Vendor Information

Important information regarding the Colonel Gray Craft Fair 2020

On Friday, we enter Phase 4 of the Renew PEI plan, which requires continued adherence to mass gatherings and public health restrictions. At this time, we do not know what the guidance will be for large crowds in the Fall and we must wait for direction from Chief Public Health Office, Public Schools Branch, or the Department of Education and Lifelong Learning before we can decide what the 2020 craft fair will look like.  Decisions regarding the Colonel Gray 2020 Craft Fair will be made in September.

As a registered vendor for the 2020 craft fair, you are very important to us. We understand that your presence at our fair is very important to your business, as well as our band program.

We want to be transparent with our vendors about possible scenarios for the 2020 fair.

  • If the Craft Fair is canceled, we will offer a refund and a priority registration option for the 2021 fair.
  • If a vendor wishes to withdraw registration due to the uncertainty, we will offer a full refund.
  • If the Craft Fair proceeds with limited capacity, we will determine a fair process for selecting vendors and offer a refund to those not selected with a priority registration option for the 2021 fair. We will not decide on this process until we have clear directives from the CPHO.
  • Alternatively, if any vendors wish to donate the value of their registration to the band program if the event it is downsized or cancelled, we would be very grateful for the generosity.
  • A vendor can still register by sending in their cash/registration form to the school, but please be aware that this money will only be held in a safe and will not be deposited. This will make it easy to reimburse anyone if it is deemed necessary.

Please note that we had originally indicated June 15 as a critical date for registration and payment. This is no longer applicable due to current circumstances.  We will communicate again in September once a decision has been made, and process credits or refunds as necessary at that time.

If you require immediate reimbursement, please contact the registrar at graycraftfair@gmail.com to make arrangements.

All the best for a relaxing Summer.
