CRAFT AND FOOD VENDORS WILL RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING LETTER THE WEEK OF DECEMBER 23:  READ OUR VENDOR LETTER BELOW!

Dear Rose Rock Music Festival Vendor:

We are writing to invite you to reserve your vendor space at the 2014 Rose Rock Music Festival.   As a past vendor, you have first right of refusal before we offer your spot to a vendor selling like items.  We cannot guarantee there won’t be another vendor selling what you have, but we strive to provide only one booth per particular brand.   On Jan 16, 2014, all booth spaces not yet reserved will be considered open for new vendors.  Please apply by January 15, 2014 if you plan on returning this year so that we may include the name of your business in our advertising promotions.

Many of you suggested improvements and we have been working with the city to make this year’s festival the very best.   We wanted to let you know of a few changes. 

We have LOWERED initial booth fees by $25.00!  We are also offering an early bird booking discount of - $25.00 to ALL who pay IN FULL by January 15, 2014.  Noble Chamber of Commerce members will also continue to receive a -$25.00 discount.  That means ALL THREE days of the festival can cost a chamber member only $75.00.   Credit cards are also accepted on our new applications and Paypal will be a payment option as well.  

There will be more marketing exposure this year as we are working with McMahon marketing to take advantage of a bigger outreach to include social media campaigns. The application will now include space for you to include a better description of what you will have so that we may include a few words about our vendor offerings.  

The festival layout changed last year!  The stage was moved into a shady area surrounded by trees, in the grass.  And in 2014 we are adding a dance floor.  We will continue to include one or two shaded eating areas so that patrons may enjoy their food or rest out of the direct sunlight in case of another hot year! This will also provide shelter in case of rain.  Our festival stays open RAIN or SHINE!

Vendor spaces will change slightly, though the main area will still include much of the City Hall’s parking lot.  Please keep in mind that you are NOT guaranteed any particular spot and may be in a new location this year.  We will still try to give priority spaces to our loyal past vendors but it will be impossible to make any guarantees.  With the new layout, all the spaces will be more easily accessible and there really is no substandard location to be had.

We have once again increased our budget and have booked bigger and better bands with their own loyal fans, so that will bring more shoppers to our festival this year.  Our program will be posted online in March, 2014.  The entertainment is going to be the best it has ever been!

We will continue with a new and improrived NOBLE IDOL competition which will bring out more families each day – so please expect to stay the entire day to take advantage of the new crowds.  

We have a new Car Show coordinator very involved with the show circuit who will be running a bigger car show this year!  The disc golf tournament will again be held the same weekend, and those folks will also be coming to the festival.  We do expect larger than normal crowds in 2014.

When signing your application you are agreeing to keep your booth open during specific times listed on the form.  Please keep this in mind and schedule someone to cover your booth if you have to leave.  Please also note, that this is a fundraising event.  Once your application and money is received -  payment is FINAL.  REFUNDS are NOT POSSIBLE for any reason, including booking cancellations.  Substitutions prior to April 1 will be allowable when approved through this office.  THIS OFFICE WILL NOT ISSUE A REFUND FOR ANY REASON AS FUNDS RECEIVED will have already been used in the planning and execution of the festival.

We hope to see you at the Rose Rock Music Festival in 2014.  Feel free to call 872-5535 with any questions you may have or visit the website at www.nobleok.org for updates and information and for copies of all our vendor applications.

Thank you.
