RULES FOR ALL ETON EVENTS
The Eton Special Events Vendor Committee makes every effort to ensure clean, professional, and diverse informational, art, crafts, and food booths, along with activities for all ages for each event. The selection of vendors is based on a variety of factors including amount of space available, products, menu presentation, and the desires of the festivals. Each event and opportunity is unique. Each event requires a specific and online application and payment.
Application Process: Please fill out the application and form(s) as thoroughly as possible and submit it to us, using the online process. We will consider your applications for each event and will notify you if you will be invited to participate with us at a festival. Sending an application does not guarantee acceptance. Acceptance or rejection is at the sole discretion of the Festival Committee. At the point of acceptance, you will be notified by email only. If for some reason your application is denied, you will receive notification by email with the reason(s) why. If you are unable to submit an application online, you may visit Eton City Hall where they will enter it online for you. The deadline for a booth entry for the 2019 Pumpkin Festival is September 13, 2019. The deadline for a booth entry for the 2019 Fireworks Festival is June 14, 2019.
Payment: Payment is due with application, by credit card only. Each booth space costs: $50 or $75 with electricity. If getting two booth spaces together, they need to be either both with electricity or both without. This is due to the limited areas offering electricity. Even if you need only one with electric, you will be charged $75 for the second one due to it being a booth in the electricity section. There are NO 220 outlets available.
Refund Policy: If the application is denied, payment will be reimbursed to the credit card account through which it was paid. No refunds will be given for approved applications due to vendor cancellations or inclement weather.
What we Provide: Included in your festival fee is a booth space up to 15x15 (More than 15x15 requires additional booth fees) , and electricity, if requested and paid for.
