TYPES OF VENDORS
Most arts and crafts are accepted. It is the policy of the organizing committee, however, to limit the number of booths devoted to a particular craft. When submitting this contract it is necessary to list the products you plan to exhibit to avoid any conflicts. The number of exhibits may be limited as well at the discretion of the committee.
All vendor and exhibit booths will be located in the Reardan City Park on the grass. The committee reserves the right to determine booth locations to avoid similar products or services from being next to each other and to reduce conflicting crowd lines.
SET UP TIME
You may begin booth set up after 2:00 pm on the Friday before Mule Days and after 6 am on the Saturday of Mule Days. Unloading of vehicles or trailers must conclude and be removed not later than 9:00 am on Saturday. Vendors will be allowed to drive up to their booths to unload only and must remove vehicles immediately upon unloading. Vehicles left unattended may be towed. Booths should be open following the parade that begins at 10:00 am.
All vehicles must be removed from the exhibit area by 9 am on Saturday. A special "Exhibitor” Parking Pass will be given to you on set-up day for Exhibitor Parking on the South and West sides of the city park.
Your booth must be ready and open for business immediately following the adult parade on the Saturday of Mule Days. (Approximately 11:00 am) Your booth should be open at 10 am. Booths are to remain open on Saturday until 6:00 pm or later depending on the crowd unless approved by the committee chairman. The assembly area for the parade is around the park and will begin at 8 am. It is recommended that you do not leave your booth unattended. Booth holders who close early may not be invited back.

The committee recommends all exhibitors carry their own insurance although it is not a requirement to exhibit. Normal homeowner coverage may be adequate in most cases, however, you should check with your personal agent to be sure of coverage. Proof of insurance is required to be a Food Vendor during Reardan Mule Days. Also, the Lincoln County Health Department (509-725-2501) requires all food vendors to have a food permit. The Reardan Mule Days Committee is not liable for any loss or damage to exhibitor booth(s) and/or merchandise by individuals or the weather. Do not leave your booths unattended. Contact the chairman if you have any questions.
