Arts/Crafts Vendor Selection Criteria
We are targeting vendors who make/create/produce quality arts, crafts, and products. Products that are part of multi-level marketing companies or made outside of the region or the US are not considered. We will not be accepting multiple competitive products in hopes of increasing your profits. Local, handmade, unique products, especially with an agricultural focus will be given top priority in our juried selection process.

We understand just how much hard work it takes to peddle your wares and we will do everything possible to make this event as fun, worthwhile, and stress-free as we can!
Taxes and Insurance
• Vendors will be required to have proof of insurance. Upon acceptance, you will be asked provide a copy of your liability insurance. Let us know if you have any questions on this. Your business insurance agent will be able to fax this quickly and easily so not to worry!
Booth Operation Guidelines
• Booth locations are assigned in a non-tented 10’ x 10’ space.
• Booths must be set up and remain operational for times listed on contract. Further details on the move in/out process, times, and parking will be provided upon acceptance.
• Booth spaces will not have electricity or water provided.
• We will not be providing any shade tents or cover, so if you would like to be in the shade, please bring your own canopy. Keep in mind that this is Montana, so it could be hot, sunny, rainy, snowy, or the wind may very well be blowing! If you do bring a canopy, you must be prepared to stake it down, weigh it down, or do whatever it takes so it doesn’t end up in North Dakota. Thank you kindly!
• Any vendor activity must be restricted to your booth space.
