We'll let you know by email if we have any questions and if your project is accepted. We'll make every attempt to fit in everyone who submits a proposal that fits the goals of this event: to bring together design, fabrication, and inspiration in an exciting public event.

The submission deadline is September 12. Because we need to submit a list of vendors to the city on September 13, we will not be able to accept vendors after September 12, but submissions for other exhibit types received after the deadline will be reviewed based on available space.
