ATTENDANCE & PROMOTION

Last year the Jack Craft Fair brought over 3000 attendees! The event and vendors will be promoted through a series of social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The event will also be promoted (as budget allows) through print and radio ads, posters and handbills, community calendars, press releases and more. All vendors and sponsors will be listed in an official program to be handed out the date of the event. REMEMBER, we also rely on you as a vendor to promote the event and bring in as many people as you can!


SALES

Vendors are permitted and encouraged to sell their work. Jack Craft Fair does not take a percentage of sales made by vendors. The only fee you pay to the fair is the table fee, which goes toward the cost of the venue rental.


WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

Included in your table fee is a table (full or half, depending on your specification) and chairs. If you wish, you may bring your own table and chairs. If you have a large scale setup or additional display pieces that cannot fit on your tabletop (clothing racks, furniture, standing card racks etc) more space can be allotted for you, with prior notification. Vendors are responsible for everything pertaining to their display and merchandise. You should bring any necessary supplies including tablecloths, pens, paper, tape, Square register, and small bills for change.


VENDOR DISCLAIMERS:

The Jack Craft Fair is a free event that is open to the public.

It is a curated event and while every application will be looked at and considered, not all will be accepted. Applications will be assessed based on exemplary quality of work, individuality of craft, attention to detail, experience with the medium, and quality of application. Applicants ARE permitted to enter more than one application, each of differing craft.

Jack Craft Fair, as a privately organized event, reserves the right to refuse any application based on the above criteria, without question.

If, for any reason, the Jack Craft Fair does not happen on the date specified (or an appropriately rescheduled date due to unforeseen circumstances) or the organizers fail to provide the space as promised, a full refund of the table fee will be granted.

Vendors must charge state sales tax on the items that they sell. By agreeing to be a vendor, you acknowledge that you have been made aware of this and cannot hold the organizers of the Jack Craft Fair, any of the fair’s sponsors, or the venue, responsible should you be found in transgression of this edict.
