Port of Fear: Fear Returns

Port of Fear’s 2nd year is almost here! We are looking for terrifying treats & spooky merch to bring to our patrons. 

 

The event will be held on September 30 - October 1st 2023 at the historic Kemper Center grounds. We will be premiering our spooky market starting that Saturday at 1:00pm-8:30pm  and run it through Sunday 11am-5pm. 

 

If you are interested in setting up your booth Saturday, Sunday, or both, the following are required:

 

Food Vendors:

  • Insurance: We require all food vendors to carry a minimum amount of liability insurance.

  • Current Food License: Food vendors are required to have a current food license in order to sell for the 2023 year. 

  • Safety: We ask that all food booths using any open flame or flammable items carry a fire extinguisher. We will be on historic grounds and do not want any damage caused to the facilities, our patrons, or you!

  • Vendor Fee: We ask that all vendor fees are paid at the time of booking. The vendor fee is $50 per day, and helps to cover rental cost for the venue. Please note, once booked, vendor fees are non-refundable. 

  • Branding: Please provide a PDF or .AI vector file with your existing company logo so we may promote you on social media leading up to the event. We want your business to succeed as much as our event! 

 

Merchandise Vendors: 

  • Insurance: We require all merchandise vendors to carry a minimum amount of liability insurance.

  • Seller's Permit: We ask that all vendors be up to date with their sellers permit.

  • Vendor Fee: We ask that all vendor fees are paid at the time of booking. The vendor fee is $50 per day, and helps to cover rental cost for the venue. Please note, once booked, vendor fees are non-refundable. 

  • PDF or .AI vector file with your existing company logo so we may promote you on social media. We want your business to succeed as much as our event! 

  • All merchandise must be in theme with our event. We ask that everything represents the spooky, macabre, sci-fi, or fantasy. If you have questions, just reach out.

 

Our vendor area will be on the front courtyard grounds of the Kemper Center, as well as partially surrounding the soccer field. Once you arrive, we will ask you to file into an open spot so we do not have any gaps for our Spooky Market. We will ensure that all vendors have a spot for the event.

 

We ask you to provide your own tent, table, chairs, generators, etc. for your booth area. Your business is responsible for setting up and taking down your section. That being said, if you are unable to provide a table, chairs, or need assistance with set up or take down, please let us know. We have a limited group of volunteers that are happy to assist. 

 

If you are interested in becoming a vendor, please fill out the form and we will get back to you.
