Mail application and payment to:

NC Whirligig Festival 
PO Box 2124 
Wilson, NC 27894 

NC Business Registration requirement: According to NC General Statue, passed in August 2013, a "person engaged in business in NC and selling tangible personal property at specialty markets, flea markets, fairs, festivals, sporting events, entertainment events, and other events and functions must register with the North Carolina Department of Revenue and is required to collect and remit sales and use tax unless a specific exemption applies to the product sold." In order to obtain a Certificate of Registration, a person must complete Form NC-BR, Business Registration Application for Income Tax Withholding, Sales and Use Tax available online from the department’s website: NC Dept of Revenue

Therefore, the festival has added space on the Vendor application for the Business Registration/Tax ID #. If you do not have your number at the time of application, simply write in "pending". The number can be added at a later date. We do not want to delay your festival application!

Vendor Insurance In addition, the NC statues require all vendors selling to the public, be covered by an insurance policy. For many home crafters, this may be covered by your home-owner’s policy. While the festival has event insurance to cover major incidents, the policy does not cover any vendors, vendor items, vendor belongings, vendor merchandise or vendor personnel.
