Festival FAQ

Below are some common questions that we have received for the 2016 Buggy Days festival:

Q: How much are vendor spaces?
A: For arts and crafts vendors, the booth fee is $125. For general food vendors, the fee is $100.  **Remember** Food vendors must be associated with a local non-profit organization.

Q: How big are your spaces? What do I do if I end up needing additional space?
A: The vendor spaces are 12×12 and located on asphalt surfaces. We make every attempt to assist vendors with spacing needs, however due to the number of vendors that participate in Buggy Days sometimes additional space cannot be accommodated. Therefore, we encourage all of our vendors to ensure before setting up that their total booth display is 12×12 or less.

Q: This is a two day event. What do I do with my merchandise after the first day? What is the plan for adverse weather?
A: Since this is a two-day event, vendors have 1 of 2 options. Vendors may pack up their merchandise and display items and bring them back the second day or they may cover their items and leave them at their booth overnight. In the event of rain and/or adverse weather conditions, we cannot offer a refund for any booth space.

Q: I want my same space as last year…
A: While this is not something we can guarantee, we will make every effort to accommodate these requests. Instances may arise where this simply is not possible. Here is a general example:
ex: Kristen had a corner space at last year’s festival and wants the same space this year. She sent her application in late and did not send any pictures of her craft. Robert had a space next to Kristen’s last year, but this year he requested an additional space. He sent his complete application in on time and ended up being placed in Kristen’s space.

Q: I am having an issue with my space, another vendor, etc. Who should I contact?
A: If you are experiencing an issue with your space, another vendor, or have any other question or concern, please contact a member of the Buggy Days volunteer team. There will be many of them running around and they will all be wearing neon orange shirts.

Q: I have heard that vendors will be allowed to participate in the Buggy Days concert. How do I sign up?
A: For more information on vending at the Buggy Days concert, please contact Interim President & CEO Jessica Farr at jessicafarr@barnesville.org.
