VENDOR INFORMATION   

The 36th Annual Freedom Rally will be held July 2nd, 3rd, & 4th of 2020.  While most of our vendors return year after year, we do sometimes have openings available.

What does it cost a vendor to sell at the Rally?  There is a $400.00 non-refundable space rental fee payable at the time a signed contract is submitted by a vendor for review and signature.  In addition, there is a percentage fee based on the vendor’s gross sales made while on the Rally grounds (10% for merchandise vendors, 15% for food vendors and tattoo artists).  The percentage of gross sales payment must be made before leaving the rally grounds at the end of the rally.

We try to make every effort to provide reasonable space sufficient for the vendor to conduct business. This includes a reasonably sized housing unit (RV, trailer, or tent no longer than 40 feet) and one stationary vehicle. All other vendor vehicles will be parked at no charge in a vendor parking area.  Any space required over 40 X 30 feet is charged at $.25 (twenty-five cents)per square foot.  Electricity, if requirements are considered reasonable, is provided as part of the contract, as well as water and trash removal.

The number of employees allowed at the Rally as part of the contract is restricted depending on the type of business, and any additional employees must pay the same admission as our guests.  No one under the age of 18 is allowed at the Rally. NO EXCEPTIONS. ID will be required upon entry.

Food vendors must provide as part of their contract, a detailed list with prices of the food they intend to sell so that we can be assured that we are offering our guests a variety of foods. We reserve the right to disallow any food item.  Merchandise vendors must also provide a detailed list of the type of merchandise they sell. 

If you are interested in vending at the 36th Annual Freedom Rally in 2020, please send an email to vendors@abateiowafreedomrally.com.  Please understand that openings for new vendors are very limited.  If you want to be notified that we were not able to include you as a vendor for 2020, please complete the online vendor form by clicking the link below.  Otherwise, you will not be contacted unless you are sent a contract or notified by the Vendor Coordinator.   Please do not forward payment unless you have been sent a contract and are returning it for review and signature.
