The information on this page will help guide you in preparation
for the Los Angeles Printers Fair on October 1, 2016 from 10 am to 5 pm.
ADMISSION to the Fair for the public is $10 per adult and $5 for 12 years and under and it will take place rain or shine (hopefully no rain and a nice 75 degrees). Parking for the public will be across the street in the K-Mart parking lot.

VENDOR SETUP for the Fair will be from 8 am on the morning of the Fair, October 1st, and goes until the Fair starts at 10 am. The entrance to the Museum’s parking lot will be open during those 2 hours; VEHICLES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO REMAIN IN THE PARKING LOT after your items have been unloaded. It is suggested that you bring some kind of roller cart to help you with unloading and loading of your items since you will not be able to park your vehicle right next to your booth. Vendors purchasing booths inside the Museum (Section A) are invited to pre-setup on Friday from 12 pm to 5 pm. The Museum will be locked and your merchandise should be well protected.

TEAR-DOWN will commence at 5 pm when the Fair is over and vehicles will be allowed on the Museum’s parking lot at that time.

ALL TRANSACTIONS must be handled directly at your booth. The Museum does not offer services, such as cash or credit card access, to the vendors. Internet availability is going to be limited so plan accordingly.

Your Vendor Fee of $120 includes:

  • One six foot table with two chairs in a 6′ x 6′ area
  • Two Exhibitor badges
  • Two extra Fair Admission tickets
  • Vendor listing in the Fair’s Show Guide

NOTE: There are a few special tables within the A Section that are larger than the typical table. Their cost is $175 and consist of a 10 foot table along with two chairs.

NOTE: Areas in the Swap Meet section are $65. Vendors must supply their own tent, table, and chairs. Your space consists of 8′ x 8′. The rest of the items are included with your fee.

There are a lot of things that you need to do to become a vendor at this exciting event but rest assured that the instructions are as easy as ONE, TWO, THREE.

ONE . . . decide on one booth, two booths, three booths or however many you might need.
