By March 4, 2024No Comments

Welcome to the Soddy-Daisy Fall Festival Vendor Information Hub! This page will be regularly updated with all the essential information you need for a successful experience as a vendor at our event. Please bookmark this page and check back frequently for updates.

Vendor Setup:

Address: 190 Depot St, Soddy-Daisy, TN 37379

Entry Point:
Vendors MUST enter at Durham Street for setup.

All vendors must check in at the Keep Soddy-Daisy Beautiful Booth before setting up.

EPB has provided WiFi for vendors and KSDB volunteers at the festival. Please ask for the login information when you check in on Saturday before the festival. Please do not share the login information with the public so we can keep the system from being overloaded.

For urgent matters, text Cindi at 602-491-7037 or Nate at 541-414-4660. Calls may not be answered during setup or the festival.

Provided Amenities:
Keep Soddy-Daisy Beautiful will allocate space for your booth only. Canopies, tables, and chairs are NOT provided and must be arranged by the vendor.

Vendor Spots:

  • Family-Friendly Requirement: This is a family-friendly event. All vendor booths must display only family-friendly and appropriate materials. Any content that does not meet this standard will not be permitted.
  • Space Allocation: Vendors are required to setup their booths a few feet away from the walking sidewalk. This ensures that pedestrians have ample space to stand and walk, particularly when the horse carriage is passing through. The added distance also facilitates smoother traffic flow during the event.
  • No Assigned Spaces: There will be no assigned spaces at the festival this year. Vendor spots are first-come, first-serve and will be marked on-site. A volunteer will assist you in finding an appropriate setup location if you have any issues.
  • Flag Removal: After setting up your booth, please remove the marking flags from your allocated space. A volunteer will come around to collect them.
  • Electricity: Electricity is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Vendors must bring and secure their own electrical cords.
  • Safety: Vendors are responsible for ensuring their booths are free of public hazards, such as unsecured extension cords.
  • Operating Hours: Vendors are required to stay open until 3 pm and cannot break down their booth and leave until after 3 pm.
  • Weather Monitoring: We will monitor the weather and make announcements in case of any weather events that would require vendors to take down their booths early.

Vendor Setup Schedule:

  • Friday
    • 3 pm to 6 pm (day before setup)
    • There will be police presence and a vendor staying overnight at the park on Friday for security but we do not make any guarantees and it is ultimately up to you to secure your items.
  • Saturday
    • Setup starts at 7 am on Saturday. All vendors must be at the park no later 9 am and complete setup by 9:30 am on Saturday. Festival starts at 10am and some visitors will show up early, so it is imperative vendors are there by 9 am and setup by 9:30 am.
    • Late Arrivals: Vendors arriving after 9 am will be directed to an alternate location outside the main vendor area due to pedestrian safety concerns.

Vendor Parking:

Most vendors will be able to park near their booths in designated areas shown on the map above.
