Japanese Cultural Festival 2018 Vendor Application
Thank you for showing interest in becoming a vendor at the 2018 Japanese Cultural Festival in Santa Fe. As a vendor, you contribute directly to the experience of our guests. For this reason, Santa Fe JIN works to ensure your experience as a vendor is equally rewarding. JIN will work to address your concerns as best as possible throughout the vendor process. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know as soon as possible by sending email to president@santafejin.org.

Most of the information on this form is very important. It will influence how your booth is advertised in our program, so please take the time to fill it out completely and as if it were to be read by your customers at the Festival.

Please wait to send payment for booths till after your application has been accepted. To ensure the vendor experience is a good one, JIN limits the number of vendors for certain products, meaning all applications are subject to approval. If accepted, an email will be sent to the address provided with additional instructions for a variety of payment methods.

Thank you,

Casey Janes
President, Santa Fe JIN

Booth Configuration
Booth Type and Size *
Booth sizes come in 10x10" increments. There are two sets of rates: $235 per 10x10 for Business and $165 per 10x10 for Non-Profit. The Non-Profit rate is only extended to those organizations that have either 501.3(c) or 501.4(c) status with the IRS. If you do not have this status, your rate is the Business rate.
Booth Lighting *
It's very important that you know that the lighting in the Convention Center is *not* trade show quality. It is ballroom quality. If you want to be sure that the lighting meets your needs, please bring your own lighting. Over the years, we've seen times where ceiling bulbs have blown, literally days before the event, leaving booths shrouded in less-than-optimal lighting.
Tables and Chairs *
This year we're planning to have the Convention Center setup tables and chairs. Please identify here the number of tables and chairs that you need for your booth. Tables are standard width and come in 6" and 8" lengths and can be skirted in black cloth and topped in black vinyl. The tables themselves are a dark brown, dense plastic and are rated for several hundreds of pounds of weight. You're welcome to bring your own tables and dressing if you like. A single booth will typically use one or two, while double or triple booths use 3 or more. Additional tables may be available on the setup day as needed, but dressing the table will be your responsibility.
Example of 6 foot table skirted with black cloth and topped with black vinyl.
