Sandia Band Annual Craft Fair – Saturday, November 17, 2018 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

 

The SANDIA BAND CRAFT FAIR is a tradition that is over 16 years old! This festive Fall Fair provides vendors of Hand-made crafts with a well-attended exhibit space to sell their wares. It continues to draw repeat customers year after year. Our Registration usually gets posted around the end of August or the beginning of September each year.

As one vendor put it so well:
“The Sandia Craft Fair is my favorite Craft Fair that I do each year.  Your band students are so helpful to the vendors and the organization is superb.
I will definitely be back next year.”

Vendor Information:

Thank you for you interest in being a vendor and supporting the Sandia High School Band. We are looking forward to an amazing Craft Fair in 2018! All we need is YOU!


 

Thank you if you participated in our Craft Fair in 2017. We had to change booth spaces around to comply with the Fire Marshall. The Fire Marshall was pleased with our new booth set up in 2017 and (fingers crossed) we won’t have to make many, if any, changes to our layout this year.

This year’s application will have a designated place for you to list your booth number from last year if you remember it and would like the same space.  If you don’t remember your booth space, in the comment section please just indicate SAME BOOTH AS LAST YEAR and we will give it to you (assuming you are not wait listed. So, please register early). 

ATTENTION ALL FOOD VENDORS!!! This year we will be collecting your food license, your City of Albuquerque food permit application and the $25 fee and submitting your request for a permit to sell food at our Craft Fair to the City of Albuquerque on your behalf.  All the new procedures for this will be outlined in detail in the info you receive on September 1, 2018.  Please read and follow the instructions carefully.
