A very limited number of spaces have electricity and are assigned on a first come, first served basis. All vendors must supply their own tents, tables, tablecloths, chairs, booth necessities and extension cords (when applicable).
In an effort to ensure a diverse array of products and services and to limit the number of duplications, the Vendor Committee will notify you upon reviewing your application if it has been declined. For this reason, it is beneficial to submit your application early, as applications are reviewed in the order they are received.
