We invite you and your organization to participate as a vendor at the TAWN Fall Festival 2019. Set-up begins Saturday at 7:00am and must be complete by 9:00am; Fall Festival 2019 officially starts at 9:00am and ends at 5:00pm. Tear-down starts at 5:00pm and must be complete by 5:50pm. A TAWN volunteer will remind you of this around 4:15 and/or 4:30. Please be prompt in packing up so that our volunteers can clean the area and attend the Fall Equinox ritual which starts at 6:00pm. The site closes at approximately at 7:30pm.

Booth Information:

The following are the booth fees for TAWN Fall Festival 2019.

-For a nonprofit Information space: $5

-For a regular (10’ by 10’) Vendor space: $10

-For a larger (up to 10’ by 20’) Vendor space: $15

The vendor will specify the size of space requested with the default being the 10 x 10 space. If you would like more than the 10 x 20 space, contact the Festival Coordinator. The usage of the electric power which is available in many areas in and near the church buildings is under the direction of TAWN. TAWN will try to honor vendor requests but cannot guarantee to do so. Vendor space will be assigned by the order in which TAWN receives vendor applications. All decisions by the Vendor Coordinator are final and will be supported by the Board.

Item Donation:

Silent auctions are a major fund-raiser for TAWN. Most of our vendors contribute an item valued at $50.00 or more to these fund-raising activities. TAWN displays the name of the vendor and, if provided, their business card next to the item when it is offered for raffle or auction. The vendor application form includes a space to fill in what item(s) you will be donating. The item may also be donated in person at the event. TAWN is a 501(c)3 organization and tax receipts are available for all donations.

Licensure:

ALL VENDORS AND PSYCHICS MUST HAVE A CURRENT CITY OF TUCSON BUSINESS LICENSE OR FORTUNE-TELLER’S LICENSE DISPLAYED PROMINENTLY WHILE WORKING THE FESTIVAL. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Additional Information:

Vendors must follow Federal, State, and Tucson City laws and ordinances. TAWN bylaws and Tucson city ordinances prohibit nudity, illegal drugs, and alcohol at the event. Violators will be requested to leave and/or be turned over to the Tucson Police Department. TAWN believes that one of the keys to a successful event is for everyone involved – members, vendors, participants, guests, and visitors- to treat each other with courtesy and respect. Any inconsiderate behavior, including racial or religious slurs, will not be tolerated. Any disruptive and/or offensive behavior can result in the suspension of your vendor privileges without refund or recourse, and may also result in removal from the event. All vendor vehicles must be in the parking spaces during the official festival time. Vehicles parked inappropriately or in reserved spaces may be towed at owner expense. Certain vehicles are permitted to be used as selling venues if arranged in advance with TAWN. TAWN is not responsible for lost, delayed, or misdirected mail.

      Thank you for the heads up. I will see what I/we can do to fix that. I did receive your registration but I will talk to my computer guru.
