Festival Exhibitor Registration
This form is for independently published authors, local businesses, nonprofit organizations, and community groups that wish to purchase an exhibitor booth(s) for the street festival portion of the 2019 Festival of Books & Authors, to be held on Saturday, September 7, 2019.
Food trucks and other food vendors, please click here.
Exhibitor booths will be arranged along Poplar St., Spruce St., and Holly Ave. in downtown Winston-Salem. We are unable to accomodate special requests pertaining to booth location.
Please note that your Exhibitor status is not confirmed until your payment is received by Bookmarks. Exhibitor booths are first-come, first-served and are available for purchase while supplies last.
As long as all information and payment is received by May 31, 2019, all exhibitors' names will be listed on the website and in the festival program as exhibitors.
As of May 31, prices have increased to the following:
- 1 Exhibitor Booth - $400
- 1 Nonprofit Exhibitor Booth - $325
- 1/2 Exhibitor Booth - $275
- 1/2 Nonprofit Exhibitor Booth - $215
The price of each exhibitor booth includes:
- One 10' x 10' tent (exhibitors are not permitted to bring their own tent unless prior authorization is received from Bookmarks)
- Two 8' tables
- Two folding chairs
Vendors must provide their own signage, display materials, table covers, etc.
If you wish 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 8' folding table and one folding chair. In order to determine who you wish to share a booth with, you must include both applicants' names and information in your application, separated by commas, and proceed below with a full booth purchase. Only names included in the registration form will be included in Bookmarks' marketing materials.
Organizations/businesses that require additional space may purchase two exhibitor booths. If one organization/business purchases two booths, they will be side-by-side.
Electricity & WiFi
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.
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 recommend planning an activity for children to do while visiting your booth—we have found that this increases traffic throughout the festival day.
