Exhibitors and vendors from the previous year are usually invited back to the next, upcoming
Fair providing that they met our expectations and are in good standing. Return Invitations are
sent out mid-December and are due back to the Space Rental Office by February 1st. It is at
this point that new vendors are placed in open locations around the Fairgrounds. New vendor
selection continues until all available spaces are filled.
Generally, we receive more new vendor applications than we physically have space to
accommodate. Management reviews all applications taking into consideration size, electrical
needs, type of product or services, attractiveness of booth/trailer, revenue potential to the
Department and sanitation requirements. Vendors with unique products have a greater chance
of being selected and placed in prime locations.
