Please review all of the vendor information on this page before you fill out the vendor application.
The Fuji Exhibit Hall in Carson City is a wonderful indoor facility - no need for canopies! A kitchen and bathrooms are located inside the Hall. A 10x10 booth space is only $100 for artists and $150 for commercial vendors for the 3-day weekend. Tables are available for rent as well as electricity.
Fuji Exhibit Hall will be open on Friday, 8am until 5pm, for vendor set up. Then we will open to the public from 5pm to 8pm. All vendors are expected to have their booths ready for the public promptly at 5pm.
Applicants whose merchandise is their own personal gourd, basket, or wood art will register as private artist vendors. To better support our artists, imported, mass-produced items will not be acceptable for sale.
Those selling tools, dyes, books, and craft related supplies must register as commercial vendors.
Nevada Gourd Society reserves the right to determine eligibility issues.
All applications must be received by August 15, 2019.
No cancellation refunds after September 1, 2019.
