Exhibitor Info for the 2016 Natchitoches Fishing Expo

On Saturday, March 5th, the Cane Country Fly Casters will be hosting the 3rd biennial Natchitoches Fishing Expo at the Events Center in Natchitoches, Louisiana. Time is 8:30am to 5:00pm.  This event will be of interest to all anglers, including fresh and salt water, fly rodders and conventional bait casting and spinning tackle, and anyone who has an interest in fishing.

Our last event in 2014 in Natchitoches was a great success with over 1000 in attendance.  We are expecting even more for 2016.

The admission for this event is FREE.  We do this to help build interest in both fishing and in the community businesses that support this event.  In order for us to do this, we depend on a raffle and silent auction held at the event, as well as our vendors paying a very nominal fee to display their goods and services.

For retailers, vendors, exhibitors, agencies, or anyone else interested in participating, we would like to extend an invitation to be part of this great event.   There will be a charge of $25 per commercial vendor.  We also ask that you make a donation for the raffles and/or silent auctions.  We request that donated items be turned in at check in.  There is no charge for non-profit entities.

No one will have a booth reserved until we receive your booth payment.  Sorry but the demand is often greater than the supply of space so we can't risk leaving someone out.

Each vendor will be assigned a space and we will provide chairs and one 8 ft. long rectangular table.  If additional tables are needed you need to bring your own.  We need to know how many tables you will be using to determine appropriate space for all participants.  If additional tables, extension cords, and power strips are needed please provide your own.

Setup

The Events Center will be open Friday afternoon, March 4 for vendors to set up their booths.  It will also open at 6:30 on Saturday morning for vendors and fly tiers to set up.
