    2. 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 hgatlin@plano.gov

    3. Application Deadline: November 8

    4. AGREEMENT OF PARTICIPATION

      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.
