RULES and REGULATIONS
This is a one-day event on Saturday, September 14. Vendors can begin set-up at 10:00AM and must be ready by 12:30AM. You will have an assigned area and will need to check in with the vendor coordinator before unloading and/or setting up.
The sale of ceremonial items such as: Sage, Sweetgrass, Cedar, Pipes, Eagle/Hawk feathers are prohibited. If a vendor is found to be selling these items, they will be asked to leave and fees will not be refunded. This rule is strictly enforced.
Any sales of weapons-like items require a bill of sale receipt. It is the vendor’s responsibility to provide signage stating “No sale to minors”. No toys that replicate weapons will be sold. We also prohibit the sale of carnival items such as plastic toys, noisemakers, whistles, snap-its or poppers, any mass-produced non-Indian made items, etc.
COMPLIANCE WITH INDIAN ARTS AND CRAFTS ACT FOR VENDORS
The Native American Youth & Family Center (NAYA) complies with the U.S. Department of Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act (P.L. 101-644). This Federal Act states that it is illegal to offer or display for sale, or sell, any art or craft product in a manner that falsely suggests it is American Indian produced, an American Indian product, or the product of an American Indian tribe. Therefore, we are requesting all vendors claiming their work is Native American made to post signage that they are in compliance with the Indian Arts and Crafts Act (IACA).
NAYA will provide garbage cans in and around the vending area. All vendors are expected to keep their space clean and make sure area is clean once event is over.
NO pets allowed. You and your pet will be asked to leave. This is to ensure the safety of all attendees. Only service animals will be permitted on site.
NAYA will provide one 10ft x 10ft space per vendor for $40.00. NAYA will NOT provide table or seating. Vendors must bring their own setup (such as table(s), chairs, canopy, lights, etc.), but not exceed their 10×10 space. Tables are available to rent for $10.
If chosen as a vendor, all payments will be due by Friday, May 3rd at 5:00PM to NAYA Family Center. Acceptable forms of payment are: Cash, Cashier’s or Business Check or Money Order. Once you are informed that you are selected as a vendor, please inform the vendor coordinator how you plan to pay.
COMPLIANCE: RULES AND REGULATIONS
All vendors are asked to abide the rules set by the Native American Youth & Family Center. These rules are for your safety and for the benefit of all in attendance. A space will be assigned to you. That is your permanent space unless authorized to move by the vendor coordinator. If any issues come up during the event, please inform a NAYA Staff member or the Vendor Coordinator.
ALL RULES ARE STRICTLY ENFORCED
