In 2011, the Lexington Masonic Lodge and the Lexington Eastern Star sold fresh lemonade from their Food Booth. If you would like to be a part of this year’s activities, please complete the application and return it to the Chamber office as soon as possible. Deadline with no extra fee is April 16. April 16 through April 27, fee is $50, and after April 27th, fee is $60.

Food Booths

FOOD BOOTHS will be assigned on a first-come, first served basis, with each organization given the opportunity to sell the same food sold last year; foods to be unique to each booth. Booth Fee - $40.00 (see application for specific information).

Lexington Chamber of Commerce has pledged to limit sale of food items to local non-profit organizations. However, those who attend Homecoming need to have foods available Friday Night, Saturday Noon and Saturday Night.

Bar-B-Q contestants give samples from their pits on Saturday night, but some food items need to be available for purchase before and during the dance. The Chamber will be selling hot dogs and soft drinks. Other non-profit organizations are urged to consider selling food items on Friday night.

Of course, the main demand for foods is at noon time on Saturday when the parade is over and the town square is full to overflowing. Because there is a dance on Saturday night, and if the weather permits, many folks return to the Square and there is need for food to be available on Saturday night, also. The Chamber will again sell hot dogs and soft drinks on Saturday night. Other nonprofit organizations are urged to consider selling food items on Saturday night.

Due to the agreement with the soft drink vendor, the Chamber will have exclusive rights to sell commercial soft drinks; other entities may sell non-commercial drinks (such as tea, water, lemonade, etc.)

Game Booths

GAME BOOTHS will be located on the Town Square - The booth fee is also $40.00.

The games add entertainment for the young folks who attend Homecoming and serve as a means to earn dollars for school or church non-profits.

Craft Booths

CRAFT BOOTHS - Each 10x10 space on Wheatly Street adjacent to the square is also $40.00 and will be assigned on a first come - first paid basis. Former participants may request previously occupied locations. The Chamber reserves the right to bar any craft item deemed offensive or in poor taste.
