SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH FESTIVAL:
Nov. 21 thru Nov. 23, 2019 (Thurs. thru Sat.)
Salt Lake County Equestrian Park
ST. GEORGE, UTAH FESTIVAL:
Dec. 4 thru Dec. 7, 2019 (Weds. thru Sat.)
Dixie Convention 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. Commercial signs are prohibited unless specifically approved in writing PRIOR to opening. No exceptions (this includes vinyl signs)!
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 from the novels of Charles Dickens. 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.
The Dixie Center has a food & beverage contract so only vendors selling packaged food items that are intended for gifts or to be carried will be allowed in our St. George show.
In Salt Lake City, we are excited that we can now offer a variety of separate food booths. Booth frontages and basic signage will be provided to these specific food booths, but space is limited.
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.
