Dear Prospective Chicken Show Vendors,


The 39th Annual Chicken Show in Wayne, Nebraska begins with a Friday daytime Clucktique Sidewalk Market and Friday evening Henoween downtown on July 12th to Chicken Show activities in Bressler Park on Saturday, July 13th and at the Wayne Municipal Airport on Sunday, July 14th.


Vendors have the option of participating in the Friday daytime Clucktique Sidewalk Market on the sidewalk, as a street vendor on Friday evening or as a Saturday street vendor or in any combination. Individual generators will not be permitted, but generators for shared use will be provided in specific locations. Vendors may have limited maneuverability due to narrow city streets. Vendor spaces are assigned in 10x15 sq ft increments. If you plan to incorporate a trailer in your booth space, please note that you must set up on time. We will assign trailer spaces on a first come-first serve basis. Please be sure to check in with event staff at the information booth upon your arrival for additional last minute instructions and to confirm your location.


Each year we try to improve our show and to make it more profitable for you. Please review the 2019 Vendor Requirements.  A completed Registration Form must be returned with all applicable fees by May 31, 2019 to reserve your booth space. Commercial vendors also MUST PROVIDE PROOF OF LIABILITY INSURANCE in the amount of at least $300,000. Only those vendors who submit a timely and complete Registration Form can be assured of a reserved space. Late registrations will be handled on a case-by-case basis
