Reserve a Table


Dealers, the Show opens up for set-up on Friday between 2:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. before the weekend of the Show.  The check-in door is at the rear of the building and we will have a table set up to check in each dealer and give out dealer pins.  As part of the check-in procedure, you will need to pay all table and space rents, sign the contract, and provide us with an executed Minnesota Department of Revenue Operator Certificate of Compliance if you do not already have one on file.  We will advise you in advance if you already have a Certificate of Compliance on file.

The rear door and east side door is used for unloading and the front door and west doors cannot be used for that.

At the end of the Show, all doors may be used for breaking down and loading.

2019 Tax Info & Form


I have enclosed the Minnesota Department of Revenue Operator’s Certificate, which is required to be filled out and provided to us before you enter the Show.  It does not have to be done each Show and this form is kept in our records and is not sent to the State of Minnesota.  In 36 years of operating the Show, we have had one sales tax audit.  The State requires us to have an Operator’s Certificate signed by you or a sales tax number in our possession for each Show.    We do not send them to the State.

Please fill out the form.  If in the form you are required to have a state tax identification number (because in some instances you are not required), please obtain that number before coming to the Show.  You can call the State Department of Revenue at (651) 282-5225 or you can go to their website at  If you have any questions, I cannot give you any information on how to fill out the form, please contact the State.
