I'm organizing a vendor fair for this summer as a Summer Open House. I've contacted many consultants in the are from various companies and have had a lot of positive feedback. Nobody else wanted to organize it all themselves, but I am a teacher and summer is my time off to do other things like this! So I have my vendors, a location (cheap!!), and am working on a date(s) and time. My questions are: -Has anyone else ever organized one of these? Do you have a contract or list of requirements, etc. that you made up for all vendors? -Do you recommend an all day Saturday event, or Friday night/Saturday morning type of thing? -Is it okay to charge a bit extra from each vendor to cover the costs of bottled water for attendees? (The cost of the space is barely over $100 total and I can fit at least 20 vendors). I've already read so many comments on here about advertising, what to do/not to do with door prizes & cash&carry, etc. These are just the last few questions to wrap up as I start getting info out to people. Thanks!!
