1. How do I obtain an Arizona Tax Privilege (Sales Tax) License? This license is required of all exhibitors participating in any and all events located in Arizona for purposes of collecting sales tax . While Magic Bird will assist you in keeping up to date on total sales tax for each venue, it is your responsibility as a business owner to know this information. Check for current up to date sales tax rates for each location at www.azdor.gov.
2. Do I need a City Tax License?
a. The Towns of Cave Creek, Gilbert, and Fountain Hills require that each Exhibitor add or include them as a PROGRAMMED CITY on your Arizona Tax Privilege License. The current procedure to do add cities or towns to your existing state of Arizona Tax Privilege (Sales Tax) License go to www.azdor.gov and process a Business Account Update, currently form number 10193. This process is a one-time and one-time only detail. Once your Arizona Tax Privilege (Sales Tax) License or sales tax is updated in this way you never have to do it again (at this time). If you are obtaining an Arizona Tax Privilege (Sales Tax) License for the first time, be sure you request that one or more of the programmed cities and towns be added as is relevant to your exhibit business plan.
b. Williams also requires a vendor permit license per event and Magic Bird Festivals (Roberta) processes this for you and pays the Town of Williams on your behalf. This fee totals $10.
c. Cave Creek, Fountain Hills, and Gilbert and Scottsdale all require you to obtain and display a business license or in the case of Scottsdale, their tax license. For more information go to www.cavecreek.org, www.fh.az.gov or www.gibertaz.gov. or www.scottsdaleaz.gov.
d. All sales by vendors are made directly to customers and vendors are responsible for all their own bookkeeping and sales tax collections and payments. Magic Bird Festivals requires that you provide your state and city tax numbers so that we are able to provide lists to the state and city when requested.
Farm N Art Integrity: We are a Farmers Market and we strive to maintain that integrity. To be a consistent vendor at Farm N Art, products must fall into one of the following categories: food, plant, kitchen or garden. If your product does not fit into one of the listed categories you may apply as a “Visiting Artist.”
Visiting Artists: The number of “Visiting Artists” admitted to the market is limited. Visiting Artists participate in the market on a rotating schedule.
Additional information: Farm N' Art reserves the right to determine categorical placement and may reject any vendor applicant at any time for any or no reason.
Changes in fee structure: Magic Bird Festivals reserves the right to modify its fee structure at any time, immediately upon notice to Vendor.
Farm N Art Conduct: Vendors, this is your market as much as it is ours. Consistency (being here every week), Timeliness (being set up, car moved and ready to vend 10 minutes prior to market opening) and friendliness (being considerate of each other) are essential in order for us to thrive! We do not support negative talk in the marketplace. If your struggle with any of these things then Farm N Art is likely not a good fit for you.
Displays: Each vendor must provide their own white tent, chairs, tables & tablecloths. Each tent must be secured with four tent weights in the amount of at least 20 pounds per tent leg.
1. All events receive major media advertising. Advertising and directional event signs are placed as best allowed by very restrictive city and town codes.
2. On site RV parking and camping is NOT AVAILABLE. You are expected to make arrangements for parking of large rigs. Magic Bird Festivals is happy to direct you to nearby parks.
3. At outdoor event locations we highly recommend using a professional and sturdy tent canopy. You MUST have a professional weight system for that canopy and any loss of yours or someone else’s product and/or display equipment due to severe weather belongs to you.
4. Set up for most events this season will begin the afternoon of the day prior to that event weekend. Details will be provided in your e-mailed confirmation and instructions. Come prepared with hand carts, etc. for most expeditious and efficient set up and please be COURTEOUS TO YOUR FELLOW VENDORS.
5. Over night SECURITY is PROVIDED.
6. FOOD CONCESSION VENDORS: Additional requirements for food concession vendors includes obtaining and providing copy of your Maricopa County Environmental Services Health Licenses and providing Magic Bird Festivals with Certificate of Insurance naming Magic Bird Festivals, LLC and the City and their venue location as additional insureds.
