Countdown to the 2023 Spring Fair
Friday, April 21st
to Sunday, April 30th, 2023
Returning Vendors for our Spring Fair will receive an invitation to return to the Fair via an email.
New Vendors who are using our website to submit an application, please note that your application is subject to the approval of the Merchants Association of Columbia County (MACC). We do not open any new spaces to the public until February 21.
We typically have open spaces each year and spaces are filled on a first come first serve basis. We have a limited number of spaces and we try not to have more than two vendors with the same product or services. We DO NOT offer any exclusivity regarding products or services. Any application received before February 20, will be held pending a review of products/services and open spaces. If for any reason, you are not selected, your check will be returned to you. Lastly, we are not setup to take credit card payments before the Spring Fair starts. For this reason, you will need to attach a check with your application. Any Vendor requiring a W9 can be provided one.
We require a completed application with a minimum 50% deposit to reserve a space for the 2023 Spring Fair. You may pay the full amount if you like. Returning Vendors have been emailed a new application and must submit their application with payment on or before February 20 to reserve their space. If we have not heard from you by February 20, your space will be opened to the public for rental. A Returning Vendor, who submits an application after February 20 will be subject to a late penalty making the total cost $450.00 for Open Registration.
Mail the completed application along with your check, made payable to MACC, to:
PO BOX 204455
MARTINEZ, GA 30917
Questions can be addressed to Carol Gardner at Vendormacc@gmail.com. There may be a limited number of outdoor vendor spaces available. Please use the OUTDOOR vendor application form if you desire outdoor space. The Merchants Association of Columbia County is a non-profit civic organization that use fair proceeds to make charitable contributions to deserving organizations in our local community. Thank you very much for your interest in our fair. We look forward to working with you to make your exhibit a success. See you soon.
