We receive many applications and cannot accept everyone. The application deadline is April 17, 2009. We will send out notifications by April 22, 2009. We will not consider your application if it is not complete or if we receive it after the deadline. A complete application includes all the information we request below, including photos, plus payment.
By completing the application below you agree to all terms and conditions.
We will not consider your application unless we receive: Completed Form, Photos and Payment (via PayPal; you do not have to have a PayPal account to pay through PayPal). If you are not accepted your money will be promptly returned to you after April 22, 2009.
The fee to participate is $225 (this amount does not include parking - parking fees are the responsibility of each vendor). This amount is due with your application. Once accepted, you will be given the option to rent a tent ($100), tables ($10 each) and chairs ($5 each) from us to use during the event. This is optional, you can bring your own.
If you are not accepted $215 will be promptly returned to you after April 22, 2009. There is a $10 processing fee.
For those accepted, we offer a short grace period after acceptance emails are sent out. This is the only opportunity to receive a refund. If accepted, but you are unable to participate we will offer a refund of $215 if you notify us by May 6, 2009. After May 6, 2009 we cannot offer a refund - no exceptions.
ICE is a rain or shine event. If the event is canceled due to weather, other Acts of God or conditions beyond the control of the Indie Craft Experience, your fee will not be refunded to you.
You may share a space with another vendor, BUT you must apply together. This is a juried event so we must approve both of you. Put info about Vendor #2 in the “Briefly Describe Your Craft” section and include a photo from each of you.
Each vendor will have a space that is 10 ft. x 10 ft. Vendors are responsible for their entire display: tents, tables, chairs, table clothes, racks, etc. This includes hauling and setting up your display. We have an extremely small staff, and it is your responsibility to haul your belongings and to set up & break down your display.
Day of the Event:
This two day event takes place Saturday, May 30 - Sunday, May 31, 2009 at Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Set up will be done on a staggered schedule which we will send out after vendors are accepted. Centennial Olympic Park has a small load-in area so it is very important that everyone respect the time slot they are given. This schedule will be tight and everyone needs their allotted amount of time.
Please, do not break down early. You are expected to remain set up until 7 p.m. each day. If you break down early we may not be able to accept you for future shows. If you have to break down early due to an emergency or weather issues please let us know (even if it is via email after the fact).
Once you are accepted, we will ask you to send swag for the 500 swag bags that we will distribute to attendees. This is a great way to get your information in the hands of a lot of people! Swag can be anything that promotes your business: stickers, business cards, postcards, fun stuff, etc. This is not mandatory, but strongly encouraged.
The Indie Craft Experience believes that providing a safe and secure environment for the event is very important. Security will be hired for the event (including move-in, overnight, move-out and the hours of the event). Additionally, Centennial Olympic Park has its own police force which patrols the park 24-hours a day. We do not recommend leaving merchandise (your crafts) in your booth over night, however, tents, tables, chairs and displays should be ok left overnight. We do not take responsibility for anything stolen or damaged during any portion of the event (including overnight) so please carefully consider each item you plan on leaving.
The Indie Craft Experience is not responsible for personal injury or any items damaged or stolen during the duration of the event (including move-in, overnight, move-out and the hours of the event). It is the responsibility of each vendor to transport their belongings, to not leave valuables unattended and to properly secure items left in the park overnight. The Indie Craft Experience is not responsible for your belongings.
