We are inviting vendors to participate in our 26th Annual “OLDEN DAYS” Festival to be held August 27 & 28, 2016 on our Club Grounds located at 23946 State Highway 3, just 2 miles west of Junction 109 in southwestern Jersey County, IL. Our festival is part of the AGELESS IRON circuit and is similar to a county fair, church social and family reunion all rolled into one. We have been averaging 3,500 visitors the past few years, based on actual gate receipts.
Please come join us for these 2 days of fun. If you have crafts or flea market items, just fill out the enclosed contract and return by June 15, 2016. One-half (1/2) down payment for vendor fees will be required to reserve your space, with the balance due upon setup. Setup will be ONE DAY ONLY, Friday, August 26, 2016 and should be in place by 8:00 p.m. EVERYTHING must be in place by 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 27. Hours of the Festival are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. BOTH DAYS.
This is a
“rain or shine” event. All vendors agree to participate for the entire
event and understand that TEAR DOWN before 4 p.m. on Sunday is NOT
ALLOWED FOR ANY REASON. VENDORS SHALL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR OWN SHELTER IF NEEDED.
All vendors working out of RV’s or trailers will be required to reserve the 20 x 20 spaces in increments to fit their need, i.e., if you have a 50 ft. RV – you would require at least 2 ½ (20 x 20) spaces, as all trailers & RV’s take up at least 20 ft. in depth, by the time you extend your awnings, etc. We do have limited space for these. Space rates will be increased $5.00 per space for any reservation made after August 1, 2016 and no reservation will be accepted after Monday, August 22, 2016.
Also included in the space fee is 2 souvenir buttons that will get two (2) people and one (1) vehicle on the grounds for the duration of the festival. Additional buttons may be purchased for $1.00 each. RV’s for living purposes only, will be required to park in designated areas. Parking for vendors is also in a designated area and you will be issued a placard identifying you as a Vendor. Electricity will be provided to you for your booth, if needed, at the additional cost of $5.00 per weekend. There will be NO REFUNDS ON SPACE RENTAL, unless extenuating circumstances prohibit the festival from being held.
