Calling all Vendors!

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

  • Vendor Exclusivity - All vendors at the event are COMMERCIAL. There are no hobbiest tables 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. (See below for actual pricing)
  • Underserved Market - We have a great a couple great area Local Fish Stores, but very little for Reptile stores. Both hobby areas love to see the new things the event brings to the area!
  • Hobby Crossover - Many of our attendees cross over between the hobbies. Having both there draws in a diverse crowd with a wide range of interest and experience in each hobby. The event may be the final step to them aquiring a new hobby.
  • 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.
