Vendor Registration

Tele Vue

Country Simple!

Like last year, we're going to keep vendor registration country simple.  Also like last year, we wish to keep our event astronomy or science related.  If your business or exhibit has a astronomy or science connection, then we invite you to attend.  All sites are $100.00.  You provide all of your necessities, tents, tables, chairs, etc.  Sites will have access to electricity as well as parking directly behind your site.  We also will have a professional security service Friday and Saturday evening and overnight.  That's it.  Country Simple.  You can fill out a registration form below and mail it in with a check made out to SDAA, or use the PayPal link below.  We don't have a deadline for submitting applications but you may want to do it as soon as possible as there are a limited number of available spaces.
