Calling all Vendors!

You may ask yourself, why would you want to come to a Fargo event? Well we have outlined some of the characteristics of our event that may catch yout attention.

  • Vendor Exclusivity - All vendors at the event are COMMERCIAL. Hobbiest tables are kept to a minimum at this event to make sure vendors are able to provide the best livestock and products available.
  • Cost Effective - The table prices are kept as inexpensive as possible to make sure we are able to bring in the best vendors. Tables are priced to break even on the event costs, not to make a profit on the Vendors. (See below for actual pricing)
  • Underserved Market - We have a some great local and regional businesses supporting the hobbies and keeping of exotics. With the growing market there are always people looking for something special that they cannot get locally.
  • Brand Exposure - All involved will be featured on the website, advertising and social networking. Vendors will be featured also in press releases and may even be featured in LIVE news shots!
  • Hobby Crossover - Many of our attendees cross over between the hobbies. The event draws in a diverse crowd with a wide range of interest and experience. We hope The event may be the final step to them acquiring new interest and keeping of exotic critters.
  • Charitable Contributions - Profits from the event are donated to charitable organizations related to the hobbies to help protect and benefit the hobbies we love.
  • Kid Zone! - We all love to see the children and their enthusiasm toward the hobbies. We have gone the extra step and created a place just for the children where they can safely play, color, etc while the parents check out the rest of the event.
