Looking for a great way to connect with thousands of Purdue Fort Wayne Students?

Join us for the Go Local Vendor Fair 

Monday, August 20, 2018

9:00am - 11:30am

Purdue Fort Wayne Science Mall

Vendors will receive:

  • One table with two chairs (with enough space to pop-up a 10'x10' tent provided by the vendor)
  • Lunch for two representatives
  • Access to hundreds of Purdue Fort Wayne students!


$200 per table, one table per company limit

$100 per table for Purdue Fort Wayne Alumni-owned businesses

$50 per table for businesses who provide food

  • Registration is discounted to $50 if the business agrees to provide some type of substantial food item as a giveaway to approximately 500+ people (slice of pizza, smaller food/meal samples, granola bars, cupcakes, whole fruit, etc. Sorry, mints, fruit snacks, and bite sized candy don’t count). We anticipate well over 1,000 at this event.

$25 per table for community non-profit agencies

Proceeds from the event will help to support the Purdue Fort Wayne Go Local community engagement initiatives, including The Pantry @ Purdue Fort Wayne, The Big Event, Bottled Water Initiative, and many more projects.
