Acceptance emails will be sent on a rolling basis, with all applicants being notified by the first week of September. The deadline for craft fair applications is Friday, August 10th, 2018. Applications received after the deadline will be placed on a waiting list in the order in which they are received.
Prices for booths depend on which days you will be present, your requested location, and there are discounts for downtown Ithaca BID merchants. Pricing is listed in the options further down in this form.
Once accepted, a more detailed vendor guidelines document will be sent to you. If you should have questions about these guidelines, please contact me.

*No awnings are allowed on tents as these interfere with the fire lane. If you need a shady location, please note that in the form below.
*You must bring tent weights. If you do not have tent weights, we will be happy to share information about how to easily make some. Tent weights are important, because without them, wind can cause the tent to fly into the air or move significantly, which could damage your or other vendors' items, and present a safety hazard.
*Your booth must be kept neat and clean. Your table should be covered to the ground and boxes must be hidden from view. Trash must be disposed of and recycled properly. Access to the stores and businesses must be maintained at all times. No alcoholic beverages are permitted. Ithaca has an open container law that is strictly enforced.
*We will have staff members walking around doing schedule Craft Relief Visits throughout the weekend to give you an opportunity to leave your booth for a few minutes.
*Please be prepared to stay the full hours of the craft fair (on the days you have applied to be present). If you know in advance you will need to leave early, please let us know far ahead of the craft fair so we can take that into account when placing booths and selecting vendors.
*You can park in the Parking Garage on Cayuga Street, across from the Hotel Ithaca or in the Green Street or Seneca Street garages. Parking is $7 for the day on Friday in the garages. Event parking is in place for $5 per day on Saturday and Sunday. If you cannot fit in a parking garage (7 foot clearance, no trailers), please indicate below that you'd like to make arrangements.
*We are not able to permit ANY vehicles into the area until this clearance is obtained. You may use a hand truck and the loading zones at the end of each intersection to remove your items prior to this clearance.
*You should pack your booth and place it on the sidewalk, directly behind your booth spot BEFORE you retrieve your vehicle.
*A show coordinator will be walking the site during tear down to help direct traffic. Please do not retrieve your car until we have let you know that we have space available for you to pull your car nearby. Any violation of a staff person or Police Department officers directions will make you ineligible to be included in future festivals, and possible ticketing, fines or other police action.
*Please report any issues to the coordinator immediately so that they can be resolved.
