A completed application does not guarantee participation.  Vendors will be selected based on several criteria including menu items and originality.  There are fewer than 16 spaces for this event, and we typically have 50+ applications.  We try to set a line up that we feel will appeal best to our ChristmasVille patrons while trying to be as fair as possible to our vendors.  Staff will limit the number of vendors selling  similar items.
