The Texas State Arts & Crafts Fair will accept applications for the upcoming festival until March 31. It is important that your application states your electrical and space needs. All applications must be accompanied by a proposed menu with pricing. In addition, a photograph that represents your operation is required.
Concessionaires are restricted from selling sodas, water, or alcohol. Lemonade and limeade sales are limited to Lemonade and Limeade stands.
TACEF accepts 10-12 vendors for the Fair. No acceptance decisions will be made until the application deadline has passed. If the deadline has not passed, no vendors have been accepted or chosen and TACEF offices will not have available information regarding vendor openings.
Decisions for participation are based on the following considerations:
Site and space needs for the event.
Aesthetics: TACEF requires a fresh, clean, and festive presentation.
Menu variety: A well-rounded menu of food choices for attendees is preferred. Saturation of any food type is discouraged.
Successful compliance with health regulations.
References: TACEF will check references of all new applicants.
Cooperation with Fair officials, policies, guidelines and health department restrictions.
History: All things being equal, the Fair considers the vendor’s history with the Fair.
Each vendor is responsible for their own sales tax. Kerr County sales tax rate is 6.75%.
To participate, you are required to sign a Concessionaire Contract, pay a booth space fee, and any electrical fees. Proof of liability insurance naming the Texas Arts and Crafts Educational Foundation as an additional insured is required.
A refundable $200 clean up deposit is required as a separate check. Deposit checks will be held until the close of the Fair and will be returned provided correct clean up protocol is followed. All trash, food, and grease must be removed and placed in the proper receptacle in order to receive a deposit return.
If your application is accepted, you will receive a letter of notification, an approved menu, a Food Service Agreement and Information Packet.
After you submit your application online you must submit payment via mail. Two checks are required: one check for your booth/electrical needs and one check for your deposit. When filling out the application please make note of your selections and corresponding costs and submit the correct payment amount. Checks should be mailed to TACEF with a copy of the application receipt that will be emailed to you upon submission. Checks will be held until the application is accepted; checks for those accepted will be cashed April 15.
