Do you advertise for the show? How well attended is the fair?

This is an expected recurring event at Mt Charleston. Besides Ads, flyers and other martketing materials,  there is signage placed well in advance of the show on roads and cross-roads nearby as well as the nearest businesses down the mountain. We also post our event on several craft show, festivials and fairs pages, The mountain is the ONLY cool place away from the Las Vegas valley heat and experience heavy traffic on the weekends. The Retreat is the first business after coming up the mountain.  It is right on the road to hiking, camping, driving the scenic route and next to the Spring Mountain Visitor's Gateway, as well as being a destination for hikers to partake in the tasty treats before and after hiking.

When can vendors set up? Can vendors stay set up Saturday night?

Check-in for all vendors starts Saturday morning at 6:30am, and 8am (if needed) Sunday morning.

For those vendors who spend Friday and Saturday night at The Retreat on Charleston Peak, you will be able to check in, receive space number and may be able to set up Friday after 4pm.  Early check-in and possible set-up is only for those staying at the hotel. We are also considering a meet and greet on Friday evening if there are enough vendors staying at the hotel. 

The Hotel is offering discounted rooms for our vendors Friday, and Saturday, nights  There will be a discount for our vendors 10-15% off the normal standard rate based on availability. Make your reservations as soon as possible if you wish to stay at the hotel. Contact the Retreat at: 702.872.5500 or email them at Reservations@retreatoncharlestonpeak.comBe sure to ask for the Kyle Canyon Crafters Vendor discount to receive the discount.

At vendor's own risk, nearly all vendors stay set up Saturday night. Always a good idea to cover indoor tables with cloth, secure or box merchandise out of sight, and zip up outside booths. There will be no security, so it is at the vendors own risk.  We always recommend getting vendor insurance.  May policies can be found online for $49 for the days your are here.  Be sure to add" The Retreat on Charleston Peak and Kyle Canyon Crafters for the additional insured and supply a copy to us.

Where exactly will booths be located? Can I have last year's booth?

With changes and renovations at The Retreat, the exact layout of booths  may change from year to year. Generally speaking, Outdoor booths are usually located in the grassy areas adjacent to the hotel's front and side entrances, the wooden terrace and where the old pond used to be in front of the hotel.
Feel free to contact us at KyleCanyonCrafters@yahoo.com if you have any concerns regarding your booth space and set-up.
