|Application postmarks, review dates, and the wait list
Our available booth space is usually filled with applications postmarked by the deadline for first review (usually mid-November.) Applications are still taken after this first postmark deadline in order to round out the merchandise selection.
Applications postmarked after the date of first review are batched for the second date of review. If spaces aren't available, applications will go onto the Wait List.
Once all vendor space is full, the Festival will take applications for our wait-list. Wait-listed applications will be considered when there are cancellations.
If the vendor is not interested in going onto the wait-list, the fee payment is immediately returned.
If the vendor IS interested in going onto the wait-list, the application and fee is kept until an opportunity arises. The Festival will immediately try to contact the vendor with the offer of space by phone and email (if provided.) If there is a rapid response needed, we will let you know how long you have to make the decision. (Varies on how close the event is...)
Once the vendor accepts the offer off the wait-list, the fee payment is deposited. Once cleared, the vendor receives the official notification of acceptance and any other information sent to vendors to date.
Tip: Keep your contact information current!
