            VENDOR FAQ

            MY CATEGORY IS SOLD OUT

            If your category is sold out it does NOT mean that the fair is sold out. Please add yourself to our waitlist. Waitlist approval will be performed on a rolling basis. We expect to provide an answer within 5-10 business days, depending on when you joined the waitlist.

            WAITLIST

            In the event of a sell out of spaces by category or availability you can opt for the wait list.

            Once a category or the fair is full, you can opt to be placed on our waitlist. To officially be on the waitlist is a quick two step process.

            • Step 1: Register for the waitlist via Eventbrite. You will be sent an email with step two.
            • Step 2: Within that email you will be directed to a form to provide the fair with your vendor type and some additional information on your business/booth.

            If you do not complete both steps, you are not considered on the waitlist.

            Waitlist approval will be ongoing. We expect to provide an answer or status update within 5-10 business days.
