For the two JamBallah Showcases Nights I and II, you are welcome to claim any unsold seats, or to hang out in the entrance vom to watch the show. Feel free to ask the Info Booth folks about the shows day-of, to check on your chances of snagging a free seat.

Load-In, Security + Over-Night Storage

Narcissa Productions llc, associate producers, volunteers and personnel are not responsible for any theft, damage, or any other risk of vending.

The building will be open from 30m prior to the first class till close of show daily, and locked overnight.  You may wish to cover or otherwise secure your goods during non-vending hours during the shows.  We will have official JamBallah volunteers attending the doors and loosely monitoring the vendor area whenever the building is unlocked.

Loading Paths and Assistance

The upstairs loading zone is the building's turnaround on Morrison.  The downstairs loading zone is a pay-for-park lot on sw 15th and Alder (you can check these both out on Google Maps Street View.) Loading zones will be available for vendors to use during setup and teardown times. 

Narcissa Productions llc will provide volunteers to lift and carry items during setup and teardown times.

Vendors are requested to respect posted vending times (no breaking down early, please!  It disrupts the other vendor’s business!)  Feel free to stay open later than official vending hours on Fri and Sat for the shows if you like.

Vending Space Specs

Vendors are responsible for providing their own tables, equipment, racks, mirrors, display cases, table-covers, and general display, which should be visually appealing and professional in appearance.

Pop-up canopies and EZ frames: OK, if they fit in the space. (Except middle landing where the ceiling is too low.)

Electricity is available for lights and other uses, BRING EXTENSION CORDS

Vendors must provide their own changing areas.

There is no provided music in the lobby areas. Vendors may provide their own music, as long as surrounding vendors agree.

We will have a limited number of 6' tables available, and plenty of chairs.  Please inquire about availability prior to setup.

Please note: Vending fees are due in full by June 1, or your spot may be reassigned. Cancellation fees apply after contracts are signed.

Festival responsibility: Put up and maintain the vendor page on the site, and mention the 'free artisan vendor fair' it in newsletters, on FB, and in marketing materials. Feel free to send me new pics or updates for the vendor page at any point. I will try to do at least one mention on FB and in the newsletters of each vendor. If you're having a sale, releasing a new line, or have some interesting thing on social media, send it over and I'll try to help you get the word out.

Vendor responsibility: Please let your fans know you'll be joining us for JamBallah this year, for a free-entry artisan vendor fair featuring a wide variety of imported, local, and handmade wares to adorn, dress and delight. Please link to on your website, social media platforms, and in any newsletters. It is also a huge help to put out festival flyers at other vending occasions where appropriate, as well as stuffing flyers into outgoing wares packets to be shipped off to customers. Let me know if I can send you a stack of flyers! If you need marketing images, here's a folder you can download those from.
