DO I NEED TO BE AT THE FESTIVAL ALL THREE DAYS?
Yes. We require that you have someone manning your booth for all three days during festival hours. Obviously breaks are allowed. But we do ask that you try to be at your booth as much as possible.
DO YOU HAVE [INSERT DIRECT SALES COMPANY] ALREADY SIGNED UP?
That's a great question! Please refer to this document for a current list of direct sale companies already signed up. If your company is already listed but you're still interested in having a booth at Sellersburg Celebrates! then please fill out the online form to be put on a waiting list. Booth spaces are first come, first served. If someone fails to make a payment on their booth space then the spot will open up for the next person on the list.
WHEN IS SET UP?
Vendors will receive an email Wednesday morning before the festival starts. Once you get this email you're welcome to set up at any time. There may not be someone at the park to direct you. Even if you find a volunteer they may not be able to assist you. Look at your registration form for contact information if you have questions.
All booths must be set up by 3:00PM on the first day of the festival (Thurs). A fire marshal inspection will take place shortly after setup is to be complete. Booth assignments will be sent out via email Wednesday morning. A festival representative may not be able to assist you on the field at all times during set up. As such, please keep an eye out for the email regarding the assignments.
WHEN IS BREAKDOWN?
On the last day of Sellersburg Celebrates tear down may begin at 11:00PM or when it is announced over the speaker. Tear down is also permitted the Sunday after the festival. You are required to be at the festival until 11PM on Saturday. Anyone caught breaking down before the announcement will not be allowed to return as a vendor.
WHERE DO I PARK?
Vendor parking is first come, first served. One pass will be given to each vendor. You can purchase additional parking passes at the information booth upon check in or at any time during the festival. Advance purchase of vendor parking passes can be done upon registration.
do you limit types of booths?
The committee makes an effort to limit the types of booths at the festival in relation to direct sales vendors. If you have a concern please reach out to us here with questions.
what is the turnout like?
We estimate that over 5,000 - 10,000 people turn out for the duration of the festival. When our main event takes the stage, we frequently run out of parking spaces.
IS THE EVENT EVER CANCELLED FOR RAIN?
There is no scheduled rain date. In severe cases, we will cancel the festival for weather related causes. This has only happened a handful of times in the past 30+ years of the festival. In 2015, severe weather caused the committee to cancel the festival early. The early cancellation was unforunate for everyone, but it inspired the 2017 theme of "Weather or Not".
IS THERE OVERNIGHT SECURITY TO PROTECT MY PRODUCTS?
Yes. There are officers dedicated to the park overnight. However, we are not liable for any theft or damages.
DO YOU PROVIDE ANYTHING LIKE CHAIRS, TABLES, OR TENTS?
Nothing is provided by the festival committee. Tables, chairs, and tents are suggested items that you should bring. Electricity is provided, but you must provide your own extension cords.
WHAT IS THE SPACE SIZE AND IS ELECTRICITY PROVIDED?
Craft booths are 10ft x 10ft. Electricity is provided, but you must bring your own extension cords.
