-Reminder; spaces are now 20 feet wide by 10 feet deep. Some may be deeper on the outside rows.
-Although you may make a request, you are not guaranteed the same vendor spot as previous years.
-Remember electricity is only available to food vendors. Please fill out the electricity information when you sign your vendor application. For local groups, please list any coffee makers, roasters, crockpots, etc. that you plan to use. We will be monitoring electricity use and keeping extra appliances to a minimum.
Please have ALL raffles, 50/50’s, drawings, etc, drawn and announced from the bandstand on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. after the Hairy Women of Klipnocky Beauty Contest and before the Car Show awards at 3:00. We feel this gives a central location for the drawings and they can be announced as they are drawn, in front of the crowd. Please consider this when making your raffle tickets.
We would like to be able to offer vendor coupons to our festival attendees as we have in the past. Would you, as a vendor, be willing to participate?
How it works: Vendors fill out coupons that are good for the Festival weekend only. The Festival staff makes announcements from the bandstand to give the coupons away. For example, “The first person with an orange shirt to come to the bandstand wins a free pumpkin from The Pumpkin Patch”. By offering this free item, vendors often make a sale at the same time the coupon is redeemed.
The Coupon: We only ask for 1 or 2 coupons per vendor. The value of the coupon is at your discretion. You can donate full items (small ice cream cone, French fries, popcorn, cookies or cupcakes, pony ride, sunglasses, etc.) or assign a dollar amount to the coupon ($2 off any purchase at your booth). We have provided 2 coupons (one for each day, if you wish) that you can fill out and return to us either by mail with your vendor application or when you check-in at the Festival. Only these original, festival provided coupons will be accepted. All coupons will be printed on this color paper by the Festival staff and no other copies will be used. By offering these coupons, we are hoping to stir up a little excitement at the bandstand and also to increase the traffic to our vendors as the winners (and their friends) come and check out the goods! It’s also a little free advertisement from the bandstand as we give away your coupon. Keep in mind, this is only being presented as a suggestion; you are under no obligation to participate.
