Welcome 2018 Exhibitors and Vendors!

Last year’s festival was our largest ever: 2 stages, 150 vendors, 18 performances, 20 food vendors — and an estimated 15,000 people.  This year, we are adding a third stage. In a post-festival survey, we asked exhibitors whether they achieved their objectives.  100% said “Yes”.  77% said, “We knocked it out of the park!”.  The remaining 23% responded, “We did great!”

Exhibitor Bonus: Patron of Pride Add-On

By popular demand, we are expanding our Patron of Pride Promotion package and making it available to vendors and non-profits at substantially lower donation levels.    Unlike booth fees, monies to our Patron of Pride program are tax-deductible.

We created this program for local organizations and individuals who want to amplify their support of our community programs.  We created it to support our recent expansion of local services and our support of community partners.  Festival exhibitors benefits too (see table below)
