The cost for a 10x10 space is $50.00 for non Chamber members and $25 for Bronze members. If you are a 2019 GOLD or SILVER Harrisburg Chamber member, your booth is free. You are responsible for your own set up including materials, display and signage. If more space is needed you must note this on your application. Additional charges may apply. Only one sales consultant from a company is able to attend Harrisburg Days. For example: one Pampered Chef representative, one Thirty-One representative, one May Kay representative, etc. Please contact the Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce or check www.harrisburgsdchamber.com to verify if a specific consultant has already been accepted. You will be notified via email if your application has been accepted or not. If you are not accepted, your application and payment will be returned to you. The Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce and Harrisburg Days staff reserves the right to reject any application.
There will not be a specific vendor parking area, however, all vendors may park in the east parking lot of Liberty Elementary School. If possible, please keep the number of vehicles per vendor to a minimum.
Electricity - $25.00 Fee
If you require electricity, you need to indicate this on your application. Please indicate your electricity needs in detail, for example: 1 regular outlet, 3 regular outlets, etc. We only provide 110-volt, 20-amp outlets. Electricity is an additional $25 and will be limited (you must bring at least a 125-ft, heavy-duty electric cord; we DO NOT provide any extension cords). Please bring extra extension cords if needed; typically, it is faulty cords that cause problems. Please do not plan on hooking several items into one power strip and to one extension cord. Depending on the items, these may need to be broken out into several outlets. No off-site generators from non-food vendors will be allowed in the park; to receive electricity, our generator provided must be used.
Driving Vehicles in the Park
Vendors are allowed to drive their vehicles into the park to load and unload items only. Vendors cannot block any road area when loading or unloading due to other vehicles needing to get through. If excess rain occurs the week before, the day before or the day of the event, vehicle loading/unloading areas will be limited. All vehicles are allowed to park in the east lot of Liberty Elementary. If you need your trailer or vehicle kept within the park, near the booth, it must be pre-approved by the Harrisburg Days staff and noted on your application. Please remember when driving through the park to drive slowly and cautiously. Normally vehicles are not driven within the park so spectators are not watching for cars. You will be notified via email the week of Harrisburg Days of any change of plans for loading/unloading or parking.
The Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce, Harrisburg Days staff and the City of Harrisburg are not liable for refunds or any other liabilities whatsoever for your failure to fulfill the rules and regulations due to the unusable condition of the area in which the festival is to be held that is caused by, but not limited to, fire, rain, or other calamity, any act of God or nature, public enemy, strikes, statues, ordinances of legal authority, or any cause beyond the Harrisburg Days staff or City of Harrisburg control. The Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce, Harrisburg Days staff and the City of Harrisburg has the right to accept or reject any application upon their discretion.
