Cape May County 4-H Fair planners are offering a variety of opportunities for vendors to participate at this year’s 4-H Fair scheduled for July 21, 22 and 23. Pam Gaskill, 4-H Fair Vendor Chair is pleased to announce that, again this year, a vendor can participate one day or all three days depending on their schedule and their budget. Applications are available for exhibit space at the Cape May County 4-H Fair for commercial concessions, non-profit fundraisers or educational displays. The 4-H Fair Committee is seeking vendors who offer family friendly, quality crafts and products to feature on the 16 acres of tree-canopied fairgrounds. The 4-H fairgrounds are located at 355 Court House – S. Dennis Road in Cape May Court House, New Jersey.
The annual event is a county tradition that offers quality family entertainment, live music, a nightly Chicken BBQ, and much more. Vendors are encouraged to become part of the 4-H County Fair tradition. Gaskill said, “ We offer a great opportunity for new vendors to experience a high quality county fair with three-day affordable commercial vendor fees that include basic electricity and start at $130.” “Also, if you can only attend on Saturday, July 23, 2016, a one-day vendor permit is available for just $75,” added Gaskill.
