Any business selling merchandise needs to collect Illinois sales tax. The sales tax rate in Champaign is 9%. If the business is from Illinois, they should already be registered with the State of Illinois Department of Revenue. Out of state businesses should visit the state's web site for more information on registration:

Sellers are required to complete this tax form and send it and receipts to: Illinois Department of Revenue, Collections Bureau, P.O. Box 19035, Springfield, IL 62794-9035.

We have an umbrella permit that covers all vendors at this event. When you return your completed vendor registration form (below) with your payment, we will send the City of Champaign a copy of the form and you will automatically be covered.

Tables are 6' in length and electric outlets at the Armory are limited. No "backdrops", over 5 feet high, including signage, are allowed. We cannot guarantee that you will be placed near an outlet. Please bring your own extension cords for hook-up. There will no longer be parking available right outside the entrance. You will be allowed 15 minutes to unload, then you must move your vehicle. We will have someone from the club or student volunteers available to help unload.

Vendors may set-up on Friday, January 23rd beginning at 3:00 pm. The Armory will be open until 8:00 pm to facilitate set-up. VENDORS ARRIVING AFTER 7:00 PM ON FRIDAY, MAY NOT SET-UP UNTIL SATURDAY MORNING.

Applications must be turned in with payment by January 9th, 2015. Any application received after that date is subject to space availability and a $20 late fee. Please get your application turned in early. Space will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis.
