Vendor Rules and Regulations

We are very excited about the upcoming Belton Fall Festival and welcome you to help us make it a successful event not only for Downtown Belton Main Street but also for the Vendors and Sponsors who make this event possible. We strive to make this Festival safe and fun that can be enjoyed by family members of all ages. This Festival will happen rain or shine. We have created these rules to help make this a fun and safe event not only for the festivalgoers, but also for our Vendors and the Belton Main Street Merchants. We also try to keep each of you as unique as possible; therefore we try not to duplicate your food or product business.

We reserve the right to add or change to the 2019 Vendor Rules and Regulations as the year progresses. You will receive a final version in your Vendor packet prior to the 2019 Fall Festival. Please note our contact information has changed and is at the top of this page. The Belton Fall Festival is responsible for providing the space and electricity when agreed upon. Each space is 11’ x 11’. The Vendor is responsible for providing all tables, chairs, tents, banners and/or signs, and any other items that are needed to set up and maintain your booth during the two day duration of the event.

Setup – we will provide you with setup information that will be sent two to three weeks prior to the event. This will include your time to arrive and any additional setup information. ALL CARS MUST BE REMOVED FROM MAIN STREET BY 3:30 p.m. ON FRIDAY. The Festival begins at 4:00 p.m. promptly.
