Do I have to donate Swag items?

All vendors must donate at least 5 items for our swag bags and raffle. This may include small sample products and/ or marketing items i.e. a flash drive with your logo on it, key chains, etc. The total value of the 5 items should be a minimum of $25 at cost (not retail). If your products are too large to donate 5 items, we will consider a large item or gift card of equal or greater value for raffle item (upon approval only). You may also include stickers or coupons for use to give away to guests who RSVP (digital discounts can also be sent to our RSVP list).

All swag items will be promoted on our Instagram, and are also a great way to market your business to our guests!

We have a diverse crowd of all ages including beach locals, craft beer enthusiasts, couples, families,  trendsetting teenagers, splurging "girl gangs", and the older patrons of the arts. Our events attract between 600-1000 guests in attendance on average.

What type of vendors will be there?

Vendors are mostly local to the North San Diego area with handmade goods and boutique items related to coastal living. We will also book food and sweets vendors into the event, and a select number of local businesses will be welcomed to promote their services as well. MLM businesses will not be accepted to participate.

A limited amount of electricity will be available to approved vendors.

Can I bring my canopy?

Can I share a booth with my friend?

Sorry, we do not allow shared booths at this event.

I have applied and did not hear back. What is the status of my application?

When selecting vendors we take your business location, social media presence, diversity, and quality into account. If you do not hear back from us within two weeks of your submission, you did not meet all of our requirements.
