Categories

Experiential

Experiential activations are those offering an experience or service to attendees. Such as workshops, games, vintage wares, photo ops, beauty bars, portraits, and more. Experientials who charge a fee for their activity or service or sell things in addition to their activation pay the Maker + Designer rate, since they are vending creative products or services.

Installations

Contemporary, interactive, and impactful ~ we’re seeking installations that are inspiring, well crafted, and dynamic. Applicants should submit detailed proposals for their installation when applying, including dimensions and resources needed for their activation. Installations are site-specific and free for attendees to experience.

Booth Options

General

We offer a variety of booth sizes and options at each Fair to make our events dynamic and accessible to all!

Please reference the booth options above to see example set-ups in each category. Booth sizes and prices vary across all Fairs. Check out our pricing guide below for a complete breakdown. Please carefully consider your booth size when applying.

Shared

Shared Booths are a great option for vendors who have small products or limited inventory, and can use space creatively with others. You will be paired with another accepted participant to coordinate your booth. Depending on the specific Fair and venue, individual footprints for Shared Booths can range from 3’(across) x 6’(deep) to 5’(across) x 10’(deep). Please note that in order to share the space equally, vendors need to set-up side-by-side or in an L-shape, which oftentimes places the short side of your display facing the aisle. Please read our FAQ below about Booth Sharing for more info about this option.

Full

Our standard sized booth for each Fair, Full Booths can range from 6’x6’ to 10’x10’ depending on the venue space. This is a great option and recommended for those interested in having a dedicated booth, larger products and displays, or a good amount of inventory to sell at the Fair. With a Full Booth, layout and display options are more open and versatile and offer the best experience for selling at the Fair.

Double

Double Booths are equal to two Full Booths side-by-side. This is an excellent way to make a bigger impact at the Fair, showcase larger work and complex displays, increase your offerings, or host an Experiential Activation. Also a great option for Collectives, Galleries, or Organizations to offer an installation or showcase at the Fair. Double Booths range from 6’x12’ to 10’x20’, depending on the venue.

Mobile

Mobile Booths are movable and compact booth displays that roam throughout the event (for example, a cart on wheels.)

This is a great option for those who want to add an element of surprise and “pop-up” throughout the Fair. Mobile vendors are required to move throughout the venue and cannot be stationary for long periods of time.

Trucks/Trailers

Food trucks, Airstream trailers, hitch trailers and more fit under this category. Makers + Designers can apply using the Experiential category for this option in the application. Food Trucks should apply using the Food + Drink Purveyor option.

Custom

Larger / custom footprints are available in limited capacity at the Fairs, and are an excellent way to stand out. Experiential Activations and Sponsors are the best fit for this option, and should provide details and dimensions in their application. Installations are also considered custom footprints, with applied-for dimensions considered after application.
