2015 Vendor Opportunities
Email Lynne Handlos or call 425-295-0584 to apply to be a vendor.
The City of Sammamish is seeking vendors that have 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 success of the event. Interested vendors should submit a vendor interest form, including contact information, Uniform Business Identifier (UBI) number, organization or business name (that matches this UBI), electrical needs, information about the organization and a list of products being sold or given away.
Qualifying vendors will be selected on a first come, first served basis and space is limited. Submitting a 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.
Upon acceptance, 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.
Categories & Requirements
Commercial vendors are businesses, organizations or individuals who sell products or services at the event. These types of vendors must have a City of Sammamish business license. The license can be obtained online through Washington State Department of Licensing. If selling food, a temporary food service permit is required from King County Public Health. Certificates of insurance are required that list the “City of Sammamish” as additional insured.
Community vendors are organizations that provide information or will be marketing an event, opportunity or the organization. Certificates of insurance are required for all vendors that list the “City of Sammamish” as an additional insured.
