Applications are taken are a first-come, first-serve basis. So the earlier you submit your application, you’re more likely to secure your first choice of location(s). Current booths available – updated daily – are indicated on the show floor plan {here}

Application review/approval time takes approximately 10-15 business days and you will be notified of your status via email. Upon approval, you will receive a contract to be submitted along with fee payment.

Vintage Fan Fair is intended to include a wide variety of businesses, representing all different eras/styles; therefore, there is a limited number of vendors allowed per category. This benefits your business in limiting the number of direct competitors; as well as, providing a well-rounded and interesting show for the attendees. Please keep this in mind, as submission of an application does not guarantee approval.
