Expo Building Booths
Free Non-Profit Booths
Expo Building Booths
There are a limited number of indoor booths available.
The booths are 10′ x 10′ and have power.
Chairs or tables are not provided in the booths.
The booth prices in the Expo Building are: $100
Only non-cooking booths are allowed in the Expo Building. Groups or businesses looking to serve pre-made cookies, bakery, bottled water, etc. would be allowed. Please notify the fair office prior to setting up your booth. No open flames, grills or cooking appliances are allowed in this area.
Free Expo Building Booths for Non-Profit Organizations
For several years, the Gogebic County Fair Board has awarded a Non-Profit Group/Organization with a Free Booth in the Exposition Building. Any group or organization interested in applying for the “Free Booth Program” must submit a letter to the fair board by April 27th, 2023.
The letters of application should state the intention of the group or organization, (re: fundraising, public awareness, etc), items you are planning to sell in your booth, and how receiving a booth at the Fair can benefit your group or organization.
Groups that have received a free booth in one calendar year are not eligible for a free booth in the following year, unless the non profit group/organization is the only one who applies for the booth in the next year.
The Gogebic County Fair Board will decide which non-profit will receive the booth and the group will be contacted shortly after.

Outdoor vendor spots are available with 110 and 220 power pedestals. Water is available for food trailers in certain locations on the grounds.
