Vendors

Thank you for your interest in being a vendor at a Fair Oaks Recreation & Park District event. All interested vendors must submit an application via Eventeny. Emailed, faxed, or mailed applications will not be accepted. There is a non-refundable application fee of $25 for those accepted as a vendor. The fee will automatically be charged upon acceptance. Those who are not accepted, will not be charged. Below are general guidelines and information. For specifics on each event be sure to read through the Vendor Criteria, Selection, and Terms & Conditions document that is part of each individual event application.

Booth Sizes

  • Booths are sold in 10 foot by 10 foot increments.
  • All displays, merchandise, equipment, etc. may not exceed your 10 foot by 10 foot booth.
  • You will be required to purchase two, 10 foot by 10 foot booths if any portion of your booth, display, merchandise, equipment, etc. does not fit in one, 10 foot by 10 foot booth.

Payments

All payments are processed through Eventeny. All fees will be automatically charged upon application approval. Sorry, we cannot accept cash, check, or money order. Vendors are responsible for any additional processing fees accessed by Eventeny and the credit card processing company.

FOOD VENDORS

For 2022 events we will not be accepting food trucks or carts. Pre-packaged food vendors (jams, jellies, honey, jerky, etc.) may apply but restrictions may apply with sampling of product.

SELECTION CRITERIA

Each year we receive an abundance of applications from vendors who want to participate in our events. Due to space limitations, we use a jury process to determine which vendors we invite to participate. Unfortunately, vendors who meet all the requirements, submission deadlines, and have worked with us in the past may not be guaranteed acceptance. Our jury process will take into account the following: 

  1. Completed Application with all applicable documents turned in prior to the Deadline
    1. Incomplete applications will not be considered. 
  2. Vendor Performance
    1. Past participation in District events does not give vendors an edge over new vendors. However, only past vendors in good standing with the District will be considered. 
  3. Product
    1. Type - we aim to have a healthy mix of vendors.
      1. The style, quality, and uniqueness of the product will also be of significant consideration.
      2. FORPD reserves the right to limit vendors to one or two vendors per product type to maintain product diversity, but may not choose to exercise this right. In the event of multiple vendors with similar products, a vendor may be asked to omit certain items.
    2. Appropriateness of the product in relation to the nature/theme of the event
      1. Preference may be given to types of vendors dependent on the theme and audience of each event.
    3. Price of product(s) to the public.
  4. Presentation 
    1. The overall booth appearance in regards to appropriate signage, display, and branding of products.
