  • The Jackson Civil War Society, a not-for-profit organization, is hosting a “Boulevard Area” in conjunction with the 35th Annual Jackson Civil War Muster at our new home in Ella Sharp Park in Jackson, Michigan. Ella Sharp Park offers a delightful atmosphere in which to showcase your beautiful creations/products. Approximately 40,000 people converge on the park during the event. Our patrons appreciate this exhibt and let you know by their interest in your services and by attending events you sponsor in the Jackson community. We invite you to apply to exhibit at our 2019 Boulevard Show.
    Suggested show hours are 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday August 24 and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday August 25. However, there are scheduled activities in the park on Saturday until 8:30 p.m. All vendors may stay open if they desire.
    Booth spaces are 11' x 11'. Please design your booth to include storage area within the space allowed. Non Profits must furnish their own tents or canopies, display equipment, tables, chairs etc.. Motels and campgrounds are available, but reservations must be made early and are the responsibility of the organization. Booth workers will need to park in “General Parking.”
    If you wish to be an exhibitor in our Boulevard show please fill out completely, the enclosed booth application and submit it with a description of your organization or link to your website representing the items you will be selling.
    • Booth must be manned and stocked throughout the event
    • The sale of beverages ie. bottled water, pop, coffee etc. or ready to eat food items, in Boulevard area is not allowed. Selling these items will change your status to a food vendor, for which, the cost is $750.
    We are located near the Ella Sharp Museum on Elmdale Dr. This area will be blocked to all traffic during show hours Saturday August 24 and Sunday August 25. Registration and setup begin Friday August 23, at 12:00 p.m. and end promptly at 6:00 p.m. Please note that all exhibitors are required to register at the registration tent located near the Ella Sharp Museum on Elmdale Dr. When you check in you will be informed of your booth location.

    Tear down begins at approximately 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 25 and must be completed by 8:00 p.m. so that the street can be re-opened.
    The Non Profit organization agrees to maintain an asthetically pleasng booth and limit the displays to those things that are suitable to the character of the exhibt. The committee has the right to request removal of any items it feels unsuitable. It is the wish of our Boulevard Committee that this shall remain family friendly exhibit area. We believe it is in the best interest of the Boulevard show and exhibitors to maintain high quality displays.
