I acknowledge that I have read, understand and agree to abide by all Salmon Days Vendor Rules and Regulations (shown below).
I acknowledge that applying, submitting an application and tendering payment to be a vendor at the Issaquah Salmon Days Festival does not automatically guarantee acceptance into the Festival.
I specifically agree that my organization will not seek or accept sponsorships for my booth and that sharing the booth with another vendor or organization of any type is strictly prohibited.
2020 SALMON DAYS VENDOR RULES AND REGULATIONS
- Booth fees are non-refundable unless cancelled 30 days prior to the event.
- Booth fees cover only the booth space. Vendors are responsible for arranging and bringing their own tents, tables, chairs, etc.
- Any vendor who applies two weeks or less from the Festival and up until the day before the Festival may only pay their booth fee via credit card. We will no longer accept checks and/or money orders that close to the Festival.
- Vendors must remain in the footprint of their booth space and are not allowed to 'rove' with their merchandise and/or place/display merchandise outside their booth footprint. This applies even if there is an empty space next to your booth.
- The Issaquah Salmon Days Festival name, logo and theme are trademarked. Any use must be pre-approved by the GREATER ISSAQUAH CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.
- Vendors cannot sell or promote another vendorís work in their booth. Booth sharing is strictly prohibited and will result in immediate expulsion.
- Festival electricity is NOT available for any vendors except food vendors located in Foods of the World (main food court).
- Generators are NOT allowed for any vendor (Arts & Crafts, Farmerís Market, etc.) other than Food vendors that are not located in Foods of the World. Generators used by food vendors must be whisper-quiet.

Hours of Operation
- Festival hours are 10am - 6pm, Saturday and Sunday. BOOTHS MUST REMAIN OPEN DURING THIS TIME. Tearing down prior to 6pm will result in a one-year suspension from Salmon Days.
- Vendors must be present in their booth for both days of the festival.
- All applications are juried on quality and originality within each jury category.

Please make arrangements for extra help and/or allow yourself extra time if you need it.
- If your booth is located on the street, always plan to park then load in/out by hand truck/carrying. That way, you will always be prepared in case there is no street access due to unforeseen circumstances and you cannot drive up to your booth location.
