MONROE - Green County Cheese Days will be offering an area for commercial vendors to sell items or promote their businesses at tables or booths during the festival planned for Friday, Sept. 19 through Sunday, Sept. 21.

Booths are adjacent to the festival grounds, in the Monroe Library parking lot, and can be reserved for $175 per space or $100 per space for nonprofit organizations with proof of nonprofit status.

Booth size is about 12-feet wide by 10-feet deep. All booths are on asphalt with no electricity available. Booths will be available from 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 19 through 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 21. There are two time options for set-up - after 6 p.m. Friday or before 9 a.m. Saturday. No vendor vehicles can be on the lot after 9 a.m. Saturday. All materials must be removed by 7 p.m. Sunday.

Hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Vendors are responsible for their own tables, chairs, canopies/tents and weights. There is no drilling allowed.

Types of businesses and vendors that will be accepted include: independent distributors like Avon, Tupperware and Shaklee; flea market/resale; antique dealers; jewelry and accessories; service businesses like home improvements and insurance; and any business or organization wishing to promote their products or services. The following items are not allowed: no clothing promoting the festival, no hand-crafted items, no arts and crafts, no farmer's market items, and no garden produce.
