Junkstock Vendor Application
Are you a musician wanting to rock the Junkstock stage? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Hey Dove, Thank you for your interest in Junkstock! We are so happy to be hosting two shows this year: April 6 -8 and September 28-30, 2018. Junkstock is held at Sycamore Farms, a 116 year old horse farm located on the western edge of Omaha, Nebraska. The farm is picturesque, a beautiful setting located on 135 acres, with sunsets that will melt your little hippie heart. Sycamore Farms consists of two old horse arena barns, sycamore stables, the old livery, a farmhouse built in 1901, a gypsy wagon, a couple of quaint cottages, some fun outbuildings, winding gravel roads, a big fishing pond, and super old trees that make it such a groovy and one of a kind location for Junkstock .We are so very lucky to have the opportunity to be able to utilize this charming farm year after year. The booths will be spread throughout the farm and in the buildings giving vendors a perfect backdrop to show off your beautiful displays. Junkstock has anywhere from 9-15 bands throughout the weekend, many fun and unique attractions and photo ops, and over 20 different food & drink trucks to choose from. Now’s your chance to hop in your slug bug, channel your free spirit and show us your nifty wares. Just click the Vendor Application Button and you could be a part of all the fun!
Junkstock is a juried show. Set-up and display are very important to us and all of our customers who come from all around the world to visit the farm! Don’t forget to send us photos of your look, displays, and creative merchandising talents after you fill out the online application. If you have not sold at a show before, please do not hesitate to apply! We love dreamers and creative souls that are pursuing their visions and passions.
This is not a flea-market type of show. Vendors are expected to have their booths styled in an attractive and creative manner. We are looking for unique and creative displays. Merchandise must be displayed in a way that looks pleasing and inviting. Vendors must have at least one person working in their booth at all times. If you will need relief for lunch, etc., please bring a helper with you.
We have indoor booth locations and outdoor locations. We no longer have vendors in the “field” locations. Some outdoor booths may be on portions of a gravel path that runs throughout the farm and some are on grassy areas. Some of the indoor booths are on wood floors, some are on gravel, some on cement, some have walls, and some have no walls, it’s a fun mixture. A tent is encouraged for outdoor spaces but not required. You must provide your own tent or we can recommend tent rental companies in our area. We prefer white tents, but are willing to work with certain situations.
Each vendor will be provided a vendor badge on a lanyard identifying you and your helpers as a vendor. This will need to be worn at all times. It will need to be worn to have gate access for set up and during the show. It is your responsibility to get the vendor badges to your helper. If they arrive at the gate without it, they will be expected to pay regular admission.
Vendors are expected to keep their booth free of tripping hazards Please keep everyone safe and keep an aisle that is clear of merchandise at all times.
We are happily accepting vintage and handmade artisan vendors!
We are looking for unique/ one of a kind, interesting, current items that our customers would be happy to see for sale at Junkstock! We do not accept vendors selling any “new” items. No buy/sell/brand new products or reproductions are allowed at Junkstock.
If you wish to attend in both April & September, we recommend applying for both now, as they usually fill right away.
If you are applying for both shows, and want to reserve the SAME SPACE for both shows, the deposit for September will be due at the same time as the April show fees are due. No guarantee for the same space for the September show will be made unless deposit is paid for with the April show fees.
If approved to be a vendor, you will receive an email and text and information for remitting payment. You will have 10 days from the date of that email to remit payment to secure your space. If not paid by the due date, your space may be offered to another applicant. (Credit Card processing is available for an additional processing fee).
All payments are non-refundable, so before you commit, be certain you are able to attend.
