Vendor and Author Applications

May 31, 2022

Gang, this is big. Last year, we had around 28 vendors and thought we were a packed house. This year, we're looking at over 100 vendors!

For the time being, we've shut the application down. For those that submitted, we reviewed who applied and sent invoices accordingly. Please keep an eye out from a Paypal statement from "Off The Wall Party Planning" if you haven't seen it come by yet. It's clearly marked that it's for the FrightReads Tables.

For right now, we're fine tuning the floor plan and working to ensure everyone gets a space. We're planning the space for the stage, as well as quite a lot of tables! Not to mention we need to give a good chunk of space to Art Way Alliance, as they bring "Ready, Set, Draw!" back to the event!

Tickets are still on sale! VIP Bags are limited, and getting pretty low! don't miss out!

Guests and more!

April 11, 2022

We've been pretty bad at updating the website news, we'll admit. We've been adding to the vendors and guests page like crazy though!

We still have a bunch of vendor spots available, but it doesn't mean they'll last forever! For signup, visit out "Vendor Application" listed above.

Beyond that, we thank you for your interest in FrightReads, and helping us become a great event! We're already in talks for a bigger year three! With the help of our wonderful sponsors, especially Caprichos Books, we've managed to do so much in our second year!

Keep an eye on our Facebook or Instagram page for updates to vendors and guests! Don't forget to grab your tickets at the link above! We have a limited VIP amount, which comes with a neat little canvass bag for holding some of your books in.

Live! The Tickets are Live!

December 28, 2021

It's the end of the year, folks! We're super excited that we've announced a handful of authors, vendors, and special guests before the turn of the year! In addition, the tickets are live! Simply click the button at the top of the page and it will take you to our event ticket page, where you can pick up tickets for yourself, to include our new VIP bundle, which comes with an exclusive cloth goody bag full of all kinds of great things!

More vendor announcements to come!

Tickets Live, December 25th!

November 27, 2021

That's right! If you're looking to get in on the ground floor, tickets will go live on Christmas Day! We'll have a small number of VIP tickets as well for an additional cost that gives you some pretty cool swag to get started with! Kids 10 & under are FREE! General Admission just $5! What are you waiting for? Christmas? Probably.

October 19, 2021
