It is once again time for the Old Oak Festival! This year’s festival will be held April 21-23, 2017, on the campus of Tusculum College. We are hoping for a beautiful spring weekend for our festival this year! We have planned our usual events: all weekend live musical entertainment, food, artisans, crafters, and more. Amusements and entertainments for children will be held on Saturday and Sunday. A chapel service will be held at 11 a.m. on Sunday.
You will find further event information and an application to reserve booth space in the documents linked below. Please make note of the deadline and booth category fee charges. The deadline to reserve booth space is March 31, 2017. We require a $25 deposit in the form of a check to reserve booth space. Deposit checks will be returned at the end of the festival on Sunday beginning at 3pm for those that stay for all scheduled vending hours. Please fill out the accompanying form and send it in along with a check made payable to Tusculum College to the address below. Regarding this $25 deposit in check form, if the customary 10% of sales(outside booth) or 15% of sales (inside booth) owed at the end of the festival equals less than $25, the deposit check will be returned and the vendor will be responsible for paying the required percentage. If the percent totals $25 or more then the vendor has the option of allowing Tusculum to keep the deposit as partial payment and the vendor will be required to provide the remainder of the percent not covered by the $25. All monies owed to Tusculum College must be paid by 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 23. No booth spaces will be reserved without payment. Inside booths will be assigned on a first come/first serve basis. All vendors are subject to approval by the Old Oak Festival Committee. All items displayed must be handmade (author exception).
We do extensive advertising and promotion for our festival. Please be committed to remaining for all scheduled vending hours and days (Friday-12:00 to 6:00, Saturday 9:00 to 6:00, Sunday 10:00 to 4:00). We cannot guarantee nice weather so please come prepared and ready to see it through. You are welcome to set up on Friday morning at 8 a.m.
We look forward to seeing you and hope you plan to join us this year!
