Registration for Expo Exhibitors for the 2019 Credit Union Cherry Blossom Health and Fitness Expo Has Closed

The Credit Union Cherry Blossom is Washington, DC’s premier spring running event. Called “The Runner’s Rite of Spring®,” the 10 mile and 5K Run-Walk attract over 17,500 runners of all abilities from Olympic medalists and world champions competing for over $45,000 in prize money to more casual runners whose goal is to simply finish 10 miles.  It was cited as the “Best Race in Washington” by the Washingtonian Magazine and recognized as the "Best Pre-Race Expo" by Run Washington. The event is so popular that it is filled through a lottery that attracts nearly 30,000 applicants. This year we are excited to be celebrating the 47th running of the event.

In 2019, the Health and Fitness Expo will be held over two days -- Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6. The 2019 Expo will be held in the historic and beautiful National Building Museum, 401 F Street NW, Washington, DC. (

The National Building Museum is a spectacular building with a naturally lighted ceiling and a large central fountain. The exhibitor area in the 36,600 square foot Great Hall surrounds a beautiful 15-foot in diameter fountain. The beauty of this extraordinary room encourages participants to stay and shop. Metro access at the front of the building and on-street parking ensures a well-attended event. Click on the link below for a 360 degree tour of the building:

We expect more than 20,000 people, including runners with their families and friends, to pass through the Health and Fitness Expo. The pleasant environment will encourage people to stay, visit and shop longer.


The standard booth size is 10’ x 10’ and the price is $1300.00.   The booth fee covers all drayage and union labor for your move in and move out, but does not include electric services.  We will not offer telephone service connections since cell phone service has become so prevalent.  Electrical connection can be supplied for $90.00 if ordered by an individual exhibitor. 

Beyond the single booth space, larger booths are available, with the size and cost being multiples of the size and cost of the standard booth.

Cherry Blossom, Inc., reserves the right to assign booth locations, but, in general, booths will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
