Participation in Family Fix-it Fest connects businesses directly with members of the community and signifies a strong commitment to help individuals and families make the best decision for their home.
At Family Fix-it Fest, we're turning the idea of a traditional trade show on it's head. Because it isn't just your basic trade-show/expo, this offers a tremendous opportunity to think outside the box and meet potential clients in a fun, laid-back environment where you can really showcase what you have to offer! The sky is the limit! Join us!

What's the difference between a Standard Table Space and a Premium Space?
With a standard table space (Silver and Gold), you get a space large enough for a banquet size table, so about 6 ft with a foot or so on either side of the table. Given that most vendors will want to provide their own tents and most pop-up tents are 10 ft, vendors in these areas will really be packed in closer together and farther away from where attendees will be entering the festival.
Platinum and Diamond level vendors get 10 x 10 spaces (with more room) and premium placement - more visible location in the fair, closer to where attendees will be entering. For a look at our preliminary site map, email us. However, until our line-up of vendors is finalized, this is subject to change.
The more premium levels (Platinum, Diamond, etc.) offer more opportunities for brand visibility and promotion like an ad in the printed program, branded recognition on all of our promotional materials, and Diamond exhibitors are included in our Sponsored Scavenger Hunt (which requires attendees to visit your space) and are extended the opportunity to give a presentation in our demo tent.
Is there a rain date?
Yes. It is scheduled for 5/25 in case of inclement weather.
Is this the first year?
Yes. We hope for it to be annual.
How many attendees do you expect?
This is our first year so we don’t have historical data to go on, but it will be heavily promoted and we’re expecting 500-2000 attendees.
What does it cost?
We offer a variety of levels of participation which include different things. They range from $200-2500. See the above grid for specific details.
How many vendors will there be?
Our goal is 50 total. Some of which will be artists and crafters in our seller marketplace. That being said, making sure we have a wide selection of different vendors among all the categories is important to us and we’ll only accept 2 max, in the same category.
What other companies have already signed up?
Spots are filling up fast and we are adding more everyday. Check out the Exhibitors & Sponsors section for a glimpse of some of the companies who are joining us.
Can I sell products and/or live plants?
Yes! You're welcome to use your exhibit space in whatever way you feel will most benefit you. If you are a nursery and wish to sell live plants, contact us about participating in our on-site Garden Center Marketplace.
Can I bring a vehicle/equipment to display?
YES! We welcome companies with interesting large vehicles or equipment to bring them for inclusion in our Touch-A-Truck experience.
Is there electricity?
Due to the nature of this outdoor venue, electricity is scarce. We ask that exhibitors who require electricity run power from their vehicles or use generators. Some exceptions may be made for particular circumstances. Email us to discuss if this is an issue for you.
Who is this benefitting?
This isn’t a benefit. It’s simply an event for the community. Everyone benefits!
