TERMS:
  1. The NIC will provide power to NIC Fest through Moser Energy Systems. All vendors are responsible for bringing the necessary power cords (110 volt with ground) to connect to the power boxes Moser Energy Systems provides. You are NOT allowed to bring generators into NIC Fest. If you have specific power concerns or questions regarding NIC Fest, please contact Dana Volney at (307) 235-5247 or dana@thenic.org.
  2. The vendor fee is for the space only; all other items, supplies, and staffing will be your responsibility.
  3. Booth spaces will be assigned by The NIC. Previous booth spaces are not guaranteed. They are first come, first served.
  4. Set-up is Friday, June 8th beginning at 9:00am. All booths must be ready to open to the public by 5:00pm. Booths may not be taken down until the show closes at 4:00pm on Sunday, June 10th.
  5. Health Inspectors and the Fire Marshal will be inspecting all booths prior to the official start time and throughout NIC Fest. Your space must completely pass all inspections. If your booth fails inspection AT ANY POINT, you will forfeit all monies paid to The NIC and must immediately vacate the premises.
  6. By paying and being accepted into NIC Fest 2018 for a space, you guarantee active sales at your booth throughout the entirety of NIC Fest, including providing active sales during all operating hours for each day of NIC Fest. You are agreeing to have and provide your products during all operational hours of the NIC Fest. The failure to provide your services and products, including but not limited to, running out of products, closing down before operational hours throughout the entirety of the NIC Fest for any reason, failing to open at the start of operational hours throughout the entirety of the NIC Fest for any reason, will result in a financial penalty of up to $500.00, subject to the determination by the NIC Fest Committee. Vendor agrees and understands that the failure to provide services during all operational hours precludes the ability for other vendors to participate and therefore will cause a loss of profit to NIC Fest. In addition, should Vendor fail to provide services during the entirety of the NIC Fest event, fail to provide staffing coverage for your booth during NIC Fest or the removal/clean-up following the event, your business will be excluded from all future NIC sponsored events.

Only exhibitors who have been accepted in the jewelry category may display and sell jewelry, etc. Limited edition prints of your original work are acceptable, but may not be more than 50% of your total display.
  8. All work displayed must be consistent with the work presented with the Artist Alley Vendor Application.
