Be a part of EcoFair!

Over 2,500 fair-goers attend EcoFair annually, making it one of Jackson Hole’s premier event opportunities for organizational exposure and outreach.

As we navigate uncertain times and look forward to a time when we can host a community celebration, we encourage interested community members to apply to be a part of EcoFair 2020! No application fees will be assessed until a new event date has been selected and we are moving forward with event planning once again. Approved applicants will have the opportunity to be active in the decision-making regarding the 2020 event’s rebuild.

Participants may host a presentation, demo, exhibit, or other creative opportunity for the public. All participants must be present from 12-5pm on May 9.

Booth Space
  • All EcoFair participants must familiarize themselves with the EcoFair Policies & Procedures and Go Eco! guidelines. EcoFair participants are expected to not only promote sustainable and environmental practices both informationally and by example, but also to consider future actions and ongoing growth in sustainability.

 

  • We will consider any exhibit setup that makes sense for the content of your presence and message. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact Event Director Virginia Symons to discuss your setup.
  • Spaces under the large tents will each be allotted a 10’ wide x 6’ deep space. Organizations that apply by April 11 may have advance input as to their booth locations. Those that register after April 11 will be assigned a booth location.
Event Setup & Breakdown
  • Pre-event unloading will take place 9:30-11:30am on May 9, and post-event booth breakdown and loading will take place 5:00-6:00pm. Between 11:30am and 5:00pm, vendor vehicles must be relocated to the lower Snow King Ice Rink lot or neighborhood streets where parking is permitted. Vendors are encouraged to leave parking spots on the south side of the Snow King Ball Park lot for fairgoers.
  • All participants are expected to maintain their presense at EcoFair until the event ends at 5:00pm. Early take-down may adversely affect a vendor’s 2021 EcoFair booth application.
What You'll Need
  • All participants must supply their own tables, chairs and, if using electricity, their own electrical strips and 150’ extension cords. Please make advance arrangements for electricity with event director Virginia Symons.
  • One black tablecloth per booth plus mats to cover extension cords will be provided, thanks to event sponsor High Country Linen Service.
  • Food and beverage vendors must supply and set up/break down their own 10×10’ pop-up tents, which will be located along the south, inside perimeter of the Snow King Ball Field. Please contact event director Virginia Symons with any special space or setup requirements.
Food Vendors
  • Food and beverage vendors must supply and set up/break down their own 10×10’ pop-up tents, which will be located along the south, inside perimeter of the Snow King Ball Field. Please contact event director Virginia Symons with any special space or setup requirements.
  • All food vendors cooking onsite MUST supply their own fire extinguishers. Those cooking with an open flame need to make special arrangements with event director Virginia Symons. Electric burners, small sternos and crock pots are permitted under pop-up tents tagged with flame propagation requirements that meet IFC 2404.2 or NFPA 701 criteria. Questions about this requirement? Contact Fire Marshal Kathy Clay at 307.733.4732.
  • Food products, pre-made or made onsite at EcoFair, require temporary food permits from Teton County Environment Health (307.732.8490). Individual food vendors are responsible for procuring permits 14 days or more in advance of EcoFair. Food vendors without permits will not be eligible to participate in EcoFair. Teton County Environment Health will be inspecting booths at the event, and any vendor without proper permitting will be required to close his/her booth. Please note that EcoFair will allow food vendors to sign up after the deadline for procuring a temporary food permit – it is your responsibility as a food vendor to be aware of this deadline.
  • EcoFair is continuing a successful zero waste model in 2020, and will be supplying all food vendors with reusable plates, cutlery, and napkins. The EcoFair “Green Team” will be responsible for assisting fairgoers in appropriately placing reusable items when they are finished with them, and restocking food vendors. It is recommended that food and vendors be prepared with backup plates and cutlery, as exact business levels cannot be known. It is required that any disposable plates, napkins, and cutlery used by EcoFair food vendors MUST be eco-friendly (i.e. reusable, recycled content, or compostable).
  • The sale of disposable plastic water bottles at Eco-Fair is prohibited. The event is promoting “BYO Water Bottle” and “BYO Beer Mug” in its marketing. There will be no disposable cups at EcoFair. Slow Food in the Tetons will provide a stainless steel cup rental program for fairgoers who have not brought their own water bottle or mug.
