Dear Vendor:

Welcome to the 15th Annual SummerFest on the Rio!

You will notice a new look to our applications and website. We were listening when you asked for a simpler method in submitting applications and payments.

The dates for this year’s festival are June 2nd – June 4th, 2017. Festival hours this year are: Friday 4:00 pm – 10:00 pm, Saturday 10:00 am – 10:00 pm, and Sunday 10:00 am – 7:00 pm.

Check-in will begin on Friday, June 2nd from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm and Saturday, June 3rd from 7:00 am to 9:30 am. Please do not ask to check-in prior to the times listed. Friday set up is optional; however on Saturday and Sunday booths must be set up, open and ready to go by 10:00 am. Use your own discretion for Friday and Saturday evenings for closure. We request no driving on the grass or dismantling your booth before 4:00 pm on Sunday unless pre-approved by the Committee.

Please know that although you may be a local vendor or have participated in years past we cannot guarantee that your application will be accepted. As a reminder – ALL arts and crafts products must be handcrafted by the vendor. We will not accept imported or retail items.

There are several changes to the Vendor Policies Form and Application so please review all forms thoroughly. Applications for food vendors are due no later than March 31st. Food vendors will be selected based on date of application, menu and price. We will not accept any food applications after this date. Art, Craft and Information applications are due no later than 5:00 pm on Friday, May 19th. To receive full refunds on booth space, a letter of request is due no later than May 31st.

You will receive confirmation of approved application through E-mail. Please be sure to include your e-mail address, legibly, on your application. If you do not have an e-mail address, please note that on your application and you will receive confirmation by mail. You will not receive your space number or vendor packet until you check- in.

We truly appreciate your continued support and look forward to seeing you in Alamosa for the 15th Annual SummerFest on the Rio.

Thank you,
