Calendars & Program Kiosks

Calendars & Program Kiosks – October 6 – 14, 2018

8 kiosks spaced along the length of the Balloon Fiesta Main Street can be opened for calendar and program sales during all official “sessions” of the multi-day event. The kiosks are assigned to applicant groups, each with their own inventory of calendars and programs. Groups may astaff more than one kiosk, if they can guarantee sufficient labor resources to cover requirements. Kiosks are staffed by “session,” approximately 5 hours each morning or evening, with the morning show up times from 4:30 a.m. and the evening shift from 4:30 p.m. Best practice suggests kiosks should be staffed by a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 people. Kiosks will be closed, as sessions conclude and crowds thin out. Every calendar or program sold will earn $1.00 for your organization.

Experience indicates each kiosk averages a yield of approximately $100.00 per session. For example, if your group staffs five kiosks in a single session, your group can expect to raise approximately $500.00. Sales are weather and crowd dependent; what is not constrained is your attitude and enthusiasm. Funds earned can be distributed to any organization designated by your group.  Funds will be distributed in mid-November, 2017.  We will not normally distribute funds to an individual because the individual will have to pay income tax on the distribution.

Groups approaching this opportunity with energy and a sense of fun do best in connecting and selling to the crowd. Wear shirts or bring signs that showcase your organization. Mascots (no live animals) and musical groups are allowed. Free parking and access to the grounds will be furnished to members of your group at training.

A short training for people handling money is required.  Training will be conducted at your organizations location.  Parking and access passes will be handed out at training.  Click here for MANDATORY TRAINING information.

All groups must complete a W-9 Form below. Please fill out an IRS Form W-9, Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification.  Checks cannot be mailed until we have a Form W-9.
