Over the years, the Gogebic County Fair has been a place for businesses and organizations to showcase their products or promote their efforts. It's a fantastic venue to get your products or group in front of approximately 6,000 people in the four days of the fair.
The letters of application should state the intention of the group or organization, (re: fundraising, public awareness, etc) Items you are planning to sell in your booth, and how receiving a booth at the fair can benefit your group or organization.
Groups that have received a free booth in one calendar year are not eligible for a free booth in the following year, unless the non profit group/organization is the only one who applies for the booth in the next year.
The Gogebic County Fair Board will decide which non-profit will receive the booth and the group will be contacted shortly after.
Outdoor vendor spots are available with 110 and 220 power pedestals. Water is available for food trailers in certain locations on the grounds.
Outdoor booths costs for the four day of the fair are as follows:
~ Non-profit organization: $150.00*
(Non profits selling food items must pay the vendor fee
associated with their in/out of county status.)
~ In-County Booths: $250.00
~ Out of County business: $350.00
~ Beer booths: $725.00
For several years, the Gogebic County Fair Board has awarded a Non-Profit Group/Organization with a Free Booth in the Exposition Building. Any group or organization interested in applying for the "Free Booth Program" must submit a letter to the fair board by May 1st of the given year.
