MID-ALLEN ROAD BUSINESSES: Reserve the Booth Space near the Front of Your BusinessCharge: $50 per 10’ x 10’ spaceIf your business is located within the Street Fair area (Allen Road between Southfield and Roosevelt) you may reserve booth space near the front of the building. You may erect a booth and sell merchandise from your store in this space or simply leave it empty to enhance customers’ ability to see your establishment. The Commission will make every attempt to honor requests for more than one space and to give businesses the space directly in front of the store, however in some cases it is necessary to limit a business to one space or provide a space in the general area of the business.
