The 2018 vendor application is now available. Applications are due February 6th, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. CST
Vendors will be reviewed once all applications have been received. Selected vendors will be notified no later than February 20th. Vendors who are selected will receive a booth fee invoice with their notifications. Booth fees must be submitted within 7 days of receiving the invoice, or the booth space will be relinquished to another vendor.
Food vendors must be registered with the City of Aurora and Kane County. Food vendors are required to have the necessary permits, paperwork, and insurance to participate in a downtown Aurora event. To become certified, please contact Charlie Koch with the City of Aurora at firstname.lastname@example.org. Certification is not required to apply for a booth; however, selection and participation as a vendor is conditional upon the vendor’s completion of all necessary steps to obtain certification by the county and the City of Aurora. Selected vendors will be required to complete the necessary steps and submit proof of certification at least 30 days prior to the festival. Vendors without proper permits and paperwork will not be able to participate, and their booth fees will not be refunded. It is the vendor’s responsibility to ensure that all steps are completed and that the documentation is submitted to info@CityOfLumos.org by May 10th, 2018.
The vendor fee for both days is $150 for art/craft/service vendors and $180 for food vendors. If smaller, local vendors would prefer a smaller venue and fee, they are welcome to apply for the Local Magic Market at the Aurora Regional Fire Museum.
