Booth Options

General Info

We offer a variety of booth sizes and options at each event.

For examples of setups in each booth category and size, reference the links above. Booth sizes and prices vary across all Fairs, see the section below for a complete breakdown. Creating your booth is a unique opportunity to present your work to new audiences and create a pop-up boutique reflective of your brand, so please carefully consider your booth size when applying.

Full

Our recommended option and standard booth size for each Fair, Full Booths can range from 6’x6’, to 8’x8′, to 10’x10’ depending on the venue. We encourage the Full Booth option for those interested in having a dedicated booth, have larger products and displays, or a good amount of inventory to sell. Full Booth layout and display options are more open and versatile, offering the best selling experience. Please reference the grid below for more information on booth sizing per event.

Shared

For vendors with small products, limited inventory, and who can sell from a shared footprint, we recommend our Shared Booth option. You can request to share your booth with another artist if you’re both accepted, or we will pair you with another accepted participant with complementary work.

Please note that the Shared booths are split vertically with the short side facing the aisle. Depending on which event(s) you participate in, your booth orientation will be one of these sizes: 3′ wide x 6′ deep, 4′ wide x 8′ deep, or 5′ wide x 10′ deep. You can also upgrade to a corner booth if you want to increase your exposure at the Fair. Please reference the grid below for more information on booth sizing per event.

Communication and coordination with your partner is key for a successful Shared Booth.

Double

Double Booths are equal to two Full Booths side-by-side. This is an excellent way to showcase larger work and displays, increase your offerings, interact with many customers at once, or host an Experiential activation (for example, a demonstration or workshop). It’s also a great option for Collectives, Galleries, or Organizations to offer an installation or showcase at the Fair.

Please note that Double Booth dimensions are listed in width x depth along the aisle. Depending on which event(s) you participate in, your booth will be one of these sizes: 12’ wide x 6’ deep, 16′ wide x 8′ deep, or 20’ wide x10’ deep. Please reference the grid below for more information on booth sizing per event.

Mobile

Mobile Booths are movable and compact booth displays that roam throughout the event (for example, a cart on wheels). Mobile vendors are required to move throughout the venue and cannot be stationary for long periods of time.

Trucks + Trailers

At most events, we have some dedicated space for food trucks, hitch trailers, and other large vehicles. Reach out to us if you’re interested in bringing your rig to the Fair so we can chat through availability, pricing, and options.

Booth Sizes + Prices

Our events come in all different shapes and sizes, so please check out the guide below to get a feel for which Fairs are the best fit for your business. The only upfront cost is a $50 nonrefundable application fee per event due upon submitting your application. This amount is applied to your booth fee if accepted.

FAQs

Check out our 2021 Calendar here!

Renegade events range in size from 50 to 400 artists with each event having its own unique locale, personality, aesthetic, and audience. Your work will connect differently at each event, so please consider the below questions below when applying.

  • Is the Fair indoors or outdoors? Think about lighting, weather (and if it can affect your product), access to power, wifi, tent, and everything else that comes with an open-air event.
  • How many vendors are at this Fair, and what is the average attendance? A smaller event will bring an attentive audience to your booth, while a flagship event will bring lots of fast moving eyes. Both have their strengths – and ultimately your booth and work will speak for itself, so be prepared to put your best foot forward!

What’s the difference between a Fair and a Pop-Up?

A Fair is a two-day, recurring, and curated event produced entirely in-house by our team. A Pop-Up is an intimate and more selective event, usually in partnership or collaboration with a like-minded venue, event, or brand. Pop-Ups can range from one-day to multiple.

See the Booth Sizes and Pricing above to see more information about each event.

Our Fairs are juried, curated, and produced by our in-house team. Artists are encouraged to read through our Apply Page before filling out our Participation Application. Applications and notifications are on a seasonal schedule, allowing for ample time to prepare for the event. Please see the timetable below for Fair-specific run dates, and feel free to contact us with any questions during the application process!

We review each application carefully and thoughtfully, and base our vision for the Fairs, Shop, and Collective on the jury criteria below:

QUALITY & VALUE

You use high quality materials and techniques to make your work durable, sustainable, and market ready. Additionally, your items are priced to provide a balance of quality and accessibility for our shoppers.

AESTHETIC

Your work, branding, and packaging are timeless, unique (unquestionably your own), and align with Renegade’s aesthetic.

ETHICAL

Your work is designed and/or handmade by you, and materials are sourced in an ethical and sustainable way. If you outsource your work in any way, please describe your supply chain, including your relationship with the makers in your application.

Artists, Designers, as well as Foodies selling pre-packaged items can use our Participation Application to apply to all of our Fairs.

If you have a Food Truck, Trailer, Installation, or other custom footprint, please get in touch to inquire about getting involved.

Artists + Designers

The centerpiece of our Fairs! Present your work to our bustling crowds, wholesale buyers, international online following, engaged media outlets, and brand-aligned sponsors and partners.

Food + Drink (pre-packaged)

Small batch, quality ingredients, and beautiful presentation: pre-packaged food vendors appeal to shoppers looking for great snacks and/or delicious gifts. All vendors selling edible goods, including drinks, should choose the ‘Pre-Packaged’ option in the participation application.

If you’re hoping to participate as an onsite food vendor, want to bring a truck or trailer to the fair, have a custom footprint, or are a nonprofit organization please read on –>

Food Trucks + Vendors

Local food trucks & vendors are an essential part of the Renegade Fair experience. We strive to provide delicious food at all of our events, please reach out if you would like to bring your food truck to Renegade and feed crowds of hungry shoppers!

Experientials + Installations + Trailers

Want to feature your furniture at a Fair, and reach new clients and customers? Or install an impactful, beautiful piece for an event? We will be happy to send you specs and proposal information!

If you are wanting to offer your experiential services at a Fair, please apply through our Participation Application, and choose the ‘Experiential’ category under Artists/Designers. Examples of experiential services include aura photography, workshops, tarot card reading, portrait drawing, and anything in between!

Nonprofit Organizations

We love to work with nonprofit organizations that align with our mission, vision, and values! Get in touch if your business is a registered nonprofit interested in participating at Renegade.

Renegade offers creatives an opportunity to connect with engaged fans and enthusiastic shoppers. There are many additional benefits that come along with joining our events! Here’s what we have to offer:

  • Your Booth space. Create your own pop-up shop to showcase and sell your work to an engaged audience!
  • Inclusion on our Fair Roster. Our website’s 150K+ unique pageviews per month will put your linked site in front of a variety of buyers and shoppers both before and after the Fair.
  • Tile on our Collective. Our Collective is an ever-evolving roster of our community’s contemporary craft artists and designers that positions your work for a (world)wide audience.
  • Wholesale opportunities. Buyers head to Renegade to discover unique makers and products like yours, and many reach out during and after the show to set-up accounts with their store.
  • Networking and collaborations. Tap into our vibrant creative community by connecting with neighboring makers for potential collaborations, resources, and other exciting opportunities.
  • Potential social features. With a thriving following of nearly 315k+ fans and followers online (200k+ on Instagram alone), we handpick and feature exceptional makers and participants on our social media and in our newsletters (50k+ subscribers).
  • Please note we collect a nonrefundable $50 application fee per fair to process and jury every application.
  • Application fee(s) must be paid for at the time of application. We do not collect booth fee(s) upfront on the application.
  • Once your application fee(s) are submitted, your payment information will be stored on Authorize.net, our secure payments system. Payment info is periodically deleted from our payments system, in accordance with PCI compliance.
  • If you are accepted to the Fair(s) that you applied to, we will send an email notification to your provided email address and we will charge the card on file for the booth fee(s) you selected 3 weeks before the event. You will be charged individually for each Fair.
  • Should you not be accepted to the Fair, your card will not be charged for the booth fee(s).
  • Renegade recommends that your business complies with your local tax regulations by registering your business, collecting sales tax, and reporting and remitting sales tax. While we cannot offer specific guidance about tax compliance, if you have questions, we recommend you consult with an accountant or www.irs.gov for more details.
  • Please note that our Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle Fairs require you to submit sales tax payment. You can learn more here about the requirements ahead of time.
  • We welcome international creatives to join us from abroad, but we recommend you contact the customs department and learn what you need to do directly from them. Renegade Craft does not provide any sales tax or customs advice.

It is legal to sell CBD products as long as the oil is sourced from industrial hemp and the THC content is below 0.3%. Additionally, you must also comply with any regulations that are specific to the city and state where the event is being held.

Due to federal regulations, consumable CBD products with over .3% THC cannot be sold (or marketed, including verbal marketing) at any of our events.

If you are sharing your booth space with another maker, please be in contact with them! We send out a booth share email shortly after notifications go out so you can begin planning your setup as soon as possible. Make sure you connect and discuss all of your plans for the Fair and your booth setup together.

If you requested a specific booth mate and they are not selected to participate in the Fair, we will pair you with another vendor who compliments your products and aesthetic.

If you are participating in an outdoor Fair, especially make sure you connect with your booth mate to get on the same page about tent and table rentals.

Please note that most shared booths have to be set up side-by-side with the shortest side of your display facing the aisle, so please plan your booth layout accordingly along with your booth mate.

If you have attempted to contact your assigned booth mate and have not heard back, please reach out to us via our Contact Form.

Once accepted to the Fair, we offer furniture rentals and other amenities that vary per event. Rentals often include tables in a variety of sizes, clothing racks, chairs, tents for outdoor events, wifi, and early load-in, as available. Rental orders can be placed through the Participation Kit upon acceptance.

In the event you must cancel your participation:

  • If you cancel your participation up to 22 days before the event, we will not charge the booth fee for that event.
  • If you cancel your participation 21 days or less prior to the event, then we can not offer a refund.
  • The $50 application fee for each event canceled is nonrefundable.
  • Once you cancel, you forfeit your spot in the Fair and you are not permitted to sell or trade your space.

This policy applies to both standard and rolling applications.

Notes:
If an event is canceled due to Covid within 21 days of the event, participants may receive a refund or carry credit over towards a future event.

If participants cancel up to 2 days in advance of the event due to concerns over Covid we are able to refund the booth fees you paid in 2021, or carry your credit forward to another event.

If you have a credit from a cancelled 2020 event and would like to use it, please use your unique and case-sensitive code when applying. We have sent regular communications to cancelled 2020 Fair participants that includes credits and codes, please check your spam folder or email us if you are missing information or have any questions.

We produce all of our events with the health + safety of our community as our first priority, following local and national recommendations as our guide, including the guidance and considerations for organizing events published by the CDC.

Because guidelines are rapidly changing and differ per city, we will continue to update our health + safety protocols as needed leading up to each event. These measures may be updated at any time, without advance notice. Some photos shown throughout this website may not represent current guidelines at upcoming events.
