We are always looking for companies with new or different cuisines, a variety of offerings, popular markets, and the willingness to join us as partners in making a professional and financially successful fair. Our four day fair brings in an attendance of approximately 20,000 people.
APPLICATIONS AND SELECTION: On or about February 1, 2022, a notice will be published in the Lewiston Tribune and on the fair website, www.npcfair.org that applications are being accepted. Applications will be considered upon space availability. Selection of exhibitor/vendor by fair management considers, but is not limited to, the following: Cuisine (Variety/Specialty), similarity of cuisine, previous experience/references, infrastructure needs (space, power, water), local vs non-local. All vendors must submit an application.
Applications are due either online or by mail by April 1, 2022. An application deposit of $200 is due at the time the application is submitted. If you are offered a space, it is anticipated that contracts will be issued the first part of May. If a contract is awarded, a signed contract and the 50% of the remaining total amount due (less the $200 Application Deposit) is due by June 1, 2022. Payment in full will be due no later than August 1, 2022. Cancellations after July 6, 2022 will forfeit application deposit. Any cancellations after August 31, 2022 will forfeit all funds paid. If the Fair is able to resell the space, the funds paid will be returned.
All selected booths will need to be in compliance with all Fire Codes.
If a booth is not offered to applicant, the $200 application deposit will be refunded to the Vendor.
For the best interest of the fair, management reserves the right to assign booth locations at their discretion. Efforts are made to give previous fair exhibitors/vendors their first choice of location. All applications must include a picture (preferred) or sketch of the proposed booth or trailer set up.
RULE VIOLATION DEPOSIT: All Vendors must pay a $125 Rule Violation Deposit as part of the contract. Deposits will be returned no later than October 31, 2022, providing the vendor has not violated any part of the application information, application, contract or Vendor Handbook. Signature on your contract verifies you have read and understand these documents.
PRODUCTS TO BE SOLD: The application must list a complete menu that includes: name of item, description, quantity given and price. Any products not listed on or attached to your application will not be sold. Fair Management reserves the right to prohibit the selling of any item that infringes on the menu items of another vendor. Variety of menu and type of cuisine will also be taken into account when assigning vendor booth space locations.
Any changes to the approved list of items to be sold must be requested in writing by June 30, 2022. A written notice of the decision will be returned to the vendor by July 30, 2022.
APPEAL PROCESS & PROCEDURES: Fair Management is under the direction of Nez Perce County Fair Board. Any disputes arising out of or relating to the Vendor Application Process shall be resolved by submitting a written letter addressed to the Nez Perce County Fair Board by August 1, 2022 in order to be reviewed at a regularly scheduled meeting of the Nez Perce County Fair Board.
