VENDOR FAQ

We anticipate having room for approximately 45 vendors, including a few food vendors. If you're an interested food vendor, please email us directly at tidingsportland {at} gmail.com

Each vendor space includes an 8ft table with enough room behind to stand/sit. Vendors may opt not to use the table but should only plan on having the approximate floor space of an 8ft table for their displays. Some 6ft tables may be available, details will be available to accepted vendors. Table fee is $100.

Arrival/unloading time the day of the event will start at 8am and all vendors need to be unloaded and set up no later than 9:45am (doors open at 10am). Ocean Gateway staff manage traffic for vehicles to unload. Please note the event space is on the second floor, accessible by an elevator as well as stairs. Vendors should plan to unload everything, move their vehicle and then set up their booths. This did not pose a problem for anyone last year. All vendors are expected to stay set up until the end of the event at 4pm.

Tidings does not charge an admission fee. We did not take attendance last year, our first at Ocean Gateway, but we guesstimate at least several hundred attendees over the course of the day. We promote Tidings extensively through social and traditional media and expect vendors to do the same within their networks, social and otherwise. This event includes free parking, a rarity in Portland, making the event all that much more convenient for attendees.
