If you are selling goods (such as crafts or clothing), please include a few of the items you plan to bring.
Booth rental fees are for the physical BOOTH SPACE ONLY. We do not take orders for tents, tables and chairs. If you would like to go through our preferred vendor for rentals, please inquire.
If your booth requires more than one 10' x 10' space, please let us know in your description. On the payment screen, increase the quantity in order to pay for the additional space, for instance 2 would provide a 10x20 booth size. The prices reflected are for 1 space for your corresponding vendor type.
