Number of Exhibits Exhibitors will be placed in the cafeteria, hallways and gym. We reserve the right to limit the number of like exhibits to ensure a broad variety of displays. Therefore, it is very important for you to indicate your major article(s) for sale on your registration form. This helps to decrease duplicates being sold. Registrations received are dated and exhibition/sale of your item(s) will be determined by that date. *Exhibition placement will depend upon registration date and show coordinator's discretion. Our shows fill quickly and are most often full well before the deadline. Publicity Everyone is asked to take part and do their share in promoting this event. We will publicize through the Brainerd Dispatch, radio stations, faculty in the area schools and local stores permitting signs. Much more is needed and we enlist your help and support. If you have any "ins" please publicize. Suggestions: newspapers (other than Dispatch), beauty shops, church bulletins, company lunchrooms, club newsletters, club meetings, and bazaars. Flyers will be sent out with your table/space assignment number at least ONE WEEK PRIOR TO THE FESTIVAL. Items to be sold Items must be made by YOU or someone in your family and do NOT include baked goods. NO imports or articles made from kits or commercial items may be sold. Persons violating this rule may be asked to leave and will not be allowed in future shows. Tables & Spaces We will provide a limited number of tables at $5 per table and two chairs PER registration entry at no cost. Both 8' and 6' tables are the same price. Once these tables have been distributed on a first come first serve basis, additional chairs may be requested. You will be notified as to which of the above will apply to you. Tables should be covered. Tables are approximately 30' wide. See space depth information below. You may request an 8' space, and provide your own table or display providing they do not exceed the space allotted. Please indicate this on your registration form. Because of limited space, you must REQUEST permission to bring in extra equipment for your items. (T-stands, easels, etc.) Please note this when registering. These items must fit in your designated space allowed! Space Depth The depth of each area is dependent upon the area you are assigned. The maximum depth of the cafeteria and gym, 6' or 12' X 12' per space. The hallway depths are an exception to this as they can only be 4' in depth.
