FEES

Your vending fee must be paid before you set up.  Fee is $35 per 12' x 12' space.  If you still need to pay for your vending space, here you go:  https://squareup.com/market/hasani/item/raq-the-harbor-vending

SETUP TIME

Anytime after 9:00 AM.  The Festival begins at noon and ends at 5:00 PM
BYO tables and chairs

      *IMPORTANT*  Your canopy must be weighted down with at least 10 lbs at each leg.  Tent             stakes are not allowed at the park.  Commercially-made canopy weights can be                         purchased, or more economical methods are below:

        Easy DIY tip: a 2-liter soda bottle, when filled with water, weighs 4.4 pounds. 

            3 soda bottles securely attached at each corner would do the trick. 
            A 1-gallon jug of water weighs 8.3 lbs.
            2 liters of sand is about 8 pounds - 2 on each leg would be more than enough

        More complicated DIY tip:  a soda bottle filled with quick-set concrete will weigh even                more.  An eye bolt inserted in the bottle opening as it dries makes securing your                      weights a snap.

TAXES
If you're required to collect sales tax, the rate for unincorporated Gig Harbor is 8.9%.  If you're a dancer selling your used costumes, this probably doesn't apply to you.  If you're unsure, ask me.

OTHER STUFF

Bring a picnic lunch, bring water to stay hydrated.
