Booth Spaces

Indoor spaces in sanctuary 4x6 (4 feet deep x 6 feet wide) cost $64, recommended for readers, or others using only card-table space (must bring own table). Corner space #15's 6-foot wide frontage is on the side aisle along the stage.

Indoor spaces in sanctuary 6x8 (6 feet deep by 8 feet wide) for $80. (note: space #5 is next to the piano)

Outdoor spaces on middle or back patio 6x8 (6 feet deep by 8 feet wide) for $80.

Outdoor spaces on grass 10x10 (requires your own canopy) for $80.

Note: Lectures are now held in the fireside room (house/classroom), located between the courtyard sidewalk (aka middle patio) and the back patio. See below for info on lecturing at the Fair.

Note: if you have rented a double space from us before, especially in the house/classroom, please consider a single 6x8 space this year.



Accessories

Free, undraped 6 foot tables are available while supplies last. You can also rent a table from us for $12 extra. Plastic chairs will be available free; limited to 2 per space.

You may order electricity for your space for $10.

Some outdoor spaces (especially those numbered in the 50s and 80s) will need shade, and you can rent an umbrella from us for $35 if you don't have covering for an 8x6 space. Spaces (10x10) on the front and back yard lawns require that the exhibitor bring and set up a 10x10 canopy.

Umbrellas and tables must be paid for by Wednesday Sept.20, 2017, 5 PM. Also, no cancellations of umbrella or table orders after that time can be accepted.

We are also setting up a canopy for spaces 84 and 85. These spaces therefore cost $20 extra. The canopy also covers half of space 86 at no extra charge.

If you already have a canopy, most canopies are too large for most of our spaces, so you are encouraged to choose 10x10 spaces on the grass (where it says "grass" on the floorplan) at no extra charge. These include spaces numbered 60-68, 88, 89, 90.

We can also accomodote a 10x10 canopy in spaces #81, 83 amd 98 (though these are 8x6 spaces, and your exhibit must stay within that size), and in space #49 on concrete behind the sanctuary/lecture hall, next to the parking lot (beyond spaces #47 & 48). You can set up a canopy for space 57 with permission of the exhibitors next door in #58. Consult the producer.

There is room at all these spaces for 10x10 canopies at no extra charge. If you use a 10x10 canopy in an 8x6 space (spaces 57, 81, 83, 98), you can only use the 8x6 space for your exhibit. This is to allow room enough for aisles and visibility for all near-by exhibitors and their customers. Consult with the producer about where to put the canopy poles.


Notes on fees

Note that all fees cover both days. Please send check payable to Holistic Arts Fair with signed application, and the full fee, to Holistic Arts Fair, 3914 Leigh Ave., San Jose CA 95124. You can also pay using paypal, using producer's email: eric@philosopherswheel.com. Please add $2 ($3 for more than $80) to cover pay pal costs. You must still send the signed and completed application by mail, or scan and send it by email.

Exhibitors will be asked if they wish to contribute an item(s) or services to the Silent Auction for the benefit of Community of Infinite Spirit. This is optional, but may help to promote your exhibit.

Check updates below to see the latest info on which spaces are available.



Advisories!

I have had some requests to visit the venue in person before renting a booth space for the Fair. I am not located at the venue site, and I don't have an office there. You need to arrange with the minister or her assistant at Community of Infinite Spirit to tour the venue site. The floorplan should probably be sufficient, however, to plan your exhibit and see the location of the spaces available as listed below.

On Sept.22-24, you can reach me on those days only in person at Community of Infinite Spirit (see "contact us"), or leave a message at my office number listed on your application or brochure.


Updates

If it says "tent." or "tentative" for a space, I'm not sure we can promise that # space at this time. A waiting list may be made. Remember, your final booth space location is made at the discretion of the producer, and there are no guarantees for particular spaces, although we do make reservations. Generally it is first come first serve, but long-time exhibitors may get a preference too. If you cannot accept a second choice of location, don't apply.

Umbrellas: you can rent one from us for $35, or bring your own. I rent the use of our canopy for spaces 84-85 only for $20 extra. You can also bring your own canopy for the spaces indicated above. Umbrellas are recommended for spaces 55-57, 81 and 82.

We prefer to offer spaces for both days, rather than having to seek another exhibitor for a particular space for one specific day. Therefore, we do not reserve specific locations for one day. One day assignments will be made on a last-minute, space-available basis.

Floorplan


Lecture time available for exhibitors

If interested, describe on a separate page or in your email what you would present. No fees are paid; but no percentage is taken from any sales you make. No sales pitch, or religious or political propaganda is allowed; topics of general interest only. Time slots are 50 minutes, or sometimes 25 minutes.

Time scheduling is up to the discretion of the producer. See the latest schedule on the main website (if it says "tba" then those timeslots may be available).

Note that our lecture space will be smaller than before 2012; in the house/classroom, but still large enough to accomodate the attendance we expect. We will have a small speaker system and microphone, to be used at moderate volume. home page
