NEW 2019 MERCHANDISE VENDOR INFORMATION
In an effort to create space for a more interactive and activity-oriented Swiss Days event, we will be using part of the grass field, where vendors have been previously, to accommodate those activities. The layout for vendor booths will be changing, and we are having less vendor booths overall. The booths will still be located on the grass field, near all of the events, which we anticipate will provide plenty of patrons near the booths. All vendor applications will be reviewed before a jury to decide which vendors will be approved for Swiss Days. We will be very selective, and seek to provide an assortment of merchandise for our patrons. APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED UNTIL MAY 15, 2019, at which time they will be reviewed. Booths will not be approved based upon “first come, first serve” as we are focusing on providing a variety of merchandise for our patrons. These changes should not effect food booth vendors.
