Again in 2014, we will have a wide variety of vendors at the Fest. Applications are released for download here on this page on Monday, January 6, 2014.
PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTIONS HERE AND ALL OF THE RULES AND REGULATIONS ON THE DOWNLOADS (see links to the downloads below).
NOTE: We provide an extensive advertising and marketing campaign that includes TV, radio, print, and social media from the Mid-West down through South Florida. (In 2013, we had visitors from 24 states. For 2014, we anticipate up to 50,000 attendees during the three days and 31 hours of operation of the 2014 Fest.)
We are searching for unique food products in addition to traditional offerings. These would include ethnic foods, specialty foods, and cultural offerings. Duplication of all items will be limited, similar products will not be placed near each other, and the total number of vendors selling food will be strictly limited. All operations must have capacity to feed large crowds. Balloon & Sky Fest will make the final decisions regarding which vendors are accepted to participate in the 2014 event, and it reserves to right to reject any application at its sole discretion (payments from rejected vendors will be returned promptly).
NOTE: the EXCLUSIVE WATER of the 2014 Fest is Choose Rain – NO other brands or types of water will be allowed anywhere at the Fest (See specific information on the application regarding where and when to get your supply of Choose Rain to sell at the Fest.) You can download a Choose Rain water order form here.
Arts, Crafts, Business:
The Arts, Crafts, and Business Marketplace will be an exciting, diverse area near Show Center. With "Quad-Pod" layouts, everyone will have two sides of exposure....for maximum interaction with the crowd. We will do our best to keep similar vendors and similar items far apart from each other, and we will limit the number of similar items at the event....first come, first served. However, Balloon & Sky Fest, at its sole discretion, reserves the right to reject any application; those vendor payments will be returned.
