Bench Show Vendors

Does your business relate to any of the categories above? Do you just want to be displayed in front of heavy foot traffic? This is the perfect time to get involved with the Agra Fair.

If you are interested in being a Vendor during the Bench Show you can still sign up. During the bench show while all the items are being displayed for the public to view we are also filling the building with local vendors. 

All the information about being a vendor can be found here, while the application for your spot is here.
