22nd Annual Ringle Harvest Day - Saturday, October 13, 2018


FOOD VENDORS CALL:  (715) 297-0197  

22nd Annual Ringle Harvest Day - 2018 Vendor Contract

Hello, my name is Jacky Luetschwager and I do this as a volunteer - this is our 4-H group's main fundraiser.  Our club does this to support our community and create a fun event.  Vendor fees are put back into this event for advertising, promotion, petting zoo and such.  The 4-H's food stand from this event is basically our club's operating budget for the year.  We offer our members an educational scholarship for use during the calendar year based on our sales.


Vendors please complete and submit the appropriate form via the mail or email.  It is easy to do, just copy and paste and print or copy and paste and send to me in an email.  You may send me the vendor fees via the mail or you may choose to pay via an invoice I can send you from my paypal account.  We NEED your help by sharing our information, posts and photos on your social media sites.


Ringle Harvest Day is ALWAYS the 2nd Saturday in October.  This year it is October 13, 2018.  The event is from 9-3 - however, there are shoppers before the sun comes up.   Your booth number will be forwarded to you on or before October 10.  All the roads in Ringle have new names, so I have to redo the map - again.  I do hold checks or will not bill via paypal for the new vendors until I see if I have room - if I don't, you will receive your payment back.


This is an outside event, held rain, snow or shine.  ALL  fees are prepaid and non refundable.  Vendors set up in all the open and green spaces in addition to the sides of roads in our small rural town.  With this in mind, you may set up on Friday, October 12 from noon - dark.  Many vendors do this, some just come and set up tables, others sleep here - it's up to you.  We do not have security for this event, so if you choose to do so, we, Town of Ringle or Popplewood 4-H are NOT  responsible for damaged or missing items.   You also may set up on Saturday, October 13, 2018 - sale date - as soon as it is light out.  PLEASE be here, setting up your booth NO LATER than 8 am.  We close down the streets so there will be NO thru traffic after 8 am.


If you had a booth here the previous year, you have first option for that same booth.  I try my best to accommodate requests, but it isn't always possible.  Your booth will either be 20'x20' or 10'x40' and the number will be spray painted on the grass, gravel or blacktop.  Once payment is received, I will send you your booth number with a map.  All booths are $30 if paid by September 30th, $40 if paid after October 1 and if I have to chase you down for your booth fee on the day of the event - your booth will be $50.  Sorry, but....I can't do that anymore....I'm sure you understand, with the size of this event, it is too hard.


No sales of animals, firearms, alcohol and food (unless you are an approved food vendor).  We are a kid friendly, family fun event - please let your inventory and actions reflect that.

SPECIAL FEATURE/EVENT:  Inga Witscher, from PBS's Around the Farm Table will be giving a presentation at 1 pm in the town hall.  This will be FREE but we are encouraging a donation for nonperishable food or something for the Humane Society.  This is also and election year and I anticipate some politicians walking around.  Ashley, one of our 4H leaders is hosting a "Flea Market Flip" challenge with a $100 award and the event will have a "Junk Scavenger Hunt."  Lots of fun things for all ages.
