Event details

Small Business Booths: Businesses with 2 employees or less are eligible to purchase Small Business Booths, but are not required to do so. 
Sampling and Selling: This is a sampling AND selling event. Our attendees come prepared to purchase, and they purchase a LOT.
Booth assignments: Booths (both Standard and Small Business) are assigned only after payment and all paperwork have been received, with location priority given to early bookings. If you can access the registration form on this page, booths are still available.
COI: a certificate of insurance naming Gluten-Free New England as additional insured is required to participate. COI’s may be uploaded to this link. Check your insurance renewal date to be sure that it will be current for the day of the event. Expired COI’s cannot be accepted.
Temporary Food Permits: all exhibitors sampling food must purchase a temporary food permit and follow all protocols from the city of Danbury and/or the town of Danvers, MA. Links to both health departments will be in your confirmation letter after registration is complete.
