Holiday Craft Show Important Vendor Information

Registration Process & Deadline

Application Process: Complete and submit the online application form to be considered as a vendor at the Holiday Craft Show. Filling out this application does not guarantee your participation. HRCA will review your application and contact you to confirm. HRCA reserves the right to refuse any application. Businesses that directly compete with HRCA events, programs, and classes will not be permitted.

Payment Note: Payments will be processed upon your application being accepted for the fair. If not accepted, your payment will not be processed. You will get a confirmation email when you first complete the application process, and again when your application has been approved and the payment is processed. For all accepted applications, registration fees are non refundable at any time for any reason.

Selection Process: This is a non-juried show. No commercial or wholesale companies. HRCA makes our best effort to limit the number of vendors selling the same or similar items. If you display items that you did not disclose in the application, you may be asked to remove them.

Deadline: Applications will be open until Friday, November 8 unless sold-out. If the Craft Show sells out, all applications will be automatically added to the waitlist.

Booth Information

Booth Sizes:

Mini Space: ($85) 4' deep x 8' wide
This narrow 4' x 8' space accommodates a 6' table. Many first-time crafters appreciate the ability to have a small space without the pressure to create a large inventory of items.

Regular Space: ($100) 8' deep x 10' wide 
This 8' x 10' space is ample for most vendors. 

Double Space: ($180) 8' deep x 20' wide 
Your floor space will be 8' x 20'. A double-end space (16' deep x 10' long) requires two corner fees, $30 each. Double corners are limited and sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Add Ons:

Corner Space ($30) These are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. A corner space is defined as being at the end of a row, thus having two sides of the booth accessible to shoppers. A corner space does not mean it is in the corner of the gym/track.

Tables ($10) & Chairs ($3) HRCA has a limited number of folding chairs and 6' x 2.5' tables available for rent. Tables and chairs must be reserved ahead of time. Tables and chairs will be set-up in your booth space.

Taxes:

If the HRCA cancels due to severe weather, the HRCA will make every attempt to contact you and will refund all booth fees. If the exhibitor cancels because of severe weather or any other reason, absolutely no refunds are given.
