    4. AGREEMENT OF PARTICIPATION

      I understand the Plano Christmas Market is for handmade/homemade crafts and my booth will contain no less than ninety percent (90%) handmade items. I further understand items are to be handmade by me, the exhibitor. I agree to show the days of the Plano Christmas Market, unless I notify the Plano Parks & Recreation Department of my cancellation by the Friday, October 4, 2019 deadline. I agree to remain until the posted closing time each day. I understand that violation of these requirements will forfeit my fee and privilege to participate in future events sponsored by the Plano Parks & Recreation Department.

    5. Entry Guidelines:
      The Plano Christmas Market is held at the Carpenter Park Recreation Center. Photographs representing all items to be sold must be uploaded with Entry Form. In addition, each application is to include a sequence of 4 photographs of the exhibitor crafting one item through different stages. This sequence of photographs may be displayed at the fair.

      The City of Plano Parks & Recreation Department reserves the right to refuse items to be sold at any time, including the days of the fair. Applicants must submit a completed Entry Form, and photos of items to be considered. Once you've been selected to participate in the Plano Christmas Market on August 16th, a link to an online payment portal will be provided to you for credit card payments. After July 31st, we will still accept applications to fill any available spots and will jury the second round by October 4th

      All items must be handmade by the exhibitor. This is a juried show. Acceptance of applicants will be based on the following:

      • 75% - Quality
      • 25% - Uniqueness

      Presentation should consist of no more than 8 photos. Food items must be packaged and sold as gifts - not for consumption on the premises. Food booths are subject to the required booth fee. Vendors of food items must have a City of Plano Health Permit.

      Exhibitors must provide their own sturdy display equipment. Tables, table covers and chairs may be provided by exhibitor. All tables must be covered. Eight foot tables are available for rental at an additional fee and must be pre-ordered by October 4.

      Hallway Table spaces are available. A limited number of spaces will be located in the entry hallway – ideal for products requiring minimal space. Hallway Table spaces are for display and sales from a single eight foot table. No display equipment may extend beyond the table.

      Set-up time is available from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, November 22, and beginning at 7 a.m. on Saturday, November 23. All booths must be operating by 8:45 a.m. on Saturday and 10:45am on Sunday. Exhibitors must remain at the fair both days and may not break down prior to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
