Vending spaces are 12ft wide in front, 24ft deep and marked with chalk. Your vending booth, vehicles, tent and other items must fit within those boundaries. The fire lane must be kept clear at all times. If you have an oversized vehicle you will need to purcahse enough space. Camping and vehicles must fit behind the booth and you need to fill in the entire vending space. (for example, if you buy two spaces to accomadate your group, both spaces must have a store front). We can not guarantee a location in the circle for any vehicles over 24ft. We may need to place you on the outer circle as space allows. Vending location may be purchased online, or at the gate beginning at noon on Thursday. Spaces are granted on a first come, first served basis. Vending ends at 5pm on Sunday and you will need to begin shutting down at that time.
One vending purchase includes a camping pass for one person. Others traveling with a vendor will need to purchase a weekend camping pass.
The route is a steep dirt grade with few pull out spots. If you have over heating, poor battery, starter or other vehicle problems, please get them fixed before departure. Expect vehicle lines, entering and exiting the highway and the Faire. Please, shut off your vehicle as often as possible.
In the spirit of Barter Faire, we encourage all Vendors to be open to trades or partial trades. We also encourage items to be handcrafted, handmade, hand-gathered, grown or significantly altered in a handcrafted fashion by the vendor. Vintage, up-cycled, repurposed items are all welcome.
