The Festival of Faiths features booths that highlight the many faith-based and non-profit organizations that bring us together and strengthen our community.  Each exhibit sponsorship includes one table and two chairs. Exhibitors are encouraged to bring their own sunshade and any materials needed to staff their booth. Each booth space will accommodate a 10×10 pop up sunshade. Stakes can be used in our location this year.  Booth Fee: $125 before 8 August.  Early Bird Booth Fee: $100 before 20 July.

Action Zone:  At this year’s festival, we will have an area set aside to highlight organizations and programs that facilitate compassionate action, community support, youth engagement, etc. The requirement to be located in this area will be that the booth have something for participants to do to put the traditions and tenets of their faith into action to strengthen the fabric of our community. Some examples: Learning about an issue in the community and signing up to volunteer for a specific project (e.g. making an interfaith climate pledge), Participating in a service project (e.g. assembling Naloxone Kits for a harm reduction or comfort kits for clients in need). Kid-friendly projects are especially welcome. For example, helping start fall plants for your organization’s community garden, making cards for isolated people, participating in a collaborative art piece, or learning how to knit, crochet, or sew to support a special population (e.g. hats for NICU babies, cancer patients, or people without stable shelter).

Youth Engagement: A Youth Engagement space will be reserved in the action zone, where exhibitors, regardless of their location, can have volunteers lead short programs for young people and families. This is an opportunity for faith communities and nonprofits to highlight the work of their youth engagement teams with a 15- or 30-minute craft, storytelling session, game, or other activity.

Scout Stops: Girl Scouts of the USA and Scouts BSA recognize dozens of religious emblems offered by faith communities, including award pins and medals offered by most Christian denominations, Baha’i, Buddhist, Hindu, Islamic, Jain, Jewish, and Meher Baba faith traditions. Girl Scouts can also earn a My Promise, My Faith award pin at every level that is separate from national religious emblems. Congregations and organizations offering support to scouts working to earn religious or service insignia will be highlighted as Scout Stops.
