The Olympia Kiwanis are proud to present the annual Tugboat Show and Races, Historic Harbor Ships, Live Music, Arts & Crafts Show, Food Court, Entertainment and Local Showcase for commercial businesses and community groups. Booths are placed throughout the festival – from Port Plaza south to Percival Landing. 55,000 plus attendees.
If you are an artist or crafts person creating items for sale, Olympia Harbor Days is interested in considering you as a vendor in the festival. Please read criteria to be considered an Arts & Crafts vendor in our Participant Policy below.
A small number of booths for commercial vendors, food trucks and community non-profit groups are accepted but go fast!

Booth spaces at Olympia Harbor Days measure 10′ x 10′. You must stay within your 10′ x 10′ assigned space and bring your own tent with sides and supplies. And it gets windy by the water, so please make sure your tent is weighted down! Most booths are on the boardwalk or sidewalk – no staking allowed. Food truck space is measured by the foot.
Vendors need to carry liability insurance and send a certificate naming City of Olympia, Port of Olympia, Olympia Kiwanis, The Event Company, LLC and Carol Riley as additional insured. We are a registered event with ACT Insurance who has both short term and long term policies.

To qualify as an Arts & Crafts Vendor, you must make 75% of the goods in your booth. This includes personally hand crafted items, items which have been hand painted or decorated, music which you have recorded, fine art, photography, pottery, jewelry, furniture, candles, soaps, clothing, sculpture and other crafts. Our goal is to showcase quality items made by working artisans. Imported and factory made goods are considered commercial at the rate of $550 per 10 x 10 foot booth. No exceptions made. Neither Olympia Harbor Days, nor the Olympia Kiwanis Club, provide vendors with individual coverage during the festival, including set-up and take-down. Vendors are solely responsible to obtain their own insurance coverage for this event in such amounts and on such terms as the exhibitors deem necessary in their sole discretion. All vendors must supply their own 10 x 10 foot booth which must be reasonably secured for protection against theft and weather, or any act of God.
