We just wrapped up the 2021 Boreal Bigfoot Expo. We had a great turnout and we had great feedback on the event. For those of you who are interested in possibly participating next year, the following is simply information to consider. We will open sign ups for vendors, other participants, and sponsors probably in the new year. Give us a little time to recoup and start planning. We really hope to see MORE participants next year!
There will be some available vendor spaces at the Boreal Bigfoot Expo. We are hoping to keep our vendor selection tailored to the event and the people who will be attending. What this means is that we’re looking for (examples) bigfoot/cryptid related vendors, outdoor gear (hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, etc), wilderness tours, wildlife groups, outdoor/animal photography, cryptid/paranormal/outdoor adventure booksellers, artists, and other vendors that can really fit into this sort of expo. Are you selling or promoting something that would appeal to people attending a bigfoot expo?
Displays & Demos
The 2021 Boreal Bigfoot Display only had expo committee made displays. We were hoping that the public felt inspired by the work done and would like to participate in some manner - creating their own display. At the 2021 Tanana Valley State Fair, there was a wonder paper mache GIANT salmon. If someone felt so inclined to do something similar - a lifesize model of an Alaskan cryptid...WOW. That would be totally awesome! That's just an example idea. Perhaps you're an anthropology student at UAF and would like to put together a display on hominids or a study of fossil findings of Gigantopithecus blacki. Perhaps you are study Alaska Native art or mythology and are interested in putting together a display to bring in a native perspective. Think outside the box.
We are interested in having demonstrations for the public at the expo. This could be a demonstration on wildlife photography or a demo for different models of trail cams or how to cast a track or something else that is relevant to the expo.
We always need sponsors for the Boreal Bigfoot Expo. Sponsorship donations allow us to rent the space, print signage, etc. Sponsors for the event get their logos printed on flyers and printed public event documents, they get mentioned during radio and tv advertising (and print adverts if we do them), and we publicly thank our sponsors at the expo. If you have a business that would like to sponsor, please contact us in January.
Last year we mentioned the possibility of having piggy-back events. You rub our backs, we rub yours. Want to run a sasquatch coffee special? We will direct traffic your way for that if you post up an event flyer at your location. Want to plan a Bigfoot 5K Trail Run? We will encourage people to sign up, if you encourage people to show up to the expo. We are open to ideas.
