You can contact the organization and see if they grant usage, some do, some don't. There is a huge show here twice a year at a University. They go to every booth and look for violators. You can purchase a fair license for the event but it is a thousand dollars. Pretty pricey and it only covers that event.
This is good to know---I'm especially glad you talked about Harley Davidson. I live very near Sturgis, South Dakota, and the Bike Rally every August would be a HUGE market here. I'll have to some checking; thanks for the info!
