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 insurance 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. Roaming overnight security is provided.
