Our event will be held on October 7, 8, 14, and 15th, 2017
The Spoon River Valley Scenic Drive welcomes vendors and crafters with quality displays. Acceptable product lines are to be family-oriented and in keeping with the values that are traditional for rural America. The Scenic Drive Associates ask vendors to dress in turn-of-century attire and to help reflect the rich history of our Spoon River Country.
The Spoon River Valley Scenic Drive is a major touring event and one of the largest festivals of its kind. Those who are interested in being a sanctioned and registered vendor for the Fall Festival should carefully read the information below.
Registration contract forms may be downloaded electronically from this page in Adobe Acrobat format or by writing to Fall Festival Chairperson Robbin Kost. Vendors may email information requests to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need help to find a suitable site, contact the same address.
The Fall Festival consists of sanctioned sites and areas throughout Fulton County, IL and along the 100 miles plus of our Scenic Drive routes. Each site is managed locally by an area representative or site manager. Get in touch with us to request a complete site listing.
Vendors who want to participate in the Drive should download the vendor registration contract form from this website (Adobe Acrobat Reader is needed). This form may also be requested by calling 309-647-8980 or writing a request to Spoon River Valley Scenic Drive.
The registration contract form should not be completed until a local arrangement has been made, in whatever way.
Vendors should contact the representatives and/or site managers at their location of preference and make local arrangements with the individual site for booth space and payment of local space fees.
Once accepted as a vendor at a site, the vendor should fill out the registration contract form for Spoon River Valley Scenic Drive and sign the form. The form should then be mailed to Fall Festival Chairperson Robbin Kost along with the correct registration fee. Checks should be payable to Spoon River Valley Scenic Drive.
All vendors, except for food vendors from outside Fulton County:
$50 – prior to September 1
$75 – on or after September 1
Food vendors from outside Fulton County:
$100 – prior to September 1
$150 – on or after September 1
Vendors are asked to contribute 10% of their net profits, not gross profits, to the Scenic Drive Associates following the end of the Fall Festival and prior to November 1, if possible.
These moneys are spent largely on advertising, promotion, toilet facilities, and necessary administrative costs. This helps to ensure that the Spoon River Valley Scenic Drive continues to be one of the major motor tour festivals in IL and the surrounding states.
Food vendors are to provide a certificate of product liability insurance with their registration form and fees. Food vendors should also contact the Fulton County Health Department for health department regulations and permit information.
