ST. GEORGE, UTAH FESTIVAL:
Nov. 28 thru Dec. 1, 2018 (Weds. thru Sat.)
Dixie Convention Center
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH FESTIVAL:
Dec. 6 thru Dec. 8, 2018 (Thurs. thru Sat.)
Mountain American Exposition Center formerly known as South Towne Exposition Center
ACCOMMODATIONS: List of Hotels offering discounts will be sent upon acceptance.
ADVERTISING: Huge advertising campaign will include Television, Radio, Newspaper, Magazines, Billboards, Posters, Coupons and Social Media. Vendors will receive Social Media updates to help get the word out!
BOOTHS: Booths are to resemble old English shops; vendors are responsible for constructing what will best display their own merchandise following this theme. Overhead hall lighting will be off or limited so each booth must supply its own light. General electricity (up to 500 watts) will be provided at no charge. There will be a charge for additional electrical requests. (Bring heavy cords to connect & twinkle lights to decorate.) Pop-Up tents work great for basic framework but MUST be modified to meet set standards. (See easy booth construction ideas on detailed exhibitor packet.)
BOOTH SIGNAGE: “Shop” signs are recommended but must be made of wood or other suitable material. Vinyl signs are prohibited unless they look really old-fashioned and are approved in writing. Any large commercial signs are NOT appropriate in a theme festival and will not be allowed unless specifically approved in writing PRIOR to opening.
COSTUMES: Because this is a theme festival, English 19th Century COSTUMES ARE MANDATORY! No jeans or sneakers will be permitted and Ladies must wear a skirt or dress—no pant costumes. Everyone working in a booth MUST be in costume. See simple, easy costume helps on detailed exhibitor packet.
ENTERTAINMENT: Two large stages will have continuous entertainment featuring performing groups from around the area and State, as well as mini-musical productions of “Scrooge” and “Oliver Twist”. Street theatre (giant ghosts, pickpockets, carolers, etc.), will be ongoing as well as Queen Victoria and her court and of course our “real” Father Christmas.
FOOD VENDORS: Both Convention Centers have food & beverage contracts so only vendors selling packaged food items that are intended for gifts or to be carried will be allowed.
PARKING: Both shows offer FREE parking for Exhibitors and Patrons.
SECURITY: Security Guards will be present during all hours but vendors are strongly advised to BE ON TIME and to pack up all cash boxes and valuable merchandise nightly. Exhibitors are at their own risk.
