TCWES Fall Vendor Event
Join us for a Fall vendor event on Saturday, November 13, 2021. The show will start at 9am and end by 1pm. Event will take place outdoors in the parking lot so each vendor will have a space. The cost will be $50 per/space for vendors and $15 for student entrepreneurs. Need additional space? Just purchase 2 at checkout. Spaces will be on a first come/first serve basis the morning of set-up. You will need to provide your own table/tent/chairs if needed. We do have a few tables that we can rent out for $20 though are very limited with less than 10.
Who we are looking for: small business owners, crafters, direct sellers and kid owned companies. We will accept multiple crafters and jewelers however, will only accept one (1) of a particular direct sales vendor. ie: we will not have two (2) from the same company.
Please note if the weather is extreme (ie: snow or constant downpour) we will move our event to the Spring and there will be no refunds. We will make the call within 24-48 hours. Our spring date will tentatively be April 2, 2022.
Cancellation & Refund Policy:
Cancellations made prior to 30 (thirty) days of the show will receive a refund less $10 administrative fee. No refunds will be given after October 13, 2021.
By registering, Vendor understands and agrees that the T. Clay Wood PTO, in its discretion or as required by an order of the Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, may cancel, reschedule, or limit the size of the event. If that occurs and the PTO does not hold the event as scheduled or limits participation in a way that keeps Vendor from participating, the PTO may, in its discretion, refund the Vendor or grant the Vendor a credit in the full amount of the vendor fee actually paid to the PTO and usable only toward the vendor fee for a future TCWES PTO event to be held within 375 days of the scheduled date of November event. Current tentative backup date would be April 2, 2022. Vendor waives all other legal remedies if the PTO makes such a refund or grants such a credit.
