At least one week prior to the event, exhibitors will receive a full exhibitor info packet containing all relevant details to help them prepare for the event, however, here is some info to help better understand the setup:

  • Exhibitors will need to bring their own 10x10 tents, table(s), chair(s) and tent weights. Because this is an outdoor event, tent weights (one for each leg of the tent) are required. 
  • Each exhibitor will receive a single parking permit for the exhibitor/staff parking lot.
  • Load-in will take place between 8 AM and 11 AM on Saturday morning. Exhibitor vehicles will only be permitted on-site between 8 AM and 9 AM. During this time, exhibitors may drive up to their booths and drop-off their booth materials and products. Between 9 AM and 11 AM, exhibitors can park in the nearby exhibitor/staff parking lot and cart their booth materials and products to their booths. 
  • Load-out will take place between 5 PM and 7 PM. 
  • For makers exhibiting at both Taco Festival of Innovation 2018 and Cukui Festival 2018 (http://www.sanjosemade.com/cukui-festival-san-jose-2018), overnight security will be on-hand Saturday night into Sunday morning so you will be able to leave your booth in place at your own discretion.


For vendors whose applications are accepted but need to withdraw from the event: no refunds will be issued beyond May 6 at 11:59 PM PST. If you need to withdraw from the event, please notify us via email before then. No refunds will be issued due to poor weather conditions.
