In 2017, we had a record number of vendors participate in our festival. Businesses, non-profits, and elected officials all set-up their displays, giving themselves an opportunity to connect with a record-size crowd.
You can bring your own tent, table, and chairs, or you can reserve a space under the Pride tents that we make available for the vendors who want it.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the door, however we prefer you sign-up ahead of the event so we have a ballpark headcount for catering purposes.
