2021 A-OK Alpaca
Blast-Off Vendor & Application Agreement

To: Alpacas of Oklahoma
(A-OK)/Blastoff Committee:
I hereby apply as a vendor for the A-OK Alpaca Blastoff event (hereinafter, referred to as Blastoff).

Event Date: Saturday-Sunday, November 13-14, 2021.

RULES OF THE MARKET

1. A-OK Blastoff is a livestock show; therefore, sustainable, Made-In-Oklahoma (MIO), farm products and/or handmade crafts and goods are our preferred vendors. Since those items are typically exclusive to your own farm or personal production, exclusivity will not be granted. Direct marketing vendors will not be considered. Booths are $150.00. Number of spaces is limited.

2. All vendors are responsible for liability insurance and compliance with any and all requirements of the venue and of State of Oklahoma, including but not limited to, OTC sales tax requirements and health department requirements for food vendors (appropriate licenses/permits must be displayed or readily available, if applicable). Please be aware that the OTC recently changed their sales tax filing requirements for Special Events such as this event.  You will be required to provide your Oklahoma Sales Tax Permit number (if you have one) and your Federal Tax ID number (Employer Identification Number or Social Security Number).  You may provide these numbers in your written or online vendor application, or you may contact our Vendor Coordinator, Terri Bates, with your numbers at 405-412-4845.  All information provided will be kept in strict confidence and only provided to the OTC as required.  All vendors, whether you have a Sales Tax Permit or not, are now required by OTC to file their own event sales and pay the taxes collected.  OTC will send correspondence with instructions for the filing process to each vendor just a few days before the event date.

3. All products will be displayed in a clean and safe manner. Please, NO dangerous or toxic items. Decisions by the Event Coordinator or Vendor Coordinator are final.

4. All vendors shall exhibit professional manners, always showing respect for the event hosts, other vendors, customers and Property occupants and neighbors.

5. One table and 2 chairs will be provided per booth. Canopies will not be provided, but vendors may use their own within their set area. Please respect space boundaries and line of sight concerns for your neighboring vendors.

6. Spaces and booth location shall be negotiated and assigned by A-OK.

7. Do not unlock/open any stall gates/doors or enter any blocked areas without permission from Event Coordinator or venue supervisors.

8. Applicable fees shall be paid no later than October 30, 2021. Additional fees may apply for special needs during event, i.e., electricity, shared space. Booth space can only be shared if approved in advance by Event Coordinator (additional fees will be negotiated).

9. Any Vendor who does not comply with the terms of the Vendor Agreement/Rules, shows gross negligence, or whose conduct is deemed disorderly shall be asked to vacate the Property without a refund of the rental fee paid.

10. All Vendors must remain set up and stay until 12:00 pm Sunday, November 14th or until showring judging has ended, whichever comes first, to assure an orderly exit from the property. Any vendor who does not adhere to this rule may not be invited back to future events.

11. Vendors are responsible for leaving a clean area at closing. Trash receptacles will be available.

12. This vendor agreement is made by and between Alpacas of Oklahoma/A-OK Blastoff Committee (authorized persons are the Event Coordinator or Vendor Coordinator) and the Online Application Vendor’s Name or Company Name,
