THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT OUR FESTIVAL

 

OUR VENUE –The Washington State Fair Events Center, Puyallup, WA The three largest indoor exhibit areas at the Washington State Fair Events Center are transformed into turn of the century Victorian villages with hundreds of merchants in Victorian attire presenting their unique gifts and hand crafted items. Interspersed among the shops are indoor courtyards covered in emerald green carpet illuminated by Victorian lampposts adorned with garland and Christmas decorations. Christmas music fills the air and the feeling is magical!

Pavilion Main Floor features strolling musicians, along with Gigi’s Café and a festival Information Booth. There are 98 10’ x 10’ Victorian exhibit booths to explore. The booths in this building have green curtains along the sides and across the back of each booth.

Expo Hall is located right near the bustling Gold Gate entrance. Shoppers can visit and have a photo taken with Santa, enjoy a tasty snack from Gigi’s Café and visit 93 elegant 10’ x 10’ Victorian stores. The exhibit booths in this building will feature white curtains along the sides and across the back of each booth. Special Offer for vendors with Hand Crafted items: Vendors in the Expo Hall who create and sell at least 85% of the products in their booth can qualify for a $190 booth fee discount. Simply request the contract addendum to apply. Two handcrafters can also share a 10 x 10 space for $400 each.

ShowPlex, the newest and largest building at the fairgrounds, is home to the Holiday Jubilee Theater which seats over 1000 and features professional stage shows playing throughout each day, along with the beautiful Singing Nativity presented each evening. There are over three hundred 10’ x 10’ booths with green curtain along the sides and across the back, plus a few 6’ x 10’ spaces which are completely open in front (no Victorian store fronts) with 3’ high curtain along the sides and 8’ high curtain across the back. ShowPlex also includes the Winter Wine Garden and the Festival of Foods, a food court with a wide variety of dining options and an extensive seating area.

FREE PARKING—Parking at some venues can be challenging and expensive. For our event, we pay for the cost of the parking throughout all five days of the show so that parking is free for both our guests and every merchant.

PROFESSIONAL ENTERTAINMENT is one of things that makes A Victorian Country Christmas so special. In addition to strolling musicians, we feature a variety of professional stage shows each year filled with wonderful music, comedy, dance and dazzling costumes. Our Singing Nativity (presented once each evening and twice on Saturday) is a grand musical presentation of the Christmas story with singers in beautiful Victorian attire. All Shows and events are free with admission.

ADVERTISING
LP Productions has an extensive advertising budget to attract shoppers to A Victorian Country Christmas. We utilize television, radio, newspapers and discount coupons, plus excellent “word of mouth” based on the reputation built over the past 20+ years.

GUIDELINES FOR ACCEPTANCE
All products are juried prior to acceptance into the show. Samples, photos or web site links must be provided so we can evaluate whether the products are a good fit for our show. Some product lines are closed early due to product saturation. We want everyone to have an opportunity to achieve their best sales.

VICTORIAN STORE FRONTS One of the things that gives our festival a very unique look is the Victorian store fronts we set up for each 10’ x 10’ booth. The storefronts have a header that goes across the top of the booth. Each header is 10’ wide and approximately 3’ high. These headers are supported by 16” posts, and we place one post under each header seam which results in an opening of approximately 8’ 8”. There are many different styles and colors. (Some examples are shown in the illustration below.) The store fronts are set up so that all the different styles and colors are dispersed throughout each exhibit area; specific requests for certain styles or colors cannot be accepted. The back and side walls are curtains draped from metal poles and cross braces.
