Welcome to the Reno Earth Day Celebration. The event grows and changes every year, so read all instructions prior to submitting an application to exhibit at this event. Special ideas, exhibits and activities are welcomed, so please feel free to suggest/request them if they do not fit into the application structure.

Applications are due by March 27, 2020 to avoid late fees.

Equipment – The event no longer supplys equipment (tables, chairs, canopies) to exhibitors. This is a free community event and exhibitors are encouraged to be self-sufficient in design and construction of their booth spaces. Please bring everything you will need for your booth. If necessary, you may be able to order such equipment from our supplier – Camelot Party Supply. This is the only supplier who will have access to the event. If approved, your equipment rental would be directly with Camelot and they would set up your equipment the day before the event, and pick it up after the event.

Grassy Exhibit areas: There are no stakes/pins/nails/etc. allowed in the park. There are no tarps/rugs/large flat surfaces allowed on the grass. If your booth requires these items, you must request blacktop space. Please bring rope and weights, sand bags, water jugs, etc. to weight down your booth items, canopy, signs, etc.

Set Up and Loading Zones: Exhibitors will be assigned a set up time between 6:30-10:30am so we can stagger vehicles in loading zones over the 4 hour period (everyone cannot arrive at once). Most spaces are cart and carry over the grass, so loading zones get you as close to spots as possible. Vehicles must be unloaded and then removed/parked in designated areas within 30 minutes. No vehicles may be parked in loading zones (even if it looks like a parking lot). There will be volunteers to help with carts and carrying to assigned spaces. All spaces should be marked by the time exhibitors arrive. Please let us know if your exhibit has special needs not covered in this application.

Parking (Change from Previous Years): Exhibitors will be assigned to a specific parking lot at the park based on the location of their booth. Each exhibitor is allowed 1 vehicle to be parked in the park. Additional vehicles may be parked at Reno High School (1/2 block nearby) or at any available street parking in the area. Loading zone personnel will be trained to direct you to the correct lot for your single vehicle. This ensures that all exhibitors have a spot within the park. Exhibitors will receive specific event and parking maps, space numbers and assignments the week before the event by email. Please ensure your email is valid & check it regularly for updates.

FOOD/Beverage Restrictions: Food/beverage vending slots are limited and require a special application and fees. If you wish to sell food at the event – prepared or packaged – you must contact us for approval to receive the special application. Food and/or beverages may not be distributed as giveaways for this event, and if you bring your own food, GLASS containers and outside alcohol are not allowed in the park. Please respect this.

WASTE: Exhibitors are responsible for disposing of all waste properly in proper Recycling bins to maximize recycling (Compost, cardboard, glass, cans, plastic bottles, etc.). Any run-off water, ice or grease will need to be collected by the exhibitor and removed as gray-water or disposed of in our gray water basin. If it cannot go into a proper receptacle, take it back with you and Leave No Trace. Let’s see how close we can get to 0-Waste!

GLASS: Glass is only allowed in the park if it is part of your product to take home. Not used in the park. Examples: Etched glass, glass art, glass containers of candles, grocery items, etc. No glass of any kind is allowed in the Trash, and glass breakage from these products will need to go in the recycling bins not provided by the City. No glass containers for anything to be consumed at the park is allowed.

Washoe County Health Dept: All vendors giving samples must obtain a WCHD temporary food permit specifically for this event. You contact them separately to arrange for this permit at (775) 328-2434.

Booth Sharing: Booth sharing is a way to access the event at half the space fee. If 2 or more exhibitors would like to share space, they should submit on the same application and note both “companies.” Both will be listed as exhibitors and we need all exhibitors listed for city and state laws. Exhibitors may not sublet or allow sharing for other businesses, sales, crafts or non-profit organizations that are not officially registered. IF sharing a booth, both exhibitors must have a separate City of Reno Business License or $15 temporary license; Please note the extra fee if needed, in the payment section. *** No subletting to any unregistered organization or exhibitor is allowed. ***

Handcrafted Discount! There is a $40 discount this year for 100% handcrafted items. All items promoted or for sale in the booth must be 100% handcrafted (except materials). If sharing the booth with non-handcrafted items, the discount would not apply; the general exhibitor fee would apply.

NOTE: While we try to limit too many like items so exhibitors do well with their product, no one is guaranteed exclusive representation of any product type. We try to be as inclusive as possible and the event is large enough to ensure competing services are not too near each other. Where a limited number of slots fill up for highly competitive items (jewelry, soaps, candles, honey, etc.), these slots will be filled on a first come first serve basis at the sole discretion of event staff. If you are curious or concerned about over-saturation of a particular item, please feel free to inquire before you apply. Closed items are updated often on our website.

One exception is Direct Marketing brands. We generally allow only one representative of a specific brand at the event on a first come first serve basis. Slots are considered taken only once payment is received. It is the responsibility of the exhibitor to inquire and notify us if they must be the sole representative of a brand. Exceptions occur if more than one representative agree to be at the event together, or if the event did not know it was a direct marketing brand. In these cases, the event makes all efforts to locate booths in separate areas of the event. Exhibitors must identify all direct marketing brands planned for their booth.

The event will go on, Rain or Shine! There are no refunds after March 27, 2020.

Thank you for joining us!
