There is no right way or wrong way to represent your chosen or native nationality exhibit.Whether you choose to use personal artifacts or literature from the country’s tourism department, we hope that you will enjoy putting together a fun and representative portrayal of the country. While nationality tables are FREE for anyone who wants to share, we ask that only a country be promoted and that the exhibit not be used in any promote an organization or for sales. For this please see vendor displays below.

Vendor exhibits are a crucial component of the International Spring Festival. Whether you are interested in sales, awareness of your company’s services, or promote a non-profit that does good in our local or global community, the exhibits section of International Spring festival brings a high volume of residents and visitors every year.

We will give you an early registration DISCOUNT if you sign-up on or before March 31, 2023 for Vendor tables at $60 for companies and $40 for non-profit organizations.

By request, we can pair a vendor table with a nationality table. Please register for both and indicate the pairing in the “notes and comments” section of both registrations.
