Vendor Information for Oz-Stravaganza! 2018

Dear Crafter/vendor/food vendor/non profit,

Plans are underway in Chittenango, NY for our 41th annual Oz-Stravaganza!. For 2018, the festival will run from Friday, June 1st thru Sunday, 3rd. If you have attended in past years, thank you for your support. If this will be your first year, welcome, and we look forward to your presence.  We wish you all a fun and profitable weekend.

If you wish to customize your merchandise, this year’s theme is Broadway Comes to Oz. In addition, it is the 100th Anniversary of L. Frank Baum’s book “The Tin Woodman of Oz.”

Below is a review of vendor fees, additional pertinent information, and this year’s Oz-Stravaganza application. If you have any questions, contact us using the information provided.

ATTENTION NEW VENDORS: Over the last several years, we have seen a rash of vendors leaving early and not participating on Sunday. In 2017, eight vendor spots were found vacant on Sunday morning. This practice is unfair to our guests and unacceptable. To curb this behaviour, new vendors will now be required to pay a participation deposit. This deposit will be returned if you stay until the end of the festival. The deposit will be equal to 50% of your participation fee (i.e. if you pay a $200 vendor participation fee, you will be required to submit a separate $100 deposit).  Returning vendors will not be required to pay the participation deposit.


Below is an application to fill out and return along with the fees:

Payment Options:

NOTE: For new vendors, a separate participation deposit is required.  It is suggested that this deposit be a check so that it can be returned to you at the festival.

Fees for applications not accepted will promptly be returned to you. Other important information is included in your application. Please make a copy of your application before returning it to keep as a reference. 
    2017 applicants your spaces will be held until February 14, 2018. After that date, the remaining available lots will be available to all applicants. No applications will be accepted after May 15, 2018.

I look forward to seeing you all again! 

Ozzily yours,
