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. You will need 3 prong ext. cords. The Center aisle is a bit harder, you may have to tape a cord across the floor. There is no extra charge.

2. Can we bring our own tables and chairs?
You are welcome to bring your own tables and chairs and I suggest lights since the building isn't very bright. Pop-Up's are welcome but we suggest not putting the covers on since that makes it even darker.

3. Is there any separation between booths (I.E. Drapes)?
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:

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 Events Center has RV spaces for rent, you would contact them about costs etc. 775-335-8901

5. How early can we come each day to set up?
Friday setup usually starts at about Noon since we need time to decorate the building. 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 4.

6. Approximately how many people attend this show?
We usually have between 900 and 1500 customers attend.

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.
