RULES & REGULATIONS

I understand that the merchandise offered for sale in each booth must be hand-made or hand-finished by the applicant or under the direction and control of the applicant. If the merchandise is not hand-made in this manner, it must have been improved, enhanced or reworked by the applicant or under the direction and control of the applicant in such a way as to add a homemade touch. Merchandise imported from outside the United States must be handmade, and if not hand-made by the applicant must contain the "Foreign Made" tag, and be improved, enhanced, or reworked as with any other merchandise.

I agree to sell only that merchandise which is shown in the photographs that are part of this application. I understand that submitting an application does not guarantee me space in Midway Swiss Days.

All merchandise sold must have been represented in the photographs submitted to the jury. All products must be approved by the jury selected by the Swiss Days committee. Midway Swiss Days reserves the right to disallow any item that is not in keeping with the standards of Midway Swiss Days. If during the year, you add or change any products, you will need to submit new photos by July 1st to be approved by the committee.

A booth space is an uncovered 10' deep x 15' wide space on the grass. Electricity is not available. Vendors are required to provide their own booth structure, tarps, tables, chairs, etc. The committee strongly encourages vendors to add to the "Swiss" theme by decorating booths in a Bavarian or Swiss motif. Displays must be confined to the booth space, and not encroach on the walkways or the spaces to the side or rear of the booth. Booth spaces are assigned randomly.

Assignments must be adhered to and are not transferable. All sales must take place from your assigned booth and not from vehicles, trailers or campers. No roving sales are permitted. Each vendor will be assigned a set-up time that must be honored. Vendors are required to be in their booths from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm Friday and Saturday. Vendors who sellout their products must remain in their booths for the duration of Midway Swiss Days.

Vendors are to comply with the Utah State Tax regulations. The Tax Commission will provide tax packets for each vendor at check-in.

Midway Swiss Days is not dependent on weather. Fees will not be refunded in the event of rain or winds. Each vendor is responsible for any damages to or from your booth and/or product.

The use of the words "Swiss Days" or "Midway Swiss Days" require written permission. These are registered trade names. Midway City ordinance prohibits pets from being on the square. The sale of food items is strictly prohibited.

Frequently Asked Questions


How Will My Application Be Judged?

A panel of judges will review and score each entry using a 0-5 scoring system. Scores are tallied and a cutoff score is determined in each category. Vendors will be judged within their selected categories on the following:

  • Photographs of products will be judged on quality, customer appeal, and uniqueness.
  • Photographs of booths/displays will be judged on design, layout, and organization; and an extra point will be added for use of a Swiss theme.

Who Is Eligible To Apply?

All vendors in the included categories may apply. Products must be hand-made or hand-finished by the applicant or under the direction and control of the applicant. If the merchandise is not hand-made in this manner, it must have been improved, enhanced, or reworked by the applicant or under the direction or control of the applicant in such a way as to add a home-made touch.
