What’s new for this year’s application process: The booth fees are tiered, so apply early for lower booth fees. The payment of the booth fee is now required in full, simplifying the process for everyone. Lastly, in 2022, the weather was a bit chilly, in 2023 a bit hot, this year, we are looking for the weather to be “just right” in the Goldilocks zone.
