Vendor Application

The 2018 Missouri Day Festival will be held on Friday, October 19, Saturday, October 20 and Sunday, October 21, 2018.

You have the option to print the application by clicking here. Payment in full is expected at time of application or your booth will not be reserved. There is a $10 late fee for all applications received after September 1 of the current festival year.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING POLICIES PRIOR TO FILLING OUT THE FORM BELOW:

REFUND POLICY:

In the event of cancellation, vendor will be refunded, in the form of a check, 50% of the amount paid. There are absolutely no refunds after September 1 of the current festival year.

EXCLUSIVES ON BOOTHS:

There are no exclusives on booths (eg: one kettle corn, one barbeque, etc.). However, to the best of our ability, we do limit the number of vendors who sell particular items to three (eg: we allow three kettle corn vendors and spread them out throughout the grounds). In order to continue in this manner, it is very important for vendors to inform us (on your application or via a menu) of the items you are selling.

FOOD VENDORS:

Please note that our space is limited to about 17 food vendors. Once we reach that number, we will continue to accept applications and add them to our waiting list for the current year. We also add the information to our database so you will receive applications for future festival years. We start receiving applications the weekend of the event, so get yours in early if you would like to participate.

FAMILY FRIENDLY:

This is a family friendly event. Please make sure the items you sell are ‘G’ rated. If we feel you are selling something inappropriate, you will be asked to put the item(s) away. If you do not comply, you will be asked to leave. FIREARMS are NOT permitted to be sold on the fairgrounds. If you are selling knives or swords, they must be boxed when they leave your booth.

SECURITY:

Security will be provided from 9pm to 5am on Thursday night, 10pm to 6am Friday night and 9pm to 5am Saturday night during the festival.

FESTIVAL HOURS:

Hours are subject to change. Vendor set-up is either Thursday from 1:00pm to 6:00pm or Friday 7am to 11:30am. Vendors open for business Friday 12pm to 8pm, Saturday 9am to 8pm and Sunday 10am to 3pm. Vendors WILL NOT be permitted to bring their vehicles into the fairgrounds for tear-down prior to 3pm on Sunday. This will be strictly enforced. The safety of everyone comes first as well as consideration for other vendors still selling. If you cannot abide by these regulations, please pass your application to another potential vendor.

CAMPING:

Please note we DO NOT operate a campground. The festival grounds are not set up as campsites. However, flea market vendors have the option to camp within their booth space & use the electricity provided for their booth ONLY. If you choose to park your camper at the north fence on the grounds and camp, there will be a $30 camping fee. Crowder State Park (660-359-6473) has a campground three miles west of Trenton on Highway 146. Peggy’s Mobile Home & RV Park (660-359-5042), located on 17th Street, is within a mile of the festival grounds. Black Silo Winery (660-357-2208), approximately a mile-and-a-half from the festival grounds, has given the option of camping on their grounds as well.

INFO SHARING:

Some organizations contact us to request a list of craft vendors who may be interested in participating in their fair or festival. Please mark ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ for sharing your contact information with other organizations and events.

RESERVATIONS:

Current year vendors are given the full weekend of the festival to reserve their same booth for the following year. As of the Monday immediately following the festival, booths not reserved are open to the public.

Be sure to double check the fees on your application, as we reserve the right to change booth fees without advance notice. Please call us at the Chamber at 660-359-4324 or email us at trentonchamber2@att.net if you have any questions. Confirmation of space will be mailed to vendors at the end of September.
