Booths should introduce aspects of Japanese culture and/or promote Japan-U.S. relations.
The event will be held from 11 am to 6 pm. Each booth will have approximately 10 ft x 10 ft space. If you need more than 10 ft x 10 ft, please apply for 2 booths or more according to your needs. You have a choice of renting a tent (or tents) or not using tent at all, but you are not allowed to bring your own tents. Please see below for details. Rates for booths vary depending on the choice of selling goods (a “vendor”) at the event and the choice of renting a tent. Please choose the appropriate option.
You can also rent tables ($15 each, 8 ft x 2.5 ft) and chairs ($3 each). Details about booth set-up, take-down, and deposits will be sent at a later date after your application has been fully processed and approved. **Please note: Food booth applicants must submit an “Application for Food Booth.” Vendor booth applicants must apply for vendor booth status on the application below. Neither food booth applicants nor vendor booth applicants can register for a regular non-vendor booth. Please note that if the content of your booth is not related to the core of the event or inappropriate whatsoever, we might reject the application. Thank you for your understanding.
