Cedars of Lebanon Vendor Information

SMRC wants to express our appreciation for your participation in Cedars of Lebanon 36th Annual Hamfest. If you were a part of the 34th Annual Hamfest, you know that the reason it was so successful was because of the vendor participation. Many of the vendors last year experienced sales beyond their expectations, and one vendor exceeded his total yearly sales for one of his radios.

This years event is is in the same location with the main display area stretching over 250 yards. The main road running through the venue is about 12 feet wide so parking will have to be planned carefully. We are providing a turn-around area at the North end of the main road for those who must leave before the end of the event. There are some areas where parking will be limited to one side of the road but pop-ups and tables can be set up on both sides of the road. 

Each rental space will be designated as a 10 feet by 10 feet display area providing plenty of space for those selling from their tailgates or under protective structures. Spaces can be rented for $7.50 until July 15, 2016; after that time they will rent for $10 until the day of the event. There are several spots available for larger vendors that will accomodate an RV (40' X 20'), and will be first come, first served for $40 ($30 for early registration). Generators can be utilized with prior notification. Other needs will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis but we will seek to provide maximum flexibility where possible.

Following the format we established in 2013 and 2014, it is our goal to have drawings for door prizes throughout the entire event. Patrons will spend a little extra time walking through vendor displays as they wait on that special prize and the longer they spend looking, the more products they may consider purchasing. However, to make this work, we need lots of door prizes. So as we did last year, if you donate a product or service with a $50 market value or more, your space will be provided at no extra charge. We will even extend that benefit to higher valued prizes so let us know what you have in mind and we will work together to provide the best outcome for your business.

As you know, if you participated last year, our preparedness vendors found our tailgate event to be very productive. This approach is unique and works for both the ham and the prepareness community. It brings two communities together to access products and services that have interests to both. As a vendor, you have a new deomographic to which you can show your wares. It really is a great approach that worked very well last year and we anticipate even greater success this year.
