Maker + Designer Booth Sizes + Prices

Shared/Half Booth

This is a good option for vendors who have small products or limited inventory, and can use space creatively with others. You will be paired with another accepted participant to coordinate your booth layout.

Holiday Market
3′ x 6′ – $125

Full Booth

This is our standard sized booth. This  is a great option for those interested in having a decent-sized display and a good amount of inventory at the Market. Layout and display options are more open and versatile.

Holiday Market
6′ x 6′ – $250

Double Booth

This is an excellent way to make a bigger impact at the Market, showcase larger work and complex displays, and increase your offerings, or to host a Special Feature. Also a great option for Collectives to offer a Showcase.

Holiday Market
6′ x 12′ – $500

 

Mobile Booth

Mobile Booths are movable, compact booth displays that roam throughout the event (for example, a cart on wheels). This is a fun option for folks who want to add an element of surprise and “pop up” throughout the Fair. Interested in bringing a trailer or truck please see our next booth option.

We have limited space to accommodate participants that use trucks or trailers as their setup. Food trucks, Airstream trailers, hitch trailers and more fit under this category. Makers + Designers can apply using the Special Feature category for this option in the application.

Custom

Larger / custom footprints are available in limited capacity at the Fairs, but are an excellent way to really stand out in the crowd. Special Features and Sponsors are the best fit for this option, and should provide details and dimensions in their application.
