General Rules (this sheet will apply to Arts & Crafts, Food, Community/Nonprofit, and Corporate Sponsor booths. Please provide a signed copy with your application)
Arts & Crafts Applications - we have reduced the number of arts and crafts booth spaces by 10% in 2013. We will be controlling the percentages of vendors by category and we will be stricter in our jury criteria for acceptance.
Food Vendor Applications - we have reduced the number of food court areas and food vendors by 5% in 2013 due to a new layout precipitated by the imminent Sound Transit Light Link Rail construction.
Sponsorship/Corporate Booth Applications - the number of available spaces for 2013 will remain the same as last year.
Nonprofit/Community Booth Applications - we have re-located the community/nonprofit section to University Way NE below NE 42nd St. This has allowed a potential increase in the number of booths by 10%.
General Rules for Bands and Entertainment Applicants (please print this sheet, sign it and include it with your application)
Entertainment Applications - because of the new configuration of StreetFair to accommodate Sound Transit demolition and construction, we will have a Main Stage on NE 43rd St, a Community Stage on NE 42nd St, and a Children’s Stage in the Children’s Area (at the Radio Shack/Chipotle parking lot). This is a 20% reduction in the available time slots for performances.
