2022 Festival Exhibitor Registration

This form is for local businesses, nonprofit organizations, and community groups that wish to purchase an exhibitor booth(s) for the 2022 Festival of Books & Authors to be held on Saturday, September 24, 2022. 

Food trucks and food vendors need to register here.


Exhibitor booths will be arranged along Poplar Street, Spruce Street, and Holly Avenue in downtown Winston-Salem. We are unable to accomodate special requests pertaining to booth location. Your exhibitor status is not confirmed until your payment is received by Bookmarks. Exhibitor booths are first-come, first-served and are available to purchase while supplies and areas last.  Please note that all space in the children's area has been reserved; applications received after June 9 for children's authors and exhibitors may not be approved depending on space.

Vendors must bring their own signage, table covers, display materials, etc. The price of each full size exhibitor booth includes:

  • One 10x10' tent (or equivalent space within a larger tent). Exhibitors are not permitted to bring their own tent
  • Two 6' tables 
  • Two folding chairs

Bookmarks is unable to provide electricity and internet access to exhibitors. Please plan accordingly. Generators must be pre-approved by Bookmarks to be used at the Festival site.

Half Booths

If you want to purchase a half booth space, you may choose to find an exhibitor who will share the space with you or Bookmarks will match you with another vendor. Half booth participants will each have use of one 6' folding table and one folding chair. If you would like to share a booth with a specific exhibitor, you must purchase a full booth below and include both applicants' names and application information in your registration. Separate applicant names by commas. Only names included in the registration form will be including in Bookmarks' Festival marketing materials.

Multiple Booths

Organizations/businesses that require additional space may purchase two exhibitor booths. If one organization/business purchases two booths, they will be located side-by-side.

Children's Exhibitors

Vendors purchasing booth space for exhibits related to children/families and children's literature will be assigned a booth within the children's area of the Festival. We strongly recommend planning an activity for children to do while visiting your booth--we have found this increases food traffic throughout the Festival day. Please note that all space in the children's area has been reserved; applications received after June 9 for children's authors and exhibitors may not be approved depending on space.

Rain or Shine

This is a rain or shine event which takes place outdoors.

COVID-19

All vendors and exhibitors must comply with applicable public health ordinaces, laws or mandates. Bookmarks is not responsible for the complicance with such ordinances, laws or mandates by Festival attendees.
