Spring Fever FAQs 

Is there a vendor packet that I need to pick up?

All information will be sent via email. The event layout will be sent early the week of the event. Vendors are welcome to email or call the chamber with any questions they may have.

Do you recommend a raffle for the booths at Spring Fever?

You are welcome to do a raffle or something else to invite people into your booth, this is not required, though is recommended – it’s all about getting more traffic into your booth. Some of our vendors in the past have held fun contests, had spin-the-wheel activities and games to win chances for a prize. You want to create a mailing list of those who stop by so give them a reason to sign up! Everyone loves to walk away with something and be a winner!

Do sponsors need to bring their own banners?

Yes. If you are a sponsor of this event, you will need to bring your own banner which can be dropped off the week prior to the event, but no later than Wednesday, April 27th. Banners can be dropped off at the Farmers Insurance – Carolyn Weeks Agency office at 231 W. FM 544, Murphy, TX. Commonly used size for a banner is 8’W x 3’H with grommets in the top corners.

What do I provide to set up my booth?

You need to bring your 10×10 tent, tables, chairs, banners, tent weights, etc; whatever you are featuring in your tent. It will be good to have water, snacks and sunscreen for those in the booths! Have something that people can walk away from your booth with and remember you by.

 

Do we need to provide all the cinder blocks for set up?

You need to bring your 10×10 tent, tables, chairs, banners, tent weights, etc; whatever you are featuring in your tent. Maybe water and some snacks. Handouts are recommended, something that people can walk away from your booth with and remember you by.

What happens if it rains, is windy?

The event takes place rain or shine. Please be prepared for wind with anything necessary to secure your tent and items in your tent.

Where can I park?

Parking for vendors is available in the north end of the PSA parking lot and also at the City of Murphy parking lots, located next to the large soccer field/east of the Police Department. Also, a map will be provided with your other vendor information via email the week before the event.

How many people normally attend this event?

We expect numbers around 1500-2000 on a typical year. 

Do you assign our location? If so, when will we know that?

Location will be sent via email early the week of the event. The park will be marked so that you will know where to set up your booth based on your assigned number and map which will be emailed to you early in the week of the event.

Is power available?

No power is available.  If you need power you will need to bring your own generator and will need to contact the Fire Marshall for sign-off. City of Murphy Fire Marshal Perry Elliot: 972-468-4300 or 972-468-4312; pelliott@murphytx.org.

Is there something we could offer that is different or needed?

The Allstate Insurance booth always does face painting and features a balloon animal designer and there is always a long line to get into their booth. One booth will be doing glitter braids, another offering riding tricycles, the Murphy Chamber Scholarship Foundation will have a ladder golf game and pinot palette painting activity Lots of ideas. You want to create a mailing list of those who stop by so give them a reason to sign up! Everyone loves to walk away with something and be a winner! 

Any other tips to make this as successful as possible?

It’s a 6-hour event – make sure you staff your booth so that you all have a chance to take a break and walk around some, enjoy the entertainment and have a bite to eat.  It’s always a good idea to bring something that people can walk away from your booth with. Ideas include a photo booth, contest activities, give-aways, etc.! The people manning your booth should enjoy speaking to the public.

Are permits necessary?

If you are planning on serving any food from your booth, you may need a temporary food permit from the City of Murphy. You can download the permit from the City’s website at murphytx.org. Please note, it must be filed at least 5 days before the event, by Monday, April 25th, at the latest.  If you need a permit, review from the Fire Marshall, you can reach Fire Marshall Perry Elliott at pelliott@murphytx.org. Also, you can refer to cottage law information for more information on food handling requirements at https://www.dshs.texas.gov/foodestablishments/permitting.aspx#no-permit
