IMPORTANT: NO OVERNIGHT ARRIVALS or PARKING PRIOR TO JULY 3RD WITHOUT PERMISSION IN WRITING

SPIRIT OF AMERICA FIELD: Strict regulations are in force regarding the Spirit of America Field. Vendor booth spaces will be assigned prior to the event and will be given to you at the Main Gate Check-in Tent. You will not be able to set up your booth unless you are guided by Event Personnel. All vendor vehicles must be parked in designated parking areas. Each vendor will be issued ONE Vendor Parking Pass per 20’ booth space.  This allows vendors to set-up and break-down near the
field. Please note that traffic is limited once the festival begins; therefore, if you need to leave during the event, re-entering the park will be extremely difficult.

EVENT STANDARDS:  Vendors may sell only pre-approved products or services at event. Any item of service deemed inappropriate for the event will not be permitted. Spirit of America holds the right to ask any vendor who fails to remove items previously deemed inappropriate to leave without refund.  Remember, this is a family event. If the product or service is not appropriate for a child’s eyes, it is not appropriate for out event.

FOOD VENDORS: The State of Alabama now offers an Exemption for Food Service at a Temporary Event. This means that you will not have to be inspected by a health inspector; however, the Spirit of America will have guidelines for operations that will be given to you when you check in.  If you do not meet these requirements, the Spirit of America board reserves the right to ask you to leave the festival without refund.

Electricity: Vendors requiring power will have to rely on their own power. There will be no electricity offered.

WATER/SOFT DRINKS/ICE: Pepsi products, including water, will be for sale for $1:00 per bottle from a Pepsi truck onsite by the case (24). ALL retail prices on Pepsi products, including water, will be regulated at $2.00 as to provide fair trade for all vendors. NO WATER of SOFT DRINK GIVE-A-WAYS WILL BE PERMITTED. ICE will be made available for sale on site. You are not required to purchase our ice, but it is available for your convenience. We will have “Runners” available to you to take Pepsi/Ice/Water orders and deliver back to your location.

FREEBIES: To promote your business, we ask that each vendor offer one free item to the children’s activities as prizes to the kids during the weekend.  This item is up to you and should be appropriate for a boy or girl ages 5-12 and have value of at least $3.00. We appreciate your generosity.

SOLICITING: Soliciting beyond the boundaries of your booth is strictly prohibited without prior written permission from the Festival board. If you are found violating this policy, you will be asked to leave the festival.

If you are new to the Spirit of America Festival, you must submit at least one photograph or detailed drawing of the trailer or booth you plan to display, in addition to your completed application. Please include dimensions of your trailer/booth. Booths exceeding 20 linear feet will be charged an additional booth fee.
