Do you operate a business out of Sandoval County? Are you a crafter or artisan based in Sandoval County? If so, then the Sandoval County Holiday Craft Fair could be the perfect event for you. Any business, crafter or artisan who works out of Sandoval County may purchase a booth for a small fee of just $20 (fees are a fundraiser for the Celebration Task Force which pays for employee appreciation events). If you or someone you know is interested, they should fill out the entry form below and bring their payment check to the Finance Department to reserve space anytime between now and Nov. 30, 2018. Invoices will be emailed to registered vendors for payment.
The event will be held on the first floor of the County Administration Building. Each booth will include a 6ft table and two chairs, max of two booths per person. This event will not only be a fundraiser for the Celebration Task Force, it will also allow the County to showcase local businesses/crafters/artisans, and give employees a chance to get some of their holiday shopping done.

Parking is free and available on site. However, the site does not have a loading dock. Therefore, please be prepared to walk your merchandise, and any set up items you may need, into the building. It is recommended that vendors be prepared with a hand truck, cart or dolly to make set-up and teardown more efficient. Table assignments will be made on a first come, first served basis and we will try not to place vendors with similar items on tables next to one another.
Vendor Licenses & Permits
Those businesses/crafters/artisans who would like to sell food for on-site consumption, should be sure to have the proper permits from the State of New Mexico.
