Want to receive a vendor packet or join the vendor email list?

- Call Cindy at (541) 805-8563. Do not mail the packet after Aug 10th because it may not arrive before Cherry Fair day.
- You will be notified by email of your assigned vendor space(s) at least 3 days before Cherry Fair day.
- We will have your vendor spaces marked and ready for set-up by noon on the day before the Cherry Fair. We’ll have map handy, too.
- You may set up your booth (at least the equipment) on Friday.
Note: We are not responsible for any valuables left unattended overnight.
- You may drive onto the fairgrounds to set up at either entrance:
– South of Founders Hall near the corner of Hwy 237 and Church Street.
– Cove Sportsman Club on Hwy 237 west of the fairgrounds at Ascension School.
- On arrival, look for your assigned space(s) number painted on the ground.
– Can’t find your space? A Cherry Fair volunteer will be available to help.
– Go to your space and set up.

– One vehicle per vendor is permitted in the vendor parking area.
- Prepare to break down at 4pm, and vacate the property by 6pm.
Tips for Success
- Sign up early to get the best spaces and best chance for having special requests met.
- If you are last-minute sign-up (7 days or fewer to fair day), call Cindy at 541-805-8563.
- Keep a copy of the Vendor/Venue Package you sent in for registration.
- First time vending? Do a practice set-up at home to make sure you have all of the equipment and supplies you need to be productive and comfortable for an 8-hour day.
- Shade is limited, so bring a canopy to keep yourself and your goods cool and comfy.
- Speaking of comfy, bring a chair, too. Eight hours is a full day, and you will need to give your feet and knees a break now and then.
- Need power? Bring your own power strip and long extension cord.
- Keep your products and the vendor area clean. Consider bringing a small waste basket (maybe even some wet wipes or paper towels) so your customers don’t have to walk away from your booth to toss snack wrappers.
- You can leave your things overnight if you set up on Friday.* Please make sure your area is protected from the weather and your items are reasonably secured.
- Think of your vendor spaces as including the few feet in front of your booth — the space that will be occupied by customers, whom you want to keep in your selling space as long as you can.
- Bring plenty of extra change. There are no banks or ATMs in Cove.
- Accept multiple types of currency (cash, check, and credit/debit) if possible. People spend more if they don’t need cash on hand.
- Most important: Have fun with a lot of great people!
*Cherry Fair, Cove Community Association, and Ascension School are not responsible for the loss or theft of any items left unattended. Thankfully, Cove is a pretty safe and honest community.
