Also, be sure to follow us on Instagram, comment on our posts, and tag us throughout the season as the show approaches!

Booth details

Please remember that this is a raw 5′ x 8′ space (or 10′ x 10′ if you have been approved for this). We will be able to provide tables and chairs for you to rent — more info coming about this soon!

As with all our shows, the longest side of your booth will be the side open to the public.

FOOD PERMITTING QUESTIONS

Depending on the nature of your product, you may need a temporary food service permit. To reach the Multnomah County Health Department and ask them any questions you may have about this, call (503) 988-3400 and press 0.

furniture rentals

We do have furniture rentals for this show, and you can purchase them for your booth right here.
We’ll have these waiting for you at your booth when you arrive for check-in on the 11th. The deadline to reserve these rentals is October 15th.

Swag

If you need a refresher about what swag is, please refer to the Vendor FAQ so that you’re up to speed. We’ll be collecting your $40 worth of swag from you on Saturday morning when you check in, so please have that separated from the rest of your product so you can hand it off to us easily when you arrive.

If you indicated on your application that you do not want to contribute swag, we’ll add the $50 swag fee on to your booth invoice.

SMOKING POLICY

The Alder Block has a very strict no smoking/vaping policy. Any attendees or vendors found smoking or vaping inside or within 25 feet of the Alder Block property may receive a fine of up to $1,000.

LOAD-IN

Load-in will be from 7:00-9:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. By 9:00 a.m. we would like to have everyone loaded into the hall, which gives you all at least a full hour to put the finishing touches on your booths before doors open at 10:00 a.m.

 

There are THREE different entrances available to load in, and you can choose whichever one is most convenient based on your booth location. The middle door that is closest to check-in is a set of double-doors, while the other two are single door width.

 

WHEN YOU ARRIVE
1) Come to the UCU Info Booth to check in. This is where we’ll get to meet you, point you in the direction of your booth spot, collect your swag, and hand off all your vendor goodies. Please have your swag ready to hand off when you come to check in. If you don’t know what that means, please ask! (And please be sure to relay this to any employees who are working your booth for you, too.)

 

2) Quickly unload ALL of your gear in your designated booth space.

 

3) Before you begin setting up, you’ll go re-park your car, then return to set up your booth. This part is crucial so that we don’t end up with bottlenecks in the loading zone.

You have already indicated on your application whether you would like to be included in our blanket permit, which should save everybody some money in permit fees, assuming we have enough vendors on board. We’ll be in touch within a few weeks after notifications go out with more details about this.

Load In

Load-in will be from 7:00-9:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. By 9:00 a.m. we would like to have everyone loaded into the hall, which gives you all at least a full hour to put the finishing touches on your booths before doors open at 10:00 a.m.

All vendors will be loading in via Load Zones 2 & 3. Only food trucks will be loading in to Zone 1.

WHEN YOU ARRIVE
There will be 2 check-in booths: one in the North Lot, and one in the South Lot. Those loading in from Zone 1 will check in at the South Lot; those loading in from Zone 3 will check in at the North Lot; those loading in from Zone 2 can check in at either booth.At each check-in booth you will see a table with a UCU team member waiting to give you some items for your booth, check you in, AND grab your swag from you. We fully understand that things are hectic in the morning and you are all hustling to get your booths put together. Believe us, we do! However, if you can please come straight to the check-in with your swag, first thing upon arrival, it will actually make things run more smoothly for you. WHY?1) We can direct you to your booth and minimize confusion or the possibility of setting up in the wrong space. (It happens–not often, but it really sucks to have to ask someone to move who is in the wrong space!)

2) We don’t have to hunt you down later and request swag when you are in the midst of setting up. We need to have these bag assembled well before doors open, so time is of the essence!

3) You can be sure you have all the appropriate materials for your booth, and get to say hello to one of us who can be of assistance throughout the day, and/or meet us if you are a new vendor with UCU!

We are ALL IN THIS TOGETHER so helping us keeps the cog working and then you can go set up and spend the rest of your morning doing what you need to do to have a successful day!

AFTER YOU’VE CHECKED IN

Quickly unload ALL of your gear in your designated booth space.

BEFORE SETTING UP
Before you begin setting up, you’ll go re-park your car, then return to set up your booth. This part is crucial so that we don’t end up with bottlenecks in the loading zone. We will have a parking attendant there to ensure that nobody is in the loading zone longer than it takes to quickly unload your car.
PARKING
Parking is free at Magnuson Park, and you are welcome to repark your car in any available spot. However if you’re able, we encourage you to save the closest/most convenient spot for shoppers!
