What is included in the booth fee? Your booth fee guarantees your chosen booth space. WIFI is also included in your booth fee. The fee also covers extensive marketing of your brand. We pride ourselves on our top-notch promotion of the market and our amazing vendors. We utilize many forms of traditional advertising and social media marketing to do so. Your company name, description, and a single photo will appear on our website – our shoppers LOVE this feature and will be checking you out so be sure to link to your own social media pages and put your best foot forward. Each and every maker will also be featured on our social media accounts through one of the following: stories, batching + singular posts.  Our social media team reserves the right to build our feed + choose photos for batching and single photos posts.  They may chose to use photos submitted or pull a photo from your feed (with permission).  We DO NOT provide tables or chairs. Electrical is an additional fee and is selected as an 'add on' at the time of booth purchase.

What is a CORNER booth? This booth type simply means your booth space will have an open side, allowing you extra space to service customers. A corner booth does not guarantee that you will be on an aisle that has cross traffic. Your corner booth could simply be at the end of a row or a break between booths.

Is there electrical? Red River Exhibition Place does provide electrical, however, it is limited and not every booth spot will have direct access. Please ensure that you have up to 25ft of extension cord to ensure your reach. Electrical purchases will need to be made at the time of your booth purchase as an additional fee. Red River charges the following: 15amp - $65 50amp - $100

What categories of vendors do you accept? Accessories (ex. scrunchies,  bags/purses) Art + Print Baby + Kids Bath + Body Beauty + Wellness Candles Ceramics Clothing Food + Drink Food Trucks Games Housewares Jewelry Multi-store Pet Plants + Garden Stationery We do not accept applications selling vintage/antique items for re-sale such as furniture + clothing. Though we love this movement, this is a market showcasing independent designer’s work. * We reserve the right to ask you not to bring certain products due to over saturation.

What do I do if I have items still in production, not ready or photographed at the time of applications? If you have a collection that is not yet in production you may upload past photos (please show us ones you have not yet applied with in the past). However we do ask that you EMAIL us at right after you apply showing us your prototypes with a brief explanation so the jury knows what to fully accept.  Please put in subject line: COMPANY NAME + PROTOTYPE

Do I have to have a hand in the creation of the product? Yes! Vendors have to play a role in the overall design of the manufactured product.   We understand that not every piece used in the creation of a product will be originally designed by the vendor + we make allowance for assembly pieces. For example: zippers, jewelry clasps, chains, frames, clothing for screen print, etc.

Do you allow booth sharing? We do not allow booth sharing between two separate vendors, however, if you a multi-business owner, we are exploring this option. It will be an evolving process with poilcies and requirements being developed as we navigate this option. For this current market, individuals who wish to apply with multiple companies that would share a booth space are asked to fill out an application for EACH business and to email us at to let us know your intention of booth sharing so we can assess each case.
