10x10 corner booths will be given to Sponsors first, followed by booth shares. If you prefer a corner booth, please indicate why below and we will do our best, but cannot guarantee them.

Word of mouth is the best advertising! Attendance and sales are not guaranteed. Refunds will not be given because of poor turn out or lack of sales.
