Santa Fe Trail Festival (SFTF) vendor application deadline approaches

TRINIDAD — The TLAC Chamber of Commerce is accepting applications for the SFTF vendor booths. We already have 23 committed vendors (food and non-food vendors) but we still have plenty of space to fill. This year, we are making an attempt to take things back to the old west days when pioneers traveled the Santa Fe Trail. We hope to see many folks show up in old west costume and get into the theme.

We have some awesome events and bands scheduled as well as carriage rides, horse-shoes, beer garden, chili contest, and lots of other fun things to do for adults and kids.

Interested vendors can email the chamber and I will send you the vendor forms. The fees are as follows: $75 for non-food vendors, $125 for food vendors, $50 for non-profits (non food), and $100 for non-profit (food).

Food vendors must submit a Colorado food license and proof of insurance. Sales tax information from all vendors is also required. The festival starts on Friday June 10 and goes from 5 pm to midnight. Saturday, June 11 it will run from 10 am to midnight. Email: TLAC Chamber of Commerce or call 719.846.9285
