Information on becoming a Vendor for the event:
Please read all information carefully prior to submitting an application. Incomplete applications will delay acceptance notification.
The Clovis Chamber of Commerce is not affiliated with the City of Clovis but, must conform to the City Ordinances and rules set by the Clovis Police and Fire Department.
All participants are required to participate both days. Participants must provide their own easy-ups/tents, tables and chairs.
There will be no subleasing or sharing of spaces.
Electricity and water is not provided, anyone using electricity will immediately be removed from the event and future events and will not receive any refund.
Generators are not allowed, however a few exceptions are taken into consideration.
Photos of your merchandise and booth display will be required when submitting your applications. Arts and craft vendors that make their own merchandise will be required to provided additional photos of their work area along with photos of work in progress.
All new products added to your booth MUST be approved. Any new product added after you are placed in a show could affect your placement due to category limitations and classifications. For example: if your primary craft is not jewelry or floral arrangements, you must receive prior approval to sell new products in your booth.
The main factor taken into consideration for acceptance is quality and uniqueness of craft.
The Chamber has the right to limit the amount of similar crafts/commercial exhibited at the event. We strive for balance and variety of product throughout our shows, making sure those vendors selling the same are spread throughout and not next to one another. This applies to multiple applicants from the same company, as well. To assure that there be only one representative per company is an internal issue of a given corporation. The Clovis Chamber of Commerce is not responsible to ‘police’ these company’s policies.
VENDOR SET- UP:
Vendors will be permitted to set up their booth early Saturday morning, times will vary. There is no Friday night set up, streets are to remain open to through traffic.
Overnight security is provided; however, the Clovis Chamber of Commerce is not responsible for anything remaining.
CONFORMING TO BOOTH SIZE:
Everything must be within your boundary NO EXCEPTIONS! Vendors exceeding space will be removed from event and will not receive a refund.
If you wish to hang or place anything on the outside of your booth, you may do so, ONLY if it does NOT exceed your allotted space. If you do not have enough room for everything to fit within your space, please purchase a larger one when applying. Boxes and merchandise may NOT remain on sidewalks for any reason. This includes cash registers, boxes, seating, etc. Boxes or other storage items may not be visible. Table cloths must be draped to the floor. Our events are not flea market quality and we will follow through to assure they remain that way.
SALES TAX/RESALE NUMBER REQUIREMENTS:
All exhibitors are responsible for collecting and paying their California Sales Tax on all sales made during each Festival and need to posses a California Resale License. Even if you are coming to one of the events from another state, you can apply for a temporary license. If you do not have a resale number, please contact the California State Board of Equalization at 1-800-400-7115 or visit www.boe.ca.gov. The City of Clovis sales tax rate is 7.98%.
We ask that everyone respects the show policies and their neighbor’s space. This is a non-smoking event.
