Vendor Rules

Thank you for joining us as a vendor at our Anna Glow Fest 2016. This is going to be a fantastic event and we are thrilled you will be part of its success! Please read the below information thoroughly. We appreciate your cooperation.

Just a reminder: Glowfest this year is at Slayter Creek Park and not back at Anna High School, like last year.

Please read the below information thoroughly. We appreciate your cooperation.

 

About The Event

The Anna Glow Fest is an event that is complimentary (free) to all guests. Admission to the festival, parking, Kid’s Fun Zone, games and trick or treating is all funded with the help of our generous sponsors. This year’s balloon festival will also include vendor shopping, a food court, live music, costume contest, car show and the star attraction…HOT AIR BALLOONS!

Location

The festival takes place at Slayter Creek Park, W. Rosamond Parkway Anna, TX  75409. Check in will be located on Rosamond Parkway (off of Hwy 5). Please follow “vendor check in” or “vendor only” signs.

Food Vendors

The City of Anna requires a temporary permit for any sale of food and/or beverages. The cost is $25. Contact Cliff Edwards for more information 972-548-5585 or go to http://www.collincountytx.gov/development_services/Pages/food_service_forms.aspx

Parking

The vendor parking area is on the east side of the ball field at the park (see separate map for more details). Excess parking is at the Anna High School where there will be buses to bring you to and from the park.

***PLEASE NOTE: If you park by the ball field you will not be able to move your vehicle until 8 pm when the event closes, no exceptions. The park entrance will be closed to vehicle traffic at 11:30am and will reopen at 8pm after the event closes.

The event will conclude at 8 pm and tear down will start at 8 pm. Due to the street closing and pedestrian safety, no vehicles will be allowed in the vendor area until 8pm.

Check-in Process

An attendant will meet you as you enter the park and direct you to the vendor area. When you reach “vendor row,” the event manager will then direct you to your vending space. All spaces are numbered and pre-assigned. You will receive your assignment upon check in.

Set Up

Vendors can begin set up at 8:30 am and we ask that everything with your booth is set up and ready to go by 11:30 am. If you feel you need more time to set up, please let us know ASAP. You will be permitted to drive to your booth area for set up and tear down; however, no vehicles will be allowed in or out of the park between 11:30am and 8:00pm – NO EXCEPTIONS.

Please note this is subject to change depending on weather. Any vehicle not relevant to providing your service must be moved to the designated parking area no later than 11:30 am

*If you are bringing a trailer with your sale items, we ask that you be on site promptly at 8:30 am to set up.*

Vendor Space

Vendor space is 10×10 (unless you made prior arrangements). You will need to bring your own table, chairs, and tent if you would like one.

Lighting and Electric

We will have light towers in the park to illuminate the vending area. Electricity will be provided only to those vendors who made prior arrangements (one 15 amp 110 volt circuit); however you are welcome to bring your own generator. Please bring your own extension cords.

Trash

Trash cans and dumpsters are eager to take your trash. Please clean your area upon your departure from the park. We do not require a trash deposit for this event because all vendors in the past have been AWESOME with regards to cleaning their area. Let’s keep that trend going!
