To exhibit all vendors are required to have a transient vendor’s license (it costs $25.00 to obtain one) this allows you to sell at a public venue, and the city does come and inspect frequently. A copy of your vendor’s license is due at the latest, the Monday before the event (you can still send in your app with payment while you await the license to arrive). You can find the form to obtain a license here.

The cost to participate in this event is $125.00 this includes a 10x10 space. Vendors are required to provide the following:

  • Any tables and/or chairs you would like to use. Please no tents as this is an indoor event.

Please note, your uploaded application/contract must accompany your fee and will not be considered complete until both are received. 

Deadline to register for this event is either till we are full, or the Wednesday prior to the event, whichever happens first.

  • If you require more than one 10x10 space, please feel free to register for multiple booth spaces. Each additional space is an additional $125.00.
