FOOD CONCESSION VENDING
MERCHANDISE AND EXHIBITOR VENDING
Be a part of Blues Alley! Merchandise vending is open to artists, crafters, retailers and service organizations that want to join us at the Budweiser Illinois Blues Festival. We may choose to limit the number of vendors selling similar products - priority is given on a first come, first serve basis. Vendors need prior approval of their merchandise from Jay Goldberg Events and Entertainment and must agree to all vendor guidelines listed below.
In order to assure that all vendors are in compliance with State and County regulations, please review the following guidelines in addition to the information on the vendor application:
All vendors are required to pre-register with Budweiser Illinois Blues Festival to reserve their vending area. Pre-registration can be done by downloading and printing out a vendor application and mailing it in, along with payment in full to: Budweiser Illinois Blues Festival C/O Jay Goldberg Events & Entertainment • 2232 SW Adams Street, Peoria, Illinois 61602. All vendors and products are to be pre-approved by The Budweiser Illinois Blues Festival promoters. Due to the modest vendor fees, only two (2) tickets to the event will be included. Any additional staff must purchase a ticket. All vendors must arrive at the Budweiser Illinois Blues Festival grounds by 3:00 PM on Friday, August 29, 2014. Failure to do so may mean that you may not be able to vend during the festival.
