Vendor spots to fill, filling up fast. Spots are 10'x10' and are a flat rate of $40 per day for regular vendor spots. Pay for 3 Days and get the 4th Free!! You must provide your own tables and set up. This is limited hydro on vendor sites. Vendors have access to area during the day/morning before for set up if required, there will be security on the premises during the night but keep in mind the lions or staff are not responsible for and loss of or damaged property.

Looking for all types of vendors but want a variety, we do not want multiple booths with the same items. Spots are first come first serve and are subject to approval by the show hosts. The $40 fee can be paid in cash or by cheque which must clear no later than the week prior to show.
We are projecting strong numbers, with approximately 3000-5000 weekend visitors. Hoping to create successful show vendor rapport as this event is an annual show.

Some of the specific vendors I'm searching for are booths that sell:
-custom jewelry and body jewelry
-custom clothing
-designer inspired purses, sunglasses, etc
-die cast cars, trucks, etc
-vintage, rockabilly, pinup clothing and accessories by brands such as or similar to Lucky13, Sourpuss, iron fist
-clothing-sweaters, hats, scarves, dresses, etc
-henna and airbrushing tattoos
-artists with sketches and prints of celebrities and/or anything vintage like. Would also be great to have an artist who can do caricatures of their customers
-someone who does feather hair extensions
-Ecigarettes and vapor products
-scentsy
-alloette
-epicure
-pandora charms and accessories
-food trucks(icecream, funnel cakes, beaver tails, blooming onions, pretzels,etc) and packaged food/goods(fudge, candy apples, dried and cured meats)

Words from a Fresh Air Fund host family.






     This summer will be our 7th year with our Fresh Air son!!!  What started out as a slightly awkward first meeting has turned into a very special relationship.  We have done many things during Armani's visits, but I know that it is just being together that is the best part.  The boys feel like brothers (and act like it too)!  

     In fact, everyone was so happy together, that we arranged to have extra long visits for the past 3 summers........the Fresh Air Fund made it work.  This summer I will have 3 teenagers in the house!! As much as I know that we have had a positive influence on Armani, knowing him has changed our lives also, for the better.

Simple Things




     Imagine not being able to walk barefoot through the grass, go on a picnic, or gaze up at the stars.  It is these simple things that make the Fresh Air Fund experiences so incredible!  

     The Fresh Air Fund is a non-profit organization out of New York City that provides summer vacations to inner city kids and has been serving children since 1877.

     We are looking for families willing to open their homes and their hearts to a child in need of a break this summer from the hot, noisy city.
Our trip dates for Summer 2014 are:
July 21 - August 5 and August 12 - August 22

If you are interested in becoming a host and would like more information please visit www.freshair.org or email whaywood@cogeco.ca.
