First let me thank you for your past participation in the Frankenmuth Auto Fest.
Without your presence our little festival would not quite be what it is today.
Having said that I would like to bring to your attention some changes to our vendor agreement.
We have made changes in the park rules, for our show car participants as well as our vendor area.
PLEASE READ THE VENDOR AGREEMENT IN ITS ENTIRETY.
- The primary change is set up day. Due to the current make up of the show it now starts on Friday.
- With show cars filling the park at 8:00am Friday all Vendor Display material needs to be in the park on THURSDAY Sept 7th, 2023.
- WE WILL NOT ALLOW VENDOR VEHICLES INTO THE VENDOR AREA ON FRIDAY OR SATURDAY.
- IF NEEDED YOU CAN SET UP ON FRIDAY, BUT YOUR PRODUCT, TRAILER, OR NEEDED MATERIALS NEEDS TO BE ON YOUR SPOT BY THURS EVENING.
We look forward to seeing you on Thurs. September 7th, 2023.
If you are a first time vendor, please send a photo of your setup to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can ensure you will fit into your spot.
As always you can call me with questions,
Frankenmuth Auto Fest Vendor Manager.
