The Cape May County 4-H Fair Foundation is seeking vendors for the 2018 4-H Fair. There are a variety of ways for vendors to participate at this year’s 4-H Fair scheduled for July 19, 20 and 21. Pam Gaskill, 4-H Fair Vendor Chair, said, “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 and food 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-shaded fairgrounds,” added Gaskill. 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 family entertainment, live music, a nightly Chicken BBQ, and much more. Vendors are encouraged to become part of the 4-H County Fair tradition. The 4-H Fair is a great opportunity for new vendors to experience a quality county fair with three-day affordable commercial vendor fees that include basic electricity and start at $130. If you can only attend on Saturday, July 21, a one-day vendor permit is available for just $75.
New this year, separate food concession contracts are available for vendors who sell just one item and for those who offer a variety of fair foods.
The public hours for the 2018 Cape May County 4-H Fair are noon to 9 p.m. on Thursday, July 19 and Friday, July 20 and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, July 21. The 4-H fairgrounds offer convenient access from the Garden State Parkway and all major highways with easy loading and unloading.
