Last year 26,525 people attended the Benton County Fair & Rodeo - Be here for them in 2019!
Vendors - We’ve made some significant changes to the Commercial Building starting with the name— it’s now the FUNPORIUM! We’ve ordered banners for outside that will direct Fairgoers inside for Gaming, Stage & Shopping! Inside the FUNPORIUM the corners are anchored with a Storytelling Stage, Puzzlemania, First Force Robotics, our own Retro-Gaming Area, and Parent Relief space. The other exciting change for inside is that we are MIXING IT UP this year—No more placement by categories—so when you choose your space, give us your top three picks.
We added additional spaces outside in two more locations. One we feel will be particularly interesting to families with younger children—back behind the Oak Grove, we’re ‘building’ a WILD WEST TOWN where Sterling the Bubblesmith and a kids interactive area will be sure to bring joy—happy folks make happy shopping! You’ll need your own canopy in this area.
The other additional outdoor spaces are under a 20’x20’ tent top that we’re hoisting next to the Live Stingray Encounter. These outside spaces include the canopy and are limited to four vendors looking to be in the center of things.
Returning vendors from last year will get first choice through May 1ST. All applications will be time and date stamped with the receipt from your $100 down payment sent in with your application.
