Application – Vendor

WWWC10 (2021) Vending Application

You will be contacted shortly after filling out the form with a payment link.

All spaces and options are first-come-first-serve and will sell out.
We jury our vendors, so not all vendors will be accepted (primarily to reduce vendors selling the same items and ensure quality and value for our guests).

Information & Space Types

Spaces are for all three days of the convention.

There are three major Vendor areas available at WWWC:

Stage-II (type A & B): A large, indoor vendor area. Includes a stage, food and drink bar and restrooms. Electrical power is included. Also referred to as the “Vendor Barn”. 2 chairs, 6-ft table and access to electrical power is included with every space.

WWWC Vendor Tent (type C): Huge 150-foot long outdoor tent with side walls and transparent windows that has space for many vendors. 2 chairs, 6-ft table and access to electrical power is included with some of the spaces.

Vendor-Supplied Tent spaces (type D): over 6,000 square feet of total space is available for large individual tents.

Information you need to know:

Vendor Badge: all full size (not half-size) options (A,B,C and D) include two “Vendor Badges”. A vendor badge functions the same as a regular 3-day Maverick pass, with the added benefit of designating you as a vendor (so you can get in during setup and teardown, etc. This is important for our security team.)

Free for all park guests: a Horse-Drawn Trolley! This popular attraction is a open-air, 20-person horse-drawn trolley transport that is free to all guests and runs continuously during Old Tucson park hours. This takes patrons from the Old Tucson main street (behind the Saloon) to the vendor area (dropping off in the vendor tent / vendor barn area)!5
