MUM FEST VENDOR RULES
We are seeking food vendors/trucks and vendors that produce handcrafted items and goods. We will not approve direct sales vendors or vendors that sell mass-produced items or goods.
All vendors are responsible for tables, display units, table covers, extension cords, generators, signage and any other items needed to effectively set up their area.
Food Trucks - If you are a food vendor with a food truck, etc. we ask that you list the size of your truck when signing up so we can plan accordingly. Outdoor food vendors will get first electricity preference.
Craft/Artisan/Bakery/Etc. - Both indoor and outdoor spaces are 10’ x 10’ and we have limited availability of indoor spots. The indoor spaces are located in our barn and will have access to electricity. Outdoor spaces will NOT have access to electricity.
Space Fee & Payment
Indoor & outdoor 10'x10' spaces are $35 each. A $35 payment is due upon submission of the vendor sign up form below. If you require more than one space, you will be sent an online invoice for submitting payment after August 1.
We will have designated parking the day of the event for vendors. We ask that once you complete set up that your vehicle be moved to this area.

Food vendors should have “General Liability” insurance and a food permit that is visibly displayed throughout the duration of the event.
We are working on extra measures for a safe experience for event vendors and attendees! However, it is your own responsibility for personal protective measures such as handwashing, sanitizing, wearing a face mask, gloves, etc. You should not attend our event if you feel ill, are showing signs of illness or have tested positive for COVID-19 (or had close contact with someone who has tested positive) within 30 days prior to the the event.

We are asking vendors to do the following:
Social distance as much as possible and please bring masks if you are unable to social distance, etc.
Bring hand sanitizer for your booth.

All space fees are non-refundable. Weather Policy: Because of our full calendar of events, we cannot reschedule Mum Fest for a future weekend if adverse weather arises. Therefore, we will not make any refunds for cancellations due to weather. If inevitable inclement weather is expected, we will email all vendors with updates. We will try to hold Mum Fest even if we do have some rain in the forecast. If we are required to cancel due a severe/hazardous weather event, we will make every effort to notify you in advance by any means we feel fit; however, no credits or refunds will be issued. To protect your tent, it must be sturdy enough to withstand Central Illinois weather. Also, you need to have enough weights on each pole of your tent as our farm does not have a lot of wind breaks. Generally, a 40-50-pound weight per each tent leg is standard.
