There will be routine security in the area overnight on Friday, so you are free to leave any merchandise you wish in the Mari Center. If you are a past vendor and would like to request your same booth space as years past, please let me know when you register. You can add booth number or just make a note in the comment section so I will know. As you check in, whether that be Friday evening or the morning of the event, you will be directed to your booth space. If registering online, please place what items you are selling in the comments section of the registration form. This year we will not limit vendors selling duplicate items. We do understand that some companies only allow for one product to be sold per event, so we will honor those on a first come, first serve basis, but any other items that are being sold will not be limited. We will do our best to space out duplicate items. Last year we hosted over 85 vendors, and space is limited, so please register at your earliest convenience to secure your space. You will be given two wrist bands per registrant to work your booth space or spaces. Please note that anyone else helping you will be required to pay an entry fee of $5.00 to enter the extravaganza. Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email. Please be sure to give us accurate email and phone numbers so we are able to send you important information regarding the event.
