Gobble Up 2020

frequently asked questions

*** Portland Show ***
  • Date/Time: Saturday, October 19th, 2019 (10am-5pm)
  • Register for free right here (link coming soon!)
  • Location: The Redd on Salmon Street
  • No dogs allowed
  • Admission: FREE (with $1 suggested donation)

If the event is free, why do I need to register?

The Eventbrite registration lets us anticipate how many attendees to expect and plan for, allows us to communicate important information to you before the show, and also to know how many people actually attended the show. And even more importantly, it helps our vendors to know how much product to bring so they don’t sell out before the day is over!

This is especially important for shows like this one where food is involved, as many of our vendors are working with perishable goods, and helping them to not over-prepare is helpful in cutting down on waste. (And helping them prepare to bring enough means they won’t sell out and you’ll get to enjoy their delicious food all day long!)

How do I get there?

Visit this page for driving, biking, and transit directions to The Redd, as well as information about parking.

Is there parking?

There is street parking available around the venue, but we encourage you to come to our show via public transit, bike, on foot, or carpooling if you must drive! See above link for transit options.

Are kids allowed?

Yes! This show is all ages, and children under the age of 12 do not need their own registration ticket.

Are dogs allowed?

No, sorry!

Do I need to print my ticket?

We encourage you to save the trees and instead have it accessible on your phone as you enter. If you can have it already pulled up and waiting to be scanned, this will help us a lot in avoiding bottlenecks at the front doors.

Will there be free samples?

While vendors are not required to sample their product, many of them will be doing so. However, this is not purely a tasting event, and for this reason admission is free. Our hope is that you’ll find may great gifts for both yourself as well as friends and family during the holiday season. Please be respectful of vendors who are sampling, and of your fellow shoppers, by limiting your sampling to only what you need in order to taste and experience their product.

Do you have a lost & found?

During the event, any lost and found items will be held at the Information Booth. After the event is over, please contact the venue to inquire about any lost and found items.

How can I get involved?

Volunteering is a great way to meet new friends and see the ins and outs of craft show vending and managing. We are looking for volunteers to help with everything from set-up to vendor support, hosting the raffle booth, the UCU info booth, head counting at the door, and so much more. In exchange for volunteering your time, we give you a gift of thanks, we feed ya’ and give you our undying gratitude! Email Kristen if you’re interested in joining us.

How do I become a vendor?

Applications are open to the public.  We look at various components when we jury, including quality, diversity, fans’ demands, price range, etc.

As UCU has grown, our shows have become more and more competitive.  We suggest reading over the Vendor FAQ fully before sending in your application. And be sure to sign up for our mailing list so you don’t miss a deadline! No applications will be accepted after the closing date.
