- FREE Public WiFi will be available during the event. (Special note: the WiFi tends to be slow when there is a lot of usage)
- The purpose of a raffle is to attract Jubilee patrons to the Ecotourism Expo, along with the popcorn smell, LOL! People love raffles so the more vendors that can host a raffle at their booth the better. Please encourage everyone (no age restrictions), to participate in your raffle. In the years past, I was able to collect the prizes and conduct the raffle but I have found that I'm not able to be at my booth and promote the raffle at the same time so I'm relying on each individual booth to do their own raffle.
- We ask that you do not breakdown your booth until 4:45 pm.
