Welcome to our 15th annual 3 Days of Aloha in the Pacific Northwest! This year's theme is "Aloha kekahi I kekahi: Love one another". Over 10,000 visitors have swayed to the rhythm as hula dancers and Polynesian singers filled the park with the heartbeat of their cultures.

LOCATION OF YOUR SPACE
We will assign you a space number within the proper category and email this information to you approximately three weeks before the event.
Vendors may drive their vehicles onto the park grounds only on Friday before the event to drop off supplies. All vehicles must immediately exit the site after your drop off is complete so that other vendors may access the site. Unattended vehicles will be towed. Cardboard is required to be placed under your vehicle in case of oil leaks.
On Friday: the event begins at 4:30pm and ends at 9pm
Set-up on Friday: 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm (Vehicles allowed onsite Friday only)
NOTE: We will send you a separate email notifying you of your assigned location once your space location is determined.
On Saturday: the event begins at 10:00 am and ends at 7:00 pm
Set-up: 8am – 9:30am (No vehicles onsite allowed prior to event on Saturday)
At the end of the event on Saturday vehicle access to the park will begin after 6:00 pm to pick up supplies. Each vendor is responsible for cleaning their booth area after the event. All equipment and merchandise must be removed from the park site by 9:00 pm on Saturday.
The volunteers who are cleaning up the event appreciate your efforts to leave your space as clean as you found it at the beginning of the day!
Vendors before, during and after the event will be responsible for providing their own security of “valuables”. Theft and loss are the responsibility of the vendor. We will have security officers patrolling the park area overnight on Friday night, however any items left overnight is at your own risk. Please drop your tents to the lowest settings overnight.
By submitting the vendor application, it is understood that in case of fire, strikes, accidents, transportation contingencies or for any other cause whatsoever beyond our control, Ke Kukui Foundation will not be responsible for theft of any items you intend to sell or items in and around your booth area.
Cancellations must be in writing via email or postal mail. Cancellations made after May 31, 2016 will be refunded minus a $100.00 processing fee.
Additionally, in an effort to ensure a diverse array of products and services and to limit the number of duplications, The Vendor Committee will notify you immediately if your application is refused. For this reason, it is beneficial to submit your application early, as applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis.
In the event of a sellout of spaces you can opt for the wait list.
To officially be on the waitlist is a quick two-step process.
Step 1: Register for the waitlist via Eventbrite. You will be sent an email with step two.
Step 2: Within that email you will be directed to a form to provide the festival with your vendor type and some additional information on your business/booth.
If you do not complete both steps, you are not considered on the waitlist.
Waitlist approval will be ongoing. We expect to provide an answer or status update within 5-10 business days.
You will be notified of an open spot via email and given 48 hours to complete your purchase.
