Food Vendor Letter

February 7, 2024

Dear Food Concessionaire,

Thank you for your interest in being a Concessionaire at the 2024 Nez Perce County Fair. Our dates this year are September 19-22. Our official application will be available on our website on March 1. The initial review of applications will take place on or after April 15.

We are anticipating that we will select the same number of food vendors/booths as we have had the past few years. However, the Fire Marshall is requiring that we leave a 10 foot space between all food vendors. While still a work in progress, our layout will be modified slightly to accommodate this. We will also be adding additional picnic tables and seating in the grass area near the Main Stage.

After spending a lot of time researching how other fairs and events structure their fees, charges, etc., we have made changes for this year’s fair. We will be transitioning from a flat fee to a percentage of sales fee structure. A minimal deposit will be due at the time the contract is issued. This deposit will be applied to your total amount due at the conclusion of fair. This year, all food vendors will be charged 20% of their after-tax sales (total sales – sales tax = commissionable amount). All sales must be rang up on a cash register or an electronic point of sale system (square, clover, etc.). We will not charge additional fees for power, etc., the 20% commission will cover all of those fees. The complete Concessionaire Handbook with all of the rules, guidelines, etc. will be available at the same time applications are available.

The Nez Perce County Fair Board is starting the Master Planning process. We know our facility and infrastructure are aging and struggle to keep up with our current power, water and sewer needs. We are looking forward to working through the process and are excited for what the future holds. This change is one of many that will help us start upgrades in a timely fashion.

We appreciate you being part of the Fair and look forward to having you join us as we celebrate “Holy Cow, We’re 80 Now!”

Sincerely,

Vanessa

Non Food Vendor Letter

February 7, 2024

Dear Non Food Vendor,

Thank you for your interest in being a vendor at the 2024 Nez Perce County Fair. Our dates this year are September 19-22. Our official application will be available on our website on March 1. The complete vendor handbook with all rules, guidelines, etc. will also be available at that time. The initial review of applications will take place on or after April 15.

Our layout is still a work in progress. The Fire Marshall is requiring that we leave a 10 foot space between all food vendors, so this will affect our outside layout. Also, our indoor booths will now be 10’x10’ instead of 8’x8’. This is based on the results of the survey that was sent to all vendors following the 2023 Fair.

After spending a lot of time researching how other fairs and events structure their fees, charges, etc., we have made changes to how booth spaces are priced. With our previous pricing structure, there was no consistency in how each booth was priced. Moving forward, all booths will be priced based on a price per square foot and location. The approved prices for the 2024 Fair are as follows:


INDOOR SPACE
10’x10’ Non-Corner ($3.50/sf)$350.00
10’x10’ Corner ($4.00/sf)$400.00
10’x20’ Non-Corner ($3.50/sf)$700.00
10’x20’ Corner (Not Aisle End-$3.75/sf)$750.00
10’x20’ Aisle End ($4.00/sf)$800.00
8’x12’ Near Doors-2 Available ($4.00/sf) $768.00

Indoor Booths include a table and chairs and 110V 20 Amp Power. Fair will provide power drop, but vendor is responsible for power cords for use within booths.


OUTDOOR SPACE
10’x10’ ($4.00/sf)$400.00
10’x10’ Prime ($4.50/sf)$450.00
15’x15’ Pillars ($4.00/sf) $600.00 – NO COVER PROVIDED

Multiple booths can be purchased and will be assigned together (ie-if you want a 10’x20’, the cost would be the same as 2 10’x10’ or $800)

Outdoor space only includes the space (no table, tent, chairs, etc). Any power or water needs must be indicated on the application. If available, 110V 20 Amp Power will be provided at no charge.


The Nez Perce County Fair Board is starting the Master Planning process. We know our facility and infrastructure are aging and struggle to keep up with our current power, water and sewer needs. We are looking forward to working through the process and are excited for what the future holds. This change is one of many that will help us start upgrades in a timely fashion.
