When is the Festival Crafts fair?
The Warner Fall Foliage Festival is held every Columbus Day weekend. Crafts and farmer’s market booths are expected to remain open from 9am to 5pm Saturday and Sunday during the Festival.
How do I apply? What is the cost?
To apply for crafts, farmers market, or field vendor space, please review and submit the application on the web site with a description of your work. A non-refundable space fee of $155 must be submitted after your application has been accepted. The fee covers both days of the festival. Applications and payments will only be accepted online.
What is the application deadline?
Applications are accepted until the weekend before the festival or until all spots are filled. All applications are first come, first serve.
Can I request a specific booth?
Crafters are welcome to request a specific booth location and we will do what we can to accommodate. However, please understand there is no guarantee. At times, unforeseen circumstances may require us to relocate a booth to an alternate location.
How do I know if I’m accepted? What if I’m not accepted?
Once your application has been submitted, you will receive an email stating whether you have been accepted or not. If accepted, your email will include a payment link. Payment will only be accepted online. Once payment has been confirmed, your name and information will be added to the list of attending vendors. Booth spaces will be assigned several weeks before the festival. There are no refunds if you choose not to attend. Full refunds will be issued if the decision has been made to cancel the festival. We do not allow the private resale of spaces.
What size are the spaces?
Spaces inside the town hall are 8' by 5' and include a 6' table and 2 chairs. Electricity is limited to 200 watts per space and is available only against the walls. If you bring your own chairs, they must have rubber feet affixed to them. The elevator cannot be used for moving crafts or supplies in and out. Outside spaces (on the Town Hall lawn and the Masonic Hall Lawn) are 10' by 10' and each vendor must supply his or her own tent, table or any other displays. We limit all spaces to one person or group. Vendors must also provide weights for each tent, clearly anchored/attached to the tent by sturdy means. This is a nonnegotiable requirement.
How does the Festival Raffle work?
To showcase our crafts & farmer’s market vendors, we ask each exhibitor to donate an item for our Raffle prize drawing. The raffle has been very popular over the years and we truly appreciate your donations. Your name and booth location are posted with your prize donation so people can visit you at the festival. Raffle prizes are dropped off at the town hall stage Saturday morning. Tickets are sold throughout Festival weekend, and prize winners are announced Sunday afternoon.
