Vendor Registration is Open for the WSD Back to School Fair

 

2017 BTS Fair

 

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN for vendors who want to participate in the Wentzville School District's 2019 Back to School Fair! This year's Fair has been scheduled for Saturday, August 3, 2019 from 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. at Timberland High School.

 

The WSD is seeking Corporate Sponsors for this year's Back to School Fair. For $300, you will receive a table at the event (you may choose location based on availability) and your company logo will be printed on the drawstring bags used to distribute free school supplies that day. Last year, thanks to our sponsors and participating vendors, we distributed over 2,100 bags filled with supplies worth over $9,600. 

 

To register as a vendor or Corporate Sponsor for the event, please complete this form, or give us a call and we will get you registered. Payment can be made via check, made out to the Wentzville School District or via Paypal using this link: paypal.me/WSDfoundation/300. (If you would like access to electricity, there is an additional cost of $25 so please use this link: paypal.me/WSDfoundation/325)

We will need your logo by July 3 in order to have the bags printed and delivered on time for the Fair.

 

The Back to School Fair is open to businesses and community groups as a means to reach our families in one place at one time. It is also intended to help our lower-income families as we distribute thousands of dollars’ worth of free school supplies at the event. Last year's event drew over 3,500 people.  It is a great event and the registration fee for businesses is only $60 ($85 if you need access to electricity). Those fees are used directly to purchase school supplies that are given to students in bags at the Fair. Provided with your registration are one table, two chairs, and a sign. We ask that you bring your own skirting for your table. Additional tables are available for $30.

 

Registration for non-profit groups is only $10 ($35 if you need access to electricity) and we ask that you provide a free school supply to hand out to students at your booth. Provided with your registration are one table, two chairs, and a sign. We ask that you bring your own skirting for your table.

 

The event is free for District families and will feature dozens of vendors (last year 130 vendors participated), free school supplies, games and fun activities for children. MoCHIP will be on hand once again this year to provide free child identification kits for children. In addition, St. Charles County Ambulance District is providing an opportunity for kids to put together a free first aid kit. 

 

"The Back to School Fair is designed to bring together local businesses, community groups, and our District families in one place to share valuable information, discounts and free school supplies in a fun and festive atmosphere," said Chief Communications Officer Mary LaPak. "It is beneficial to our families and our community and it's a tremendous way to kick off the new school year."

 

Those attending, as well as event vendors, are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to donate at the door to Operation Food Search which serves local families in need.
