Game Participation Form
Our Hometown Days committee invites you and your group to participate in our town’s celebration by hosting a game booth. Reservation deadline is May 1st. Due to limited spaces for booths, vendors will be chosen on a first come, first serve basis. Over 12,000 event attendees will see your booth…it’s a powerful and affordable way to interface with the community and peninsula area. Please complete the online application and make your payment through our website.
1. Booth spaces are $50 for a 10’ by 10’ single space, $100 for a double space for San Carlos entries and $75 or $150 for non-San Carlos entries. Game Booths are Saturday and Sunday and the hours of operation are from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Exceptions can be made to the size if requested in advance, but are not guaranteed. Plan on providing shade and with it sand bags or other weights to secure your coverings, as stakes are not permitted in the grass area. Please secure your items as it can sometimes get very windy in the late afternoon. Note there is no space provided surrounding your booth. Storage is not allowed in-between, behind, or around your booth. Your group must provide their own tables, linens, signage, and chairs. You will also be asked to provide your own bucket to collect your game tickets. Hometown Days will take 10% of the game booths earnings that exceed $500. Checks to you or your group are issued about 10 days after the event. You should plan to arrive between 6:00-8:00 a.m. to give yourself enough time to set up your booth. If you have any food for prizes (candy, etc.) it must be wrapped per health code.
2. All vendors must provide a Certificate of Insurance specifically for this event. This is necessary because each booth is liable as an individual and will not be covered by Hometown Days. Your coverage should include any lost, stolen or damaged items, as well as liability coverage for your participants. Insurance carriers that usually provide these are below and we will accept any of the following:
– Home Owners Insurance
– Renters Insurance
– Car Insurance
– One day Event Insurance through any insurance provider of your choice
3. All vehicles used to deliver items to your booth must have a loading zone permit. This will allow you to leave your vehicle for 20 minutes at a time in the Cedar Street or Woodland Street Loading Zone areas to deliver items to your booth. The San Carlos police will have a copy of authorized vehicles. All others may be towed at the owner’s expense. Official Permit for Parking will be handed out at vendors meeting on May 4th.
