Maple Leaf Vendor Applications Available
The Carthage Chamber of Commerce is currently accepting applications for Maple Leaf Festival vendors. Art/craft vendors will be able to sell handcrafted items on the historic Carthage square before, during and after the Maple Leaf Parade on Saturday, October 15, 2016. Concessions will be available on the south side of the square. Water will be available on a very limited basis this year so get your application in early. Non-profit booth space on the Courthouse lawn is offered at no charge but is very limited.
Booth space is not guaranteed for returning vendors. In categories that limit the number of similar vendors allowed, all registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis and spaces reserved accordingly. Spaces will be reserved in the order completed application packets are received with payment. If accepted, returning vendors will be given preference in booth placement until July 1.
If you are a commercial business who would like to reach Maple Leaf visitors, we will be preparing and distributing goodie bags to visitors. If you would like to place your product/contact information in 500 of those bags for $50, contact the Carthage Chamber office.
Forms are available online at www.carthagemapleleaf.com . Art/craft and food vendor space will fill quickly. Electricity on the square is given first to concessions. Art/crafters’ requests for electricity are filled on a case by case basis.
