Vendor Registration

DoubleTree Hotel
Grand Junction, Colorado
June 1–4, 2018

Vendor Application Deadline: May 1, 2018

Vendors much be ARARA members and need to be logged into this website in order to register.

Each vendor space includes one (1) table and two (2) chairs. Additional tables may be requested, but all requests beyond minimum requirements are subject to equipment and space availability.
A deposit of $25 is due with the application.

The vendor area will be secured at all times.

Sales Tax License
A special event license must be applied for prior to the event. A single event sales tax license is required when an individual, organization or vendor plans to conduct or participate
in a retail sales event at a location at which there are three or more vendors, other than the regular business operation The single event license is valid only for sales made during the single event. The fee is $8, but this license is free to vendors who already have a standard Colorado sales tax license. A license is required regardless of the anticipated amount of sales.

It is the vendor’s choice whether to purchase a Single Event Sales Tax License or a Multiple Events Sales Tax License, based on the number of events an individual plans to participate in and the license cost considerations. As a general rule, unless you know you will not participate in more than one event in a two-year period, it will be more cost-effective to purchase a multiple events license. Through Revenue Online,, you may report and pay taxes for an event where you have recently made sales AND you may obtain a single event or multiple events license. If you already have a sales tax or special event license, you may report and pay taxes through Revenue Online. If you cannot register for an event license or file and pay taxes online, you may fill out a Vendor Special Event License Application for Single or Multiple Events (DR 0589) and then file your event sales tax on the Special Event Retail Sales Tax Return (DR 0098).
