Applicants will be accepted based on space available and how well we feel the organization will fit into Spoutwood Farm's educational mission. This includes anything that adds to the enjoyment of, protection for, or education about domestic or wild animals or plants and the environment, or allows human beings to better focus, relax and enjoy the above through such practices as holistic medicine, herbal healing, Feng Shui or Yoga.
Mother Earth Harvest Fair (MEHF) exhibitors should consider themselves educators of the public first, advocates of their own cause second, and fundraisers for their agenda third.
Exhibitors may set up a small booth or table to provide the public with information about their group. Exhibit space is free. You may only sell items that are self-generated (e.g., wool from your animals, t-shirts that you have printed, etc,) and that directly benefit your organization; in addition, if your products compete directly with our arts and crafts vendors, they will not be permitted. If you are an adopt-an-animal group, you may not provide on-the-spot adoption. Animal exhibits must be in accordance with the Festival's educational mission. MEHF will give permission for animal exhibits on a case-by-case basis.
MEHF will NOT be supplying a large tent for exhibitors this year. All exhibitors will be responsible for bringing their own tents, tables and chairs. We expect you to exhibit and staff your display area on the day of the Festival.
The wide variety of entertainment, vendors, interactive amusements, and good food are only a few of the reasons our Festival has gained popularity; attendees also recognize with appreciation our commitment to good works.
