Can our civic group participate without being a sponsor or vendor?
If there is a need from another group for volunteers there could be a partnership created, but in order for the event to be successful and sustainable we’re asking that everyone who participates either fund or provide in-kind services to the event. It’s fair to all and ensures low costs and free activities for the future. Vendor/participant fees are $100* per organization. Members of the NIFG booths are free.
