Vendors

Here's how our Craft Fair works:

If you are on our mailing list, you will receive an email and/or postcard to let you know when applications will be available on this website.  If you would like to be notified when applications are available, please contact us with your information at bvcraftfair@gmail.com.

SPECIAL NOTES

We accept all types of art and handcrafted, embellished, and assembled products.  All items must be hand-made by the vendor.  Vendors with manufactured and imported items will be asked to remove those items from the selling areas and, at the discretion of the Chair, may be asked to leave without recourse and/or return of fees, losing return privileges.  The BV Arts & Crafts Fair strives to provide artists with an outlet for their abilities and creations.  If you observe any booths displaying, selling or marketing resale items, please contact the Chair immediately.

Booths are $115 and 10' by 10' or 12' by 14".  Both sizes are available on the inner campus and parking areas.  We recommend floor tarps for potential grass/dirt spaces.  We provide only ground space.  All display structures, power and canopies are the responsibility of the vendors.  Price is subject to change.

You are welcome to split a booth with another vendor, but the two (or three) of you must apply together.  We do not match up vendors that only want half a booth.

IF you are selling food items, you are REQUIRED to have the appropriate permit from the Sacramento County Health Department.   Acceptable permits are:  (1) Retail Food Facility Permit, (2) Occasional Event Application, or (3) Annual Temporary Food Permit.  You will need to provide a copy of the permit if you are selected to participate in the fair.  Additional fees apply.

JEWELRY VENDORS: We limit our jewelry booths to no more than 15% of the total booths available.
