Upon arrival, you will be given a packet of information and will be directed to your exhibit space. You may drive to your space to unload, but please be considerate of others. There are many convenient areas within the grounds where you may leave your vehicle during set up, but all vehicles must be off the grounds and set up must be completed by 9:45 a.m. Designated exhibitor parking during the show can be located on Glasstown Rd. in the DWK Life Sciences parking lot.

Breakdown may not begin until 5 p.m. unless special arrangements have been made. No vehicles will be permitted to return to the grounds between 10 am and 5 pm or until visitors have exited.  If you have animals that need to be returned to a shelter before 5 pm, please notify us beforehand.  You will be required to walk the dogs from the show and have someone man your booth until 5 pm.

Booth areas will be pre-assigned.  Location requests will be honored to the best of our ability on a first come, first serve basis.  Booth sizes are assumed to be 12 ft wide X 10 ft deep. Please inform us if you need additional space. We can easily adjust if we know your needs in advance.

Demonstrations and Demonstrator Booths: Special areas will be reserved for demonstrations.  Please indicate your needs on the registration form. Additional arrangements will be made on an individual basis for times, etc.

Exhibitors may NOT FEED ANY ANIMALS. Treat giveaways and sales are permitted, provided they are properly packaged.

Since the show is held rain or shine, please bring a canopy or tent for your booth if possible. Most exhibit areas are located on wooded grounds, so you should be prepared to adjust to any uneven surfaces. All canopies must be properly staked or weighted down.

All booths must be self-contained and set up within the space allotted. Please be prepared to provide and set up your own equipment. WheatonArts does not provide chairs or tables for your booth. If you need tables, you may rent them from WheatonArts for $12.00 each (8 fts only). Tables will not be available unless you have ordered them in advance on your application. You are responsible for all exhibit materials and supplies. All unsightly packaging and storage should be hidden out of sight. 


Electrical service will be provided only if requested on the Exhibitor Registration form and is available in a limited amount of spaces.  If you have requested and paid for electric, bring with you a heavy duty outdoor extension cord at least 20 ft. long.


Collaboration: Up to two exhibitors may share one outdoor space at outdoor events except the Festival of Fine Craft. Shared space is not encouraged, as the applying exhibitor is responsible for all payment and communication. Exhibitors wishing to share a booth but be listed as separate organizations must notify the show coordinator upon applying.

NJ Sales Tax: All retail exhibitors are responsible for collecting and reporting New Jersey Sales Tax of 6.625%.  Please have your tax information on hand as you may be asked by a state official to present it at the show.

Exhibitor Parking: Please park your vehicle in the designated lot. We ask that you do not park in the main circle or in the employee lot, in order to allow parking space for our visitors and staff.
