Here's our general vendor info letter--important information here!
Hello Everyone and Welcome to Seattle PrideFest 2012!
Many of you were with us last year, and I would like to welcome you back. For those who are new to PrideFest this year we are excited to have you as part of our event this year and hopefully in future years as well. This email is to pass on information that will be important to your planning and preparation for a successful event. Please review the information and contact me with any questions.
At the top of this page--please contact Egan if you have any questions about placement (email@example.com).
We will roll out decorator orders by end of May 2012.
Note: Groups who rented tables inside the Fisher Pavilion will be provided with one table and 2 chairs. Sponsors and Corporate Booths will be provided with a tent, table, and 2 chairs.
Use of PrideFest Logo
You cannot sell any souvenirs using the PrideFest logos without our approval. You can sell your own logo design merchandise in your booth. Any items sold must be included in a report of sales form.
If you have music in your booth, please keep the volume at a reasonable level that does not conflict with conversation or bother your neighbors. Speakers must point directly out of booth, and music must be appropriate for all ages.
Hawking (recruiting sales):
Hawking must be limited to the area 10' immediately in front of your booth, unless your sponsorship agreement provides you a larger area of opportunity.
No alcoholic beverages can be brought into or consumed on the Seattle Center grounds other than in designated areas.
Seattle Center does not allow the distribution of stickers on Center Grounds. There are many artist tiles/pavers/murals on the grounds and this rule is to help preserve those pieces.
Water, Beverage, and or Food/Snack Sales and Distribution:
Seattle PrideFest has an official sponsor for all beverages at the event. As per that agreement, no one will be allowed to give away water or other beverages during the festival except the Seattle PrideFest staff and beverage sponsors (restaurant and snack booths are allowed to sell that product, but if you are not a restaurant/snack vendor please don't plan on distributing beverages or giving away any food items).
WHERE TO ENTER THE SEATTLE CENTER GROUNDS
Best place to load in at is the Corner of 2nd Ave and Thomas St. You’ll be greeted by a Seattle Center gate guard who will direct you to your booth space. If you come armed with your booth name, location #, and area for your booth, it will help.
ELECTRICITY, TENTS, TABLES, AND CHAIRS
You should order all these things before you come to the festival (ordering info at www.seattlepridefest.org/vendors/info) – it will be very hard to get these things once you’re on-site.
DRIVE SAFELY ON GROUNDS!
You need to drive slowly and cautiously on the Seattle Center Grounds, as there are kids, bikes, skateboards, and pedestrians everywhere! NEVER drive on the Pavers or Lawn. SC charges Pride if pavers are cracked, or lawn damaged, and we also get charged for dinging trees, shrubs, etc. so be super careful and safe!
PARKING WHILE UNLOADING
Park tight to the curb, so that others can pass you, unload your goods quickly then go park off-site and return to complete your booth setup. This assures the least delays for everyone at the gates, and makes all of our lives easier.
LOAD-IN INFORMATION IS BASED ON LOCATION:
LOAD-IN FOR: Sponsor Booths/National Non-Profits:
Load-In is available on Saturday from 5:00-7:00pm for all booths in this category.
Please arrange Load-In with firstname.lastname@example.org
The grounds will be monitored overnight but please keep all valuables off site until you are there on Sunday.
You may also load in on Sunday after 7:00am (but the grounds are much busier Sunday AM)
LOAD-IN FOR: Tables inside the Fisher Pavilion:
Load-In Begins Sunday 6/24 at 8am.
You will not be allowed to drive onto the grounds so I would recommend bringing a hand truck or dolly with you.
LOAD-IN FOR: Booths Located on the Fisher Pavilion Roof and Mural Amphitheatre:
Load In begins Sunday at 7am
Also the booths on top of Fisher Pavilion must have feet to protect the pavers.
We recommend a small square of plywood or carpet piece that you can put under your table and tent legs.
This is to ensure the pavers remain nice and Seattle Center has asked that we take special care of this beautiful tile work.
LOAD-IN FOR: Booths located on the Fisher Green “G” and “K” locations:
Load-In Sunday at 7:30am.
Please do not drive on the lawn for any reason.
Booths located around the Fountain “F” locations:
Load-In begins Sunday at 8:30am
Please do not drive on the tiles around the Fountain.
Load out is more complicated. Officially we can't allow vehicles on grounds until the pedestrian traffic has cleared. What that means is that to drive on grounds can take a while. The areas of grounds are staggered. So usually Mural would load out first (630pm ish), Fisher would be (730pm ish) and Fountain would be last (830ish). These times are approximate, based on past years.
If you are loading out by hand and/or cart, you may load-out as soon as your area closes (Mural and Fisher roof: 6pm, Fisher Green: 7pm, Fountain: 8pm). There is a loading zone at 2nd Ave and Thomas to meet up with your vehicle.
Please before you get your vehicle, finish packing up your area. This makes the process quicker and easier for all of us. IF YOU DO DRIVE IN, follow the traffic pattern, do not make U turns, or park nose to nose with other cars. this slows the process considerably.
Thanks, and we look forward to a great PrideFest! Thanks for being part of our biggest year yet!
