Food: Hospitality area for exhibitors will be available. A Concession area will be available on the north end of Percefull Fieldhouse on Saturday, and Food Trucks will be outside on the south side of the building all three days. Our “gourmet food booth” of special baked items will be available until sold out in Percefull Fieldhouse.
Festival Photography: We'll be taking photos and videos at the festival of the competition as well as those browsing the area, so you may be in them. Your attendance grants your permission to be included in these images, which we may use for promotional purposes on the web or in print.
Opportunity to Showcase Your Work: We're asking all those who enter the Sugar Show to consider donating to our Gourmet Food Booth something related to your contest entries-- whether that's cake, cookies and/or cupcakes. These items will help us raise funds for the festival and other activities. You may put your business card/contact info on your items at this booth for patrons to know who to contact to order from you!
