.
** Although this may seem obvious, we ask that vendors be courteous and friendly with other vendors and the public. Please be set up on time and don’t take down your booth until 5:00 PM on Saturday. Failure to follow event guidelines will result in vendor not being invited to future festivals. We must be completely out of the building by 8:00 PM on Saturday.
** We encourage vendors to have booth raffles, provide some simple free materials (flyers, handouts, trinkets, etc.) but NO free food! We want our food vendor to do well, too. We encourage vendors to sign people up for your newsletters and set appointments either during the festival, or at a later time.
** For the 2018 festival, we are NOT having a food vendor. We are opening this up to all vendors! If you have something you'd like to sell, please check with the Latah County Health District to see if what you wish to bring is regulated. As long as you have pre-packaged foods that don't include meat or items that need to stay cold, you're pretty safe. But, check with them anyway. If you'd like to bring food, please state what you'll have on the application so we can get that out in the announcements.
** All wall spaces in the main room (1-21) have peg-board as the main backing. For those in the center room, you may NOT use tape, screws, nails, or anything to mount items on the walls. Please bring your own backdrop if you wish utilize the back wall space. The center spaces (22-31) will have a three-foot tall drape and piping system as a back wall. Center space booths may bring taller back separators to give you more privacy since you'll be backed up against another booth. The center spaces are as wide as the standard booths but are 2.5 feet shallower.
** There is NO Internet on site. For those in the center booths that may need to charge a device, you can do that in spaces 20/21 or make friends with a vendor who has electricity.
** Based on the need for more space, we are not having lectures at the 2018 festival. We encourage vendors to choose spaces large enough to provide services.
** Our festival theme is springy in nature. Since it's the end of winter, we encourage vendors to decorate their booths with a spring theme.
