Vendor Rental Info
ARENA MAIN ROOM:
~Electricity is available on the entire main floor, however, there is an extra charge for use of electricity which is $20.00. Vendor is responsible for bringing their own electric cord for the use of outlet.
~Wi-fi is accessible and free in this room.
~There are no dressing rooms but if you are selling clothing, there are indoor public bathrooms available for shoppers to try on garments.
~ Vendors are responsible for display + dressing up of table. We supply the table but we do not supply tablecloths, etc.
~Full table rentals do not have to use the table provided that comes with your reservation, but if you opt to not use the table provided, Vendors MUST fit within the "footprint" of where the table would have been. Absolutely NO MERCH in AISLE WAYS.
~Half tables are encouraged if you are new to indie-craft shows and want to test the waters by not making a huge financial commitment. If you rent a half table with a friend, remember, your friend MUST fill out the application also. If you opt for a half table and don't have a partner vendor, I will pair you with another vendor who does not work in the same genre as you, however, you both MUST use the rental table provided.
STREET FAIR DETAILS: The Street fair will be held behind Robart's Arena on pavement...it's the Sarasota Fairgrounds so I didn't want any of you to think you'd be on grass/ground. Nope, it's a paved asphalt road.
Street Fair Vendors are responsible for supplying set ups, which means, you bring the tent, table, displays, etc.
~Vendors are responsible for display and dressing up of space; vendors MUST fit within the "footprint" of the space they have rented with no display bleed out into the middle shopping walk way. Absolutely NO MERCH in AISLE WAYS.
~There are certain "safety" measures you are responsible for fulfilling, i.e., your tent or umbrella must be weighted down to ensure it doesn't fly and strike a human or damage anything.
~There is NO access to electric. Generators are not permitted.
~Smoking is not permitted in vendor rental areas, vendors must go to designated smoke areas for their nicotine breaks.
~The street fair will not be cancelled due to inclement weather and refunds will not be issued. The show must go on, so plan accordingly and be prepared.
SPLITTING / SHARING RENTAL SPACE: if you want to share the experience with a talented friend, no problem! If you have never worked a craft show before, this may be a more affordable way to test the experience. If you plan on splitting a table, booth or Street Fair space with a friend, both of you MUST fill out the application and you both must indicate who your "share partner" is when filling out this application. I encourage people new to the craft world to consider this option, it is a better way to test reception of what you are making with the public and is a good way to learn the ropes of craft shows. If you don't have a friend to split a table rental with, I will pair you with another vendor who does not work in the same genre as you, however, you both MUST use the rental table provided.
