Learn How to Participate as an Exhibitor

Our 23rd annual Bark in the Park will be here before you know it, September 8, 2019!  "Bark" is the Peoria Humane Society's biggest event of the year - to raise money and awareness to benefit the animals of our community.  We hope you'll want to participate in this event as an exhibitor.


Attended by hundreds of people, the Bark is a great opportunity to showcase your pet-related products and services.  Participating organizations must be pet-related or offer pet-related products/services, unless a sponsorship is purchased. 


The Bark will be held at Festival Park on the Peoria Riverfront, from 11:00am - 3:00pm on Sunday, September 8.  Booths must be set up by 10:30am and remain set up throughout the duration of the event.  Booth space is approximately 10X10.  Each organization will be responsible for providing their own tables, chairs, tents, etc. Volunteers will be available to assist with set up and teardown if needed. There will NOT be electrical hook-ups available. Food vendors will be present throughout the event.


Exhibitors may sell merchandise at their booths. You may promote your business by giving out samples, brochures, coupons, demonstrations, etc. Shelters and adoption organizations may bring animals available for adoption. 


Exhibitor fee for a non-profit is $50, the fee for a business is $100, and if you are a sponsor at or above the $500 level, there is no additional charge to you for a booth. 


We hope you'll want to be a part of this fantastic event! Please contact Patti Schaffner at 309-682-9015 or if you are interested in becoming an exhibitor.
