Please read the information below carefully - when you agree to the Terms & Conditons on the
Vendor Application you are agreeing to abide by the conditions below
The Sharon Springs Festival does not accept applications from vendors who sell products that are not handcrafted and/or not made in the USA.
Notice to First time applicants, please include a thorough description of your products and photos of booth set-up (first-timers only).
Vendors do not have exclusive rights to the sale of any particular item.
The Festivals will continue Rain or Shine. NO refunds will be given due to inclement weather.
Vendor information packets will be sent to vendors' e-mail addresses. The packets will contain
instructions and information about what to do and where your space will be on the day of the Festival.
Set-up for all vendors is on Saturday from 7AM to 9:30AM. Please note: the festival will end at 5PM on Sunday. NO EARLY TEAR-DOWNS! “Sold-out” signs will be provided to vendors whose products sell out prior to 5PM, but the vendor booth MUST stay intact! Although we don't want this to happen - anyone who shuts down early and leaves early - creating a "hole" in the continuity of the Festival -- will not be invited to return to future festival.
72-cancellation hour notice is required. We have a vendor waiting list and your spot will be given away. Once application is accepted by juried selection, the fee is non-refundable.
When you check in at the location of your booth, there will be a volunteer to tell you exactly where your spot is. When un-loading, you will be able to get as close to your location as possible. We ask that you unload quickly and move your vehicle to Vendor Parking before 9:30 am. This is imperative - we are using private property and in the case of some locations, the property belongs to businesses who need parking for their guests.
Also important - When you move your car, the Festival committee has paid to have shuttle buses at a designated spot to bring you back to your booth location. Please read your Vendor packet carefully for instructions - we want you to be able to get back to your booth to setup as quickly as possible.
The Festival Committee does their best to get volunteers to help our vendors unload and get to their spaces as fast as possible. If you are disabled, we will do our very best to accommodate, but suggest you consider bringing help if it is very difficult for you.
We hope you understand that people who help at the Festival are volunteers who are doing their best to give you a positive experience. If you have a complaint, please do not argue with the volunteers - ask them to contact an organizer to address your concerns.
SET UP BEGINS at 7am. Because vendor spaces are located on private property we are unable to accommodate vendors who want to set up any earlier than 7 am.
ALL VENDORS must provide their own attractive shelter with business signage and proper tie-downs. Be preapred for any type of weather. We DO NOT supply tables or other fixtures for your booth.
The size of each booth is 10' x 10' (ten x ten feet). If you should need a larger space, you will need to pay for an additional 10' x 10' space.
All booths are set up on grassy areas.
This is VERY Important! Tents are not to be used as accommodations. Our festivals happen primarily through the generosity of private businesses and individuals. Their privacy and rights are of utmost importance to us and we are committed to protect this. Security is on duty during the festival, including night time hours. If you are concerned about your products, please pack them up and secure them in your vehicle. Lists of accommodations are available on this site and if you are planning on needing to stay overnight, please book your rooms early. We appreciate your concerns, but ask that you respect our rules to insure that our festivals can continue.
ALL FOOD VENDORS must meet all local regulations and must have any required permits and licenses needed.
All business' are responsible for sales tax and must have their own liability insurance.
As we are a green community, and it is more efficient, we ask that you use our online form to obtain your booth and ad space. Thank you!
