Every year thousands of Columbus folk gather in a huge outdoor festival called ComFest.  It’s a freeloving, happy event with live music on five stages and an eclectic street fair.

This year, we at Baying Hound hopes to be part of the street fair.

It’s not easy to get in, though.  Last year 500 businesses applied for 200 spots.  ComFest organizers have created a jury system to choose who will be allowed to display.

We would love your input about how to showcase our business on the application.  Our draft application is below.  If you have a few minutes, please be our test jury and comment with your suggestions.

Many thanks!

Please list all items you plan to sell or distribute:

We sell items that empower people to live earth friendly lives. We will offer BPA free water bottles, reusable bags, and eco-accessories.  All items are sustainably made, have a long life, and are all natural.

Please provide a description of your booth.


Our booth will be covered by a fire resistant 10×10 tent. Items will be creatively displayed in reclaimed and recycled containers atop two tables and along display walls.


We have a large vinyl sign announcing the Baying Hound name and logo. Printed signage (on recycled or recycled content paper) will include payment and sales tax instructions.

We will have literature about our 1% for Good program whereby we donate 1% of all sales to charitable organizations.  Last year our sales benefited the Capital Area Humane Society, UNICEF Children’s Fund, Nature Conservancy, 4 Paws 4 Amelia, Mid-Ohio Food Bank, and the School for Young Children scholarship fund.  We will also have flyers available with earth friendly education tips.

In the evening, we will light the booth with rechargable enclosed LED lanterns.  We do not require electricity.

In every way possible, our booth design will reflect the Baying Hound mission to provide the green products customers need to enjoy an earth friendly lifestyle.
