VENDOR INFORMATION
Vendors selling name brands (Mary Kay, Jamberry, etc) will be placed on a FIRST PAY basis (meaning, the person who gets their $$ in first, will secure their place at the event.)  Anyone registering second, third, etc - will have their money refunded and be notified by email as soon as possible.

Booths are 12'x12' and are placed in the parallel parking spaces around the square.  Booths and tables will NOT be provided.  As electricity is limited around the vendor spaces, it will be provided to food vendors for certain but will be available only to a limited number of regular vendor spaces.  PLEASE email astra@bartoncounty.com if you need electric for your booth space.

Event staff will be on site starting at 7am on the day of the event.  Vendors are welcome to set up early, but no security is provided.  All booths must be set up & open by 9am promptly and tear down no earlier than 3pm.  There is no rain date for this event and no refund will be given in case of inclement weather.  

Vendors will be contacted with event packets no later than 3 days before the event via email.  If you do not have an email account you must reach out to the Barton County Chamber of Commerce to obtain your booth location BEFORE the day of the event.  Vendor maps will be secured to light posts around the square in case you forget yours and can not figure out where you are located. PLEASE DO NOT SELECT A SPACE RANDOMLY - it is important you set up in the place designated for your booth.

SPECIAL! - Vendors are invited to dress in theme (wild west) and decorate their booths as well.  The booth with the vendor who wins "Best In Theme" will be awarded a free booth at next year's event!
