For Our Vendors:


Vendors are required to register all their workers but are not required to pay a registration fee other than the space fee. Each 10 X 10 vendor space costs $200 and includes two adults: the registrant and a First Mate. For each additional space rented, two additional crew are included. Children under 18 are free but must be registered so a badge can be produced.

  • Vendors are not required to pay a registration fee unless they wish to also have a boat display.
