The Fair is Coming:
Thursday, October 22nd
to Sunday, November 1st
Returning Vendors 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 August 7th, the deadline for returning Vendors to reserve their space. 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 August 7th, 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 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 2019 Fair. You may pay to full amount if you like. Returning Vendors have been emailed a new application and must submit their application with payment on or before August 7th to reserve their space. If we have not heard from you by August 7th, your space will be opened to the public for rental. A Returning Vendor, who submits an application after August 7th will be subject to a late penalty making the total cost $385.00. This late penalty does not apply to new Vendors.
Mail the completed application along with your check, made payable to MACC, to MACC PO BOX 204455
MARTINEZ, GA 30917
