Dickens in Downtown Plano
Be a part of everyone's favorite holiday tradition, and join our Vendor Village at Dickens on Friday, December 6th in Downtown Plano. We're looking for booths that will sell unique or gift-giving appropriate items for the holiday season! If you are a service that would like to participate, please be aware that you will need to provide an activity.
You will be responsible for your own table, chairs, tent, weights, outdoor-rated extension cords, clamps, or any other equipment you may need to display your items.
There will be a limited number of food vendor spaces available to ensure everyone is successful. Food vendors will be selected based on diversity of selection offered. This means that we will have to deny multiple food vendors offering the same product.
If you have further questions, you can email Haley Gatlin at firstname.lastname@example.org
I understand the City of Plano Dickens Vendor Village is for vendors selling items that would be considered unique holiday gifts. I agree to set-up and be ready for sales by 5:00pm on the day of the event, unless I notify the City of Plano's Arts, Culture & Heritage Manager by close of business on November 1. I agree to remain onsite until the closing of the event at 9:30pm. I understand that violation of these requirements will forfeit my fee and the ability to participate in future events sponsored by the City of Plano.
Entry Form and photographs must be submitted in one application. Application and payment due November 8.
Payments are strongly encouraged to be made through the online portal, which will be provided to you upon your selection to participate in the event. Alternate payments should be made out to the City of Plano and mailed to City of Plano Special Events, 1509 H Avenue, Plano, TX 75074. Your application will not be considered complete until payment has been received. To pay over the phone, contact Haley Gatlin at 972-941-7288. We can accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.
Cancellation Refund Policy:
Artist / Artisan
Organization must have active 501(c)(3) certificate and submit documentation as such with application.
Any for-profit entity, including independent consultants for other commercial organizations, that obtains revenue through the sale of goods and services. Excludes food & beverage providers.
Be Specific and Include All Items. Food & beverage providers: please provide your menu here.
Please understand that we have limited booth space and want all booths to be appropriate for this event. We are looking for vendors that are selling items that would be good for unique holiday gifts and not booths looking to market professional services (unless in form of a gift card) and/ or booths giving out information only. Once the application is received, the event organizers will determine if you are a good fit for this event and contact you within the week. We also do not want vendors selling the same items. In that case, the first vendor of that type to apply and pay will have the opportunity to be at Dickens.
Vendor must commit to staffing a booth and offering services during all festival hours. For good and valuable
considerations received, the undersigned agrees to indemnify and hold harmless, the Historic Downtown Plano
Association, the City of Plano, its members, officers, directors, employees, sponsors, volunteers, contractors and agents
from any and all liabilities, obligations, claims, damages, diminution in value, costs, and expenses (including all court costs
and reasonable attorney fees) (collectively, “claims”) that the undersigned may suffer or incur prior to, during, or following
participation of the event in the Downtown Plano Arts District, including any injury to persons or property under my
control or to persons or property of my agents, employees or invitees from any cause, including but not limited to theft or
loss of property. The undersigned recognizes the hazards of participation in an outdoor event and assumes all risks of
participation; refunds will not be given in the event of inclement weather. In consideration of the City of Plano allowing me to participate in Dickens and being aware of the possible injuries that could occur to me as a result of that participation, I, on behalf of myself, release all City of Plano officials, employees, and agents from any and all injuries and damages whatsoever arising from my participation in Dickens.
I, my heirs and representatives, agree to indemnify, save and hold harmless the City of Plano, its officials, employees and agents from any and all claims made by me or my insurer for injuries or damages related to the Plano Dickens event.
I agree that the City of Plano, its officials, employees, agents, and representatives have the right to use photographs of me taken at Dickens without payment to me.
