SPRING 2017 VENDOR FAQ
MAY 5,6,7 4400 fox st. DENVER, CO
We're excited to announce the return of TheBigWonderful to downtown Denver on May 5-7, 2017! We've tweaked our format somewhat this year, moving away from weekly Saturday events and towards a new model of quarterly three-day weekend events. In addition to the May 5-7 event, we're also planning additional weekends in July, September, and December.
Below is our new vendor pricing matrix. If you've vended with us in the past, you'll realize that we've done away with the 10% of sales payment. We believe this new model will be simpler and better for everyone! If you have additional questions after reviewing the FAQ below, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What is TheBigWonderful?
We are a family-friendly, outdoor marketplace, showcasing the local mix of Mile High Talent! Our Spring 2017 event will feature a wide variety of artisan vendors, farm-fresh food trucks, live music, craft brews + cocktails, outdoor games, a kids area, and so much more.
What are the steps involved in signing up for TheBigWonderful Spring May 5-7?
1. Visit our Vendor Pricing page and “Add To Cart” the option that you prefer.
2. Complete the check out process by entering your info into the form and submitting payment.
3. You will receive a payment confirmation email and a charge on your credit card.
4. You will be notified on March 1st of final acceptance. If you are denied, a full refund will be processed at that time.
Am I guaranteed a vendor spot by submitting payment?
As always, we are a curated event. By submitting payment for one of our 2017 Vendor options, that shows us that you are ready and able to join us May 5-7th at 4400 Fox St. Denver, CO. However, that does not guarantee you will be selected to participate in the event. All vendors will be notified on March 1st of final acceptance or denial. Applicants who have been denied will receive an immediate refund.
When is the latest I can submit my vendor payment?
The deadline for Vendor Registration is February 28th, 2017, or earlier if spots are full. Once registration is closed, a wait list will be created.
We reserve the right to deny any registration, as space is limited. If a registration is denied a full refund will be provided no later than March 1st.
Booth Refunds & Transfers
We can not offer refunds or transfers of booth space if you are selected as a Spring 2017 Vendor.
Each vendor will be required to sign our 2017 Vendor Agreement before March 1st, which will be sent to you via DocuSign.
How many people do you anticipate will be in attendance?
If the weather cooperates, we believe a minimum of ~12,000 visitors will come through the gates over the weekend. It's possible the number will be quite a bit larger than that.
How many fine folks have come in the past?
Our Saturday events have ranged from a few thousand to over 10,000 the past few years. We believe our new location in downtown Denver will draw a large crowd of millennials and young families over three days.
What happened to the 10% of sales payment from past years?
We decided it would be far simpler and better for vendors and for us to just do away with the 10% of sales payment. We hope you agree!
Can I leave my booth in place for the whole weekend?
Weather dependent, we'll have the ability to secure the site with locked gates and security staff.
What is the Wonderpass?
This year, in addition to the usual $5 general admission ticket which includes access to all vendors, beer garden, game area, kid zone, etc, we've added a beer sampling tent (3-6pm) and nighttime music venue (6-10pm) that will require a separate Wonderpass ticket. Depending on the vendor package you select, you'll have some combination of general admission and Wonderpass tickets included.
What is the schedule for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday?
We're still finalizing all program details, but the gates will be open from 4-10pm on Friday, May 5th, and Noon-10pm on Saturday and Noon-6pm on Sunday.
What are the load-in and load-out details?
We'll send all of this information and more once we've selected the final vendor mix for May 5-7 in the next few weeks.
Why should I choose this event?
Well, this will be our fourth year of curating our unique mash-up of flea/craft/food truck park/beer garden/live music venue/dog park/kid playground/etc. We've become a known and beloved entity among Denver's tastemakers and millennials, and we believe the site of our May 5-7 event may be our very best yet! We'll also have the biggest music and bar lineup we've ever produced. There will also be a Cinco de Mayo theme on Friday and a Kentucky Derby theme on Saturday, May 6th. Gonna be just great.
