To start your application process as an art vendor at the 2018 Festival, please submit the following interest form.
After this form is completed, the Festival’s Art Vendor Coordinator will follow up with you with more information about your acceptance, registration process, and day of the event logistics. Please note: due to the number of applications, filling out the application does not secure acceptance. We reserve the right to preference international-themed vendors and ensure variety. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
This year we will have an entirely new process than in the past due to a new setup. Please read these provisions and guidelines carefully as many things have changed. Submitting your application means that you have read this entire document and that you agree to the provisions and guidelines.
We will consider your application for each event we have for the year and will notify you if you will be invited to participate with us at the festival. Again, sending an application does not guarantee acceptance.
Cost - $80 per space. Payment is only due once you have been accepted. We prefer payment by check or money order. If paying by credit card, there will be an additional processing fee. a $50 charge will be assessed for returned checks. A separate cleaning deposit check may be required for certain events if vendors abuse the clean up process.
Method - We accept payment by credit/debit card, check, money order, or cash. Cards are processed through FairField Center's Services Payment page (select Harrisonburg International Festival as the Service Branch). Checks can be made out to FairField Center and be sent to or dropped off at 111 E Market St B, Harrisonburg, VA 22801. Cash may be delivered there as well.
Deadline - As mentioned, you will be notified on August 1 of your acceptance. Your payment is due on August 10. If we do not receive your payment and necessary documentation by then, your space will be assigned to another vendor.
*Note: We encourage you to use cultural decorations and background information to educate our attendees about the cultural roots and influences in your work. We also encourage use of traditional dress to enhance the intercultural atmosphere of the World Bazaar and to draw people to your booth.
