NEW THIS YEAR – VIP Club Program
Avondale has implemented a new VIP Program for festival attendees. This is a program that will help build higher attendance for the events and will build traffic to your truck or booth. We need your help to make it successful. IT IS REQUIRED this year for each food vendor, participating in Avondale events, to provide a discounted offer for VIP Club Members. Each member will receive an email notification with a personal coupon code, one coupon per person. They will show this to you to redeem the discount. We will print signs with your special offer that must be displayed at your booth. The City of Avondale will send emails prior to the event advertising you and your VIP Club special offer. All offers are limited to one event and one per person unless otherwise noted. Special offer examples: 10% off one entree, free order of french fries with the purchase of a burger, etc
Food Vendor Space:
Food Vendor space must be of the highest quality. Goosebump Marketing & Events may reject any food vendor which, in its opinion, does not meet the required standards. All signs should be professionally made. Signs that appear unprofessional will be removed. Space around the booth should be kept clean at all times during the event, all trash must be removed from the area following the event.
Electrical Power is now included in your fee for all night-time events (Billy Moore, WinterFest, CulturePOP and Fiesta). It is not available at Tres Rios or Avondale Kid Fest. All other events it is available for an additional fee of $75. If you purchase power and have special adaptors please bring the adapters. We do not supply any. You may want to confirm with Mayra Martinez that your adaptor will work.
