The Pagan Festival - Vendor and Non-Profit Application Information for 2014
Theme: Service Through Spirituality
The Pagan Festival and Parade is the day before Mothers' Day.
Vendors will be located in the park in assigned 10’x 10’ spaces.
Vendor Guidelines for Participation
Each vendor space is 10-foot by 10-foot (100 square feet) on the lawn; not on a paved surface. To meet accessibility requirements of the City of Berkeley, one side of your booth is required to open to the interior park sidewalk. Your booth should also be accessible to the interior of the park facing the ritual area and the stage. Please provide your own canopy or shade structure, table(s) and chair(s). Your shade structure, equipment and merchandise are to fit within your assigned space. We encourage a sign or signs to identify your business or service, and decorations to create a marketplace atmosphere.
Your space assignment is based on the date of we receive and acceptance of your application. If you apply early, you can request a specific side of the park. The vendors who submit later in the process may receive spaces located outside of the main circle or adjacent to the fountain, facing the stage.
(The stage will be on the Northwest edge of the main circle and the Peace Wall and Fountain are on the East edge of the main circle. Vendor spaces outside of the main circle are on the West, North and South outer edges of the main circle facing the inner park sidewalk.)
A 10-foot by 10-foot space, one table and two chairs are provided. Non-profit are permitted to display information and sell items with organization logos and associated with your organization. All proceeds are required to go to your organization. Please provide your own shade not to exceed 10 feet by 10 feet. Please pay through the PayPal link which will be provided to you after submission of your application. If you intend to vend or offer a service, then you are not considered a non-profit and are required to pay the vendor fee to participate.
