Grays Harbor County Fair Vendor Information
Thank you for your interest in a commercial vendor, exhibitor, or concession booth at the 2017 Grays Harbor County Fair, scheduled for August 9-13, 2017. We’ve, again, planned an exciting 5 days of fun and non-stop entertainment, rides, food, exhibits and more. In 2016, our Fair experienced attendance of over 62,000 fairgoers. We are working hard toward the goal of having even greater success in 2017. We are especially excited about the entertainment line-up for this year’s Fair.
If you are interested in being a vendor at this year's Fair, please complete the vendor application and return it to us as soon as possible. Be sure to include photos of your booth and information regarding your product(s) and/or service(s). All submission material becomes the property of the Grays Harbor County Fair and will not be returned.
All applications go through a selection process. Applicants are not decided on a first come, first served basis. However, returning vendors are given special consideration. Applications are reviewed and selections are offered based on the following criteria:
*Product balance within Fairgrounds
*Uniqueness and appeal of product
*Attractiveness of display
Location is determined by Fair Management. Large exhibits and activities may be designated to specific areas as determined by the Fair Management. The Grays Harbor County Fair does not offer exclusivity of product to any vendor.
