WHAT: The 7th annual DNA Street Fair.
WHEN: Sunday, June 17, 2007. Rain date: Sunday, June 24.
WHO: The DNA is a non-profit City of Olympia recognized neighborhood association run by volunteer downtown residents. You can join the DNA from this site. It's easy. Joining the DNA is free.
COST: Vendors pay a $60 fee or they can join a work team. Please see application for details.
DONATIONS: If you'd like to donate money or stuff for the DNA to sell at the Street Fair please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us at the main table during the Street Fair.
HURRY: Each year the street fair gets overbooked and spaces are limited. Application deadline is June 8, 2007. All vendors are required to confirm that they are coming in person at the Confirmation Meeting. On the night before the Street Fair, Saturday, June 16, we meet at 7 p.m. in the middle of 5th Ave. between Capitol and Washington. After a brief orientation vendors write their names in their space before they leave.
GROUPS: We allow groups of people to share a single space. If you are sharing a space have each member fill out and sign a separate application. Each member attends the Confirmation Meeting and each member joins at least one work team.
SCHEDULE: Saturday, June 16 at 5 p.m. 5th Ave closes and the Street Crew meets to draw chalk lines of the vending spaces and set up some of the street fair stuff. At 7 p.m. the Confirmation Meeting starts on 5th Ave. At 8 p.m. the meeting is over. On Sunday, June 18 at 6 a.m. the Early Morning Crew sets up the main table. At 7 a.m. vendor set up starts. At 8 a.m. The Fair opens. At 4 p.m. The Fair closes and the Clean Up Crew meets at the main table to clean up the area. At 5 p.m. we meet for a ceremonial closure and at 5:30 p.m. 5th Ave re-opens.
RAIN: It's impossible to have the Street Fair if there's even a small amount of rain and we have to give notice to our vendors well in advance. For this reason, if on Thursday, June 14, the forecast is predicting any rain for Sunday then the street fair will be moved one week to Sunday, June 24. The event schedule will remain the same. All vendors still come the Saturday evening before the rescheduled street fair. A rain date change will be posted on our web site and on the recording of the voice mail line (352-8946).
BRING: Vendors provide their own tables, racks, shelves, etc. Spaces are 8 feet wide and range from 8 to 14 feet long. If you need to extend into your neighboring space(s) (as with a tent) please negotiate with your neighbors when you meet them the night before the street fair. It's recommended to bring: water, sun block, an umbrella or canopy tent, comfortable shoes, a chair, $20 in small change (especially $1 and quarters), and food to eat.
DON'T BRING: We don't allow professional vendors selling factory packaged merchandise. We don't allow vendors selling hot food without a permit (contact the Thurston County Health Dept. for details). We don't allow the sale of weapons, drugs, drug paraphernalia, or alcohol.
NO REMINDERS: Applicants will not be contacted unless there is a problem.
