** The vending fee is $500 to be paid in full two weeks after your acceptance via a Paypal link. Directions will be sent upon confirmation. * ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THE VENDING FEE: This booth fee is based off a nationwide best practice called a "valuation process." The valuation process compares local booth prices at similar events and analyzes our brand exposure of the 10,000+ people that will be in attendance. Our valuation formula accounted for interacting with less than 10% of our audience. This type of interactive engagement is a powerful advertising opportunity. Vendors receive unmatched outcomes when spending comparable dollars with a local media outlet. * If your business makes less that $50,000 a year- please indicate on the form below and we can discuss our small business fee with you directly (that booth fee is $250).
** If you would like to talk about Sponsorships to further connect with your audience (prime booth location + many other direct marketing opportunities), please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can custom create a package designed for your business' target markets.
** All tents/canopies must be secured or weighted down on all corners with: ~ no less than 50lbs per leg (2 standard cinder blocks) and ~ must be secured with rope or string that has a minimum of 50lb test
