The Seward Mermaid Festival is a great way to share your business with the seaside community and Alaskans from all over the state. Over the years, we've seen booths from brands you know and love. We want to support local Alaskan brands and will not accept multi-level marketing vendors like Avon, LulaRoe, etc. Scroll to the bottom of this page to review the full list of vendor rules and additional information.
REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR 2024
Basic Vendor Booth
This 10 X 10 space is as simple as it gets. There is no power and generators are not welcome at the event so we can hear the beautiful music.
Bring your own table and tent to share your product with the merfolk and pirates.
Food Truck Space
Swimming works up quite the appetite and merfolk appreciate good food. In previous years, our food truck vendors ran out of supplies every day! We will find a space to accommodate your truck size and place the food vendors far enough away from the music so you can use your own generator/power source.
Vendors will have a 10 foot by 10 foot space and must provide their own tent/tables/chairs.
Food truck space will depend on the truck size. Vendors must provide their own power and be in compliance with all health regulations.
Vendor space is not secured or confirmed until after we have received full payment.
There are no refunds or cancellations after May 1st.
There are no electrical outlets and generators are not allowed. Prepare accordingly.
Vendors are required to have the appropriate tie downs (sand pails/cement tubes/blocks). Coastal communities can get windy and Alaska weather can change at any moment.
Vendors are responsible for any loss of their own or to other vendors property due to their booth not being properly secured.
Vendors are responsible for having the necessary paperwork in their possession (i.e. business licenses, permits, etc.).
Wandering Vendors are NOT permitted at this festival.
