Vendor Info

Vendor space is limited and is being offered on a first-come-first-serve basis, There is no fee for vendor space. Vendors must register by August 15 to be guaranteed space. Vendors will need to provide their own tents, tables, etc, and food vendors will need to obtain permits from the City. Any food vendor who will be cooking on-site will also need to have a working fire extinguisher at their site. We recommend you bring small generators for fans or lights you may want or need to use as power and water are not available at the vendor sites. To register, call print the 2017 Garage Birthday Bash Vendor Registration Form, complete and bring to The Garage, 1110 N Main St, Fort Stockton (copies of the form are also available at The Garage for pick up). Vendor types are limited: no duplication of products or services, so the first to register for a particular type of item will be the only vendor selling that item. This is STRICTLY enforced.

** ATTENTION PROSPECTIVE BASH VENDORS: please read the event details carefully – we are only allowing ONE of each type of item so we don’t have 5 people all selling the same item. This means if someone registered before you, we will not be allowing you to sell the same product. Yes, we already have a number of vendors who have registered, so that means you really need to check with us to see if the product you want to sell is still allowed. The easiest way to find out is to call us at 432-701-0588 and ask. You can sell something similar, but not the same. For example, if someone has already registered to sell brisket burritos, that doesn’t exclude you from selling chorizo & potato burritos. Items that have already been registered and CAN NOT be sold at your booth:
ANY alcoholic beverage
Sodas/water/energy drinks
sno cones
hot dogs
Roasted Corn
Steak Fries
Frito Chili Pie
Brisket Burrito
Brisket Plates

Sponsor Info

All donations are tax-deductible. Some of these musicians are traveling many miles to come to Fort Stockton. A $150 sponsorship will help pay for the expenses of one artist, but any amount you can contribute will be greatly appreciated!
