SUNDAY is Steampunk Day! Dress up in Steampunk Attire on Sunday and get free admission.

Notice: The city has again raised our costs to put on the show. I have resisted raising our vendor costs for many years but I'm afraid I do need to do a small increase. Starting in 2019 the vendor spaces will increase by $10.00. They are also charging $25 per booth for electricity.

However they don't charge for tables and chairs so that will offset some of the increases and make setup easier - you won't have to bring tables!

We are switching to email and online registration where possible to help cut postage costs.
If you don't have email please let us know so we can continue to mail your application reminder.
Conversly if you have email please let us know so we can stop mailing postcards (unless you want us to)

FAQ
1. Is there electricity available in the booth?
Yes there is electricity available. There are outlets all along the walls and overhead above the rows starting with booths 43 and 45. There is a $20 charge per booth using electricity. You will need 3 prong ext. cords. The Center aisle is a bit harder, you may have to tape a cord across the floor.

2. Can we bring our own tables and chairs?
You are welcome to bring your own tables and chairs. Pop-Up's can be used but we suggest not putting the tops on since that makes it darker.

3. Is there any separation between booths (I.E. Canvas)?
There aren't any separators or walls between booths, we prefer a more open look for the show. We mark the spaces out on the floor. You can get an idea of what it looks like on the past shows page: http://www.tannersreno.com/past/photos.htm

4. Is special parking available for vendors?
The show has free parking. We suggest vendors park in the lot behind the building and you are welcome to leave vehicles/trailers overnight. You can load in and out through the closest door to your booth. During the show please park behind the building to leave open parking for customers in the front.
The Livestock Events Center has RV spaces for rent, you would contact them about costs etc. 775-335-8901

Friday setup usually starts at about 10:00. Saturday we open the doors for vendors at 7:00 for those that want to set up Sat. morning. Sunday we open at hour early at 8:00. The show hours for customers are Sat. 9 to 5 and Sun. 10 to 3.

7. Do our helpers/family get in free?
Yes they do. They just need to tell the person at the door that they are there to help you.

If you would like to help advertise the show we have created a flier with tear off tabs that you can print out and post on local bulletin boards. Most grocery stores etc. have places to post local events and every little bit helps get the word out. There is also a flier that can be printed and placed on the counter (3 fliers per page). The more people that come the better everyone's sales will be!
Please post an ad on Craigs List too.

If it doesn't print in color you may have to save it locally and open it in adobe Reader.

We have some advertising signs that are 18" x 24" that can be placed near a busy road the week before the show. Let me know if you have a place where one can be put that will show well and not be illegal and I can see about getting it to you. They will have to be picked back up right after the show so they don't disappear.
