2016 Vendor Opportunities
Apply through the online vendor interest form, email Lynne Handlos, or call 425-295-0584 to apply to be a vendor.
The City of Sammamish is seeking vendors that have products, customers and promotional goals consistent with the City’s character, values and service priorities. To be considered for an event, potential vendors must be family friendly and contribute to the overall event’s success.
Qualifying vendors will be selected on a first come, first served basis and space is limited. Submitting an Event Vendor Interest Form does not guarantee acceptance. All applicants will be notified as to the status of their application within two weeks of receipt. While our goal is to have a variety of vendors represented at events, some popular items may be duplicated depending on the anticipated attendance and event layout.
Accepted applicants will receive a vendor welcome packet that provides more information about the event, vendor requirements and payment deadlines. One week prior to the event, you will receive an event logistics packet with a site map, your booth or vehicle location, parking passes and other “day of” information.
Interested vendors should submit a vendor interest form to Lynne Handlos at firstname.lastname@example.org.
