Greek Fest Vendors

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the process as to how to apply for consideration as a vendor?

Vendors can e-mail their inquiries to: vendors@fresnogreekfest.com. (The e-mail is active from April – August.) In the e-mail, be sure to include your name, address, & phone number.  Also include what type of items you sell, pictures of your products or web site where they can be viewed, price range of the products, references/names of other events where you have sold your products, and any other information you feel is necessary.

What is the time frame for becoming a vendor?

Contracts are sent out to former vendors first in April to confirm their attendance. Beginning approximately mid-May, based on available spots and the type of products other vendors sell, new vendors are offered a contract to join the Greek Fest vendor team.

What type of vendors are we seeking?

Our vendor area is Greek-styled “agora” shopping area. We typically have vendors selling products such as: religious items, jewelry, ceramics, clothing, children’s items, home décor, honey, soaps & lotions, sea salts, hats, t-shirts, candles, purses, original paintings, hair and other accessories, olive wood figurines, nesting dolls, Tupperware, embellished wine glasses, belly dancing attire, bedding items, kitchen items, lamps, accessories, photos (at photo booth) and more! Many of the products come from Russia, Egypt, Armenia, Bethlehem, and of course, Greece.

Prohibited items include, but are not limited to: weapons, knives, swords or any replicas, any explosive devices, alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, and any other products not legally allowed for sale in Fresno.

When we add new vendors, we look for vendors to compliment the other vendors and ones who can offer new variety to our guests. Please note, our vendor area is not for commercial-type vendors such as solar companies, insurance or other businesses, or food vendors (hot dogs, tacos, cotton candy, etc.)

How much does it cost to rent a booth space?

Single booth: $600, double booth: $1000, triple booth: $1,400. Payment can be made in full or in two payments. Final payments are usually due by mid-July. We accept cash, check, money orders, and Visa/MasterCard.

What does the Greek Fest provide for vendors?

The Greek Fest provides a 10 x10 tent for each space, long tables (3 max. per booth), chairs (2 per booth), lights, power (20 amps max), 2- 110v outlets, general festival area security, and an enjoyable weekend!

What are the expectations of the vendors?

Vendors are to submit all required paperwork and payment by deadlines given. Vendors must have booths completely set-up and any vehicles moved off the grounds by 3:00 on Friday of the event. Set-up can be done the day before, as well. Your booth must be monitored and open for business during all hours of the festival. Festival hours are: Friday 4:00 pm – midnight, Saturday 11:00 am – midnight, and Sunday 11:00 am– 6:00 pm. Teardown is done after 6:00 pm on Sunday or it can be done on Monday morning, if special arrangements have been made. Vendors are also expected to clean up their booth space each night and discard all garbage in trash receptacles. Additionally, they are to be kind and courteous to all festival guests, other vendors and Greek Fest staff.

If I am offered a contract to participate in the festival, what do I need to submit?

Vendors must submit the Vendor Booth Rental Application/Agreement form, Vendor Information form, proof of liability insurance naming St. George Greek Church and the Greek Community of Fresno, Inc. as additional insured (available through your own insurance company), and payment.

What do vendors need to provide?

Any personal needs for their booth such as signage, credit card processing, tablecloths, etc., plus meals (food & beverages are available for purchase at the festival.)
