Exhibitor Booths

Non-profit booth spaces may be available at $1,050 per 10' x 10' space, and an IRS letter designating your organization as a non-profit, 501c3 organization will need to accompany your application.  We encourage non-profit organizations to provide a children's activity in our MAIN ST.

Commercial space costs are $6,000 for a 10' x 10' booth, $11,000 for a 10' x 20' booth and $20,000 for a 20' x 20' booth.

Novelty booths are defined as those offering activities, crafts or special art programs that charge a fee in order to participate in the activity.
