The exhibitor and vendor areas add to the Festival atmosphere, thanks to the wide variety of commercial and nonprofit exhibitors and vendors who participate. Festival visitors learn about literacy programs throughout the state and region, sign up for newsletters and literary publications, and buy T-shirts, books, and lots of other fun things, including refreshing food and drink options. You can register in fall 2016 for next year's Festival
Full information is on the application form, but briefly, we offer two types of vendor/exhibitor space: booths in a tent (pictured above) and open-air tables (tables in the open, usually under a tree). The cost for commercial vendors is $80 for an open-air table and $160 for a booth in a tent. The cost for nonprofit exhibitors (501(c)(3) organizations) is $30 for an open-air table and $60 for a booth in a tent.
Commercial vendors are responsible for paying city, county and state sales tax on anything they sell at the Festival; we will help you get the necessary vendor/business licenses from the city and county, and the cost for them will be approximately $48.
