Vendor Application

Submitting a Vendor Application does not guarantee acceptance or a specific space assignment. Vending is not assigned on a first come, first served basis. Colorado Leather Fest selects its vendors based on a commitment to offer a diverse and unique selection of products to our attendees. Space is limited and we would like to have as many different vendors as possible. For those reasons we are limiting space size and only allowing one space per vendor.

Key Dates

  • Applications will be accepted through December 1, 2019.
  • All applicants will be notified by email of the selection decision by December 15, 2019.
  • Vendors must submit payment for their space (by registering for the event) by January 15, 2020 or their space will be offered to another vendor. (No exceptions.)
  • Ads for the Run Book must be received by March 1, 2020. (No exceptions.)
