Booth Content Restrictions:  Pennington Day is a family-friendly, community event.  Pennington Day reserves the right to deny registration to any vendor exhibit that is deemed, in its sole discretion, to be dangerous, offensive, lewd, or otherwise not conducive to a family-friendly environment.

Booth Location: You will be notified of your booth location by e-mail 3 days before Pennington Day. The Booth Chair will try to accommodate requests for specific locations. However, there are a large number of booths and a limited number of spaces in each area.  Placement in a requested area cannot be guaranteed.

Electricity Availability: Pennington Day is not able to provide electricity to booth spaces. If your set-up requires a generator, please inform us so that your booth can be placed appropriately in consideration of neighboring booths.
