Tabling facts for community organizations

  • The Be Involved Fair will be a zero-waste, in-person, outdoor tabling event.
  • Nonprofit organizations, campus departments and recognized student organizations table at the event and it is open and free to all CU students who want to attend.
  • There is a $30 fee for nonprofit organizations to table at the Be Involved Fair, which includes one 6' table and two chairs set up for you in advance. All fees go towards the cost of throwing this event.
  • Organizations who are tabling can bring their own 10'x10' tent to use for shade, but they must be secured with water, cement or sand weights (no ground stakes allowed). 
  • Same layout as last year! Tables will be set up in a “neighborhood style” layout this year to allow for better foot traffic flow and to facilitate community building during the event.
  • Internet access and access to natural shade is limited on the field.
  • All tabling materials must fit on your 6' table so as to keep walkways open and accessible at the fair.
  • No music, large props or open flames allowed. 
  • Be Involved Fair is a drug- and alchohol-free event!
