Gymnastics on the Grand is a juried vendor event. Priority will be given to gymnastics merchandise retailers, products that appeal to expected attendees, and services related to gymnastics. No food vendors are allowed. Applications will be reviewed by the vendor committee and accepted on a first come, first served basis at the sole discretion of the committee.
No deposits will be required or accepted until after an application is approved. Accepted vendors will be notified on a rolling basis as applications are received, but no later than November 1. If accepted, your full deposit, including optional items, must be received by November 2 to confirm your attendance.
10’ x 10’ booth space may not be sublet or shared. However, you may request more than one booth.
Cost of each booth is a tax-deductible donation of 20% of total sales generated during the 3-day event to Grand Rapids Gymnastics Booster Club; payable at end the end of event or not later than December 31.
A $200 non-refundable deposit is required for each 10' x 10' space. Deposits are applied as a credit against donation (see **below for exception).
Setup and Teardown
Load in and set up is Thursday, December 1 from 6:30pm – 8:30pm. Tear down is Sunday, December 4 after 8:00pm.
Booths must be attended at a minimum from 8am to 8pm each day. However, many sessions start earlier than that so you are welcome to start as early as 7am. Refer to the Meet Schedule for the competition schedule which will be posted in early November. Vendors tearing down and leaving prior to 8pm on Sunday evening will forfeit their deposit** (it will not be applied as a credit against the 20% of sales donation amount and will be considered an additional donation to Gymnastics on the Grand).
