Become a Holiday Marketplace Vendor
Join us as Vendor of the Holiday Marketplace in Libbey Park on November 13 and 14.
The Ojai Festival Women’s Committee invites you to continue to be a part of our annual holiday tradition by becoming a Marketplace Vendor. As one of the largest financial supporters of the Ojai Music Festival and BRAVO music education, the Women’s Committee is proud of the essential role we play in the legacy of the Festival in our community.
The Committee is working hard to create the ultimate Holiday Marketplace at Libbey Park on November 13-14, with over 50+ booths offering the perfect item on everyone’s shopping list. To complete the holiday experience we will have musical performances at the Gazebo, carolers wandering the market, and Santa handing out candy canes. Guests can enjoy holiday drinks and treats at the Café and visit the Gift Wrapping Station to wrap purchases. Finally, the Park will be decorated with beautiful Tabletop Trees and Menorahs created by local artists, businesses, and organizations that will be part of a Silent Auction.
Your participation helps support the Festival’s BRAVO program, which provides free music education for the local public elementary students and supports the internationally renowned Ojai Music Festival celebrating its 76th year on June 9-12, 2022.
We invite you to be part of making 2021 our most successful Marketplace to date!
Please let us know if you are interested in attending, as the booth locations fill up quickly. Ojai has been busy with the return to public gathering and getting beyond our “bubbles”, so we are looking forward to a prosperous marketplace on November 13 & 14. Make sure you are part of the excitement, celebration, and the success.
A $50 participation fee is required to hold your space
What is the cost to participate? The cost to participate is a $50 booth reservation fee to secure your space and 20% of your space for the two-day event. In years past, the percentage of sales was 23% to cover the cost of the merchant fees for credit cards. In the spirit of collaboration, the board has decided to reduce the percentage of sales and continue to cover the costs of credit card fees.
How do Buyers pay for their purchases? Money from all Marketplace sales will be collected at a central cashier’s table. We have the ability to accept most credit cards and will collect and pay the sales tax. We will distribute net proceeds from the sales to the vendors via check. The checks will be mailed to you by November 22nd.
Do I need to bring my own set up equipment? We strongly encourage you to bring your own set up: pop-up canopy, tables, chairs, stands, tablecloths, extension cords, signage, and means of securing your merchandise overnight, etc. If you absolutely need us to rent something for you (canopy, tables, chairs, etc.) – please indicate so on the vendor agreement form and we will contact you regarding the cost. Access to electricity in the park is limited. If electricity is essential, we will attempt to accommodate you. You will be responsible for safely taping down any electrical extension cords. The standard booth size is 10×10 ft.
Is there Security? Libbey Park is an open air, public park. The Ojai Festival Women’s Committee will provide overnight security on Saturday night. The Committee will not be responsible for lost or stolen goods or property. The Marketplace will be open to the public 10:00am to 4:00pm on Saturday and Sunday. The event will take place rain or shine. You will be required to have your merchandise set up by 9:30am on Saturday and remove it no later than 4:00pm on Sunday.
