This is a "bugs" only event and by invite from the CA Poly entomology dept. for vendors. I have not seen a vendor list, but to name a few I will be there, millipedes and more, F Torres of S.C.A.B.I.E.S, and there is always several others who support this wonderful event. If you are looking for bugs there will be plenty, but no reptiles. Ticket sales are open to all public, are cheap, and proceeds aid in field trips for the department.

Thank you! I knew it was no reptiles, but wanted to be sure (especially given the low ticket prices) that it wasn't just a "come and look at the cool bugs" event but was something where I could also potentially pick up a few "souvenirs" to add to my collection. :rolleyes:
