About the event

Things look a little different this year! With social distancing orders in place, we are requiring that each vendor bring their own pop up tent to ensure we can adequately separate vendors. Each vendor will have a (roughly) 10' x 10' footprint available to them. After your application has been accepted, you will can indicate if you need to rent tables and chairs or if your display requires special consideration such as electrical hookup.

$115 vendor fee

COVID-19 CONSIDERATIONS

Sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the venue for attendee and vendor use. Restroom trailers will be available in addition to the permanent restroom facility at Wilkeson Pointe. Security will be present, ensuring safe social distancing and mask use as mandated by NYS.

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 vendor fee, which goes toward venue costs, permitting, table & chair rental and event promotion.

what to bring

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. You can specify this after you've been accepted as a vendor. Vendors are responsible for everything pertaining to their display and merchandise. You should bring any necessary supplies including tablecloths, pens, paper, tape, register, and small bills for change. Please note, as an outdoor event, there is no public wifi available.

Promotion

The event and vendors are promoted through a series of social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The event may also promoted through print and radio ads, posters and handbills, community calendars, press releases and more.
