CURRENT STATUS CLOSED FOR THE SEASON
The vendor gathering area will be open in 2021.
Application requests will be considered on an individual basis and do not ensure entry into the show. When filling out the application information please include your name, address, phone number and as much information as you can regarding your product category including arts, crafts, food, game, etc. The more detail the better. The fee and other requirements for vendor space inside the tent and outside as for food trucks is the same.
The last day Concession Vendor Applications will be accepted is September 1, 2021 if space is still available, however this event is an exclusive event. If someone has already been approved to sell a product judged to be similar to your product, the application may be denied or possibly you may be asked to remove the one product from your list of products and the rest of your list could be approved. Please provide a complete list of products you wish to sell in your booth and they will be reviewed and approved on an individual basis. If your product(s) are selected then you will be the exclusive provider of that category of food, scented item, clothing or craft once we have received your vendor fee. We will have multiple food vendors but the category of food will be exclusive. The event organizer's decisions are final and are we reserve the right to make decisions regarding how similar products are or not.
The event runs for 6 weeks from November 19th until December 31st. The fee to be a vendor at Christmastime in Texas during our 2021 season is just $900 for the entire run of the event. That breaks down to just $150 a week. The amount of the event fee will be evaluated on a yearly basis and may or may not change from year to year. The fee for the 6 weeks in 2021 is just $900 and will NOT be adjusted this year. Your reserved place as a vendor will not be confirmed until the simple application at the bottom of this page is completed, submitted, approved and then a nonrefundable $300 deposit is received and processed to hold your spot. The balance of the fee, $600, is due on September 1, 2021 in order for you to continue to hold your space at the event. Space is held on a first come first serve basis. If another similar vendor completes all of the requirements ahead of you then they will be considered the exclusive vendor for that line of products.
