The 2017 FICRA Fair

Fair Policies and Information

The last day for Booth signups was Wednesday, August 8th.

The FICRA Fair Map and booth assignments have been emailed and will also be given to each vendor upon arrival.

Vendors may set up their booth space on Friday, August 10th between 5:00pm and 8:00pm. A Fair attendant will be available to direct you to your assigned space. You will still be required to check in on Saturday morning. The gates will be locked at 8:00 pm. FICRA is not responsible for any theft or damage of any materials; merchandise or equipment left on-site overnight. Our island Citizens Patrol organization will perform periodic checks on the facility during the night. Check in will be Saturday morning between 8:00 AM and 10:30 AM. Please see our FICRA Fair Attendant for check in prior to setting up your booth. Tent Canopies must be setup by 9 am Saturday to comply with the Fire Department inspection requirements. Complete booth set up must be complete by 10:45 AM Saturday, August 11th. Please be courteous to neighboring vendors who are also setting up. Unload and immediately move your vehicle to the vendor parking area before setting up your booth.

All food and beverage vendors, including those who sell home-prepared food or food cooked on-site are required to follow the food safety regulations set forth by the Pierce County Health Department regarding temporary food establishments.

We encourage all vendors to park your vehicle at the rear of the parking lot as indicated on your Fair map, leaving closer spaces and on street parking for public parking. Please do not park in front of the building as we want to keep those spaces free for our disabled Fair visitors. Please dismantle your booth Saturday afternoon after 4PM, and clean up and haul away all materials, including any trash you or your customers may have generated during the day in and around your booth area. You must supply your own garbage bags and cans. There is no regular garbage service at the Nichols Community Center. Please take your trash with you when you leave the fairgrounds.

The FICRA Fair is both a fun community event and a fundraising activity for the continued maintenance and operation of the Nichols Community Center and grounds. If you would like to advertise your business or craft, consider donating to the FICRA Fair Raffle Room. Proceeds benefit the FICRA Building Trust.

FICRA Fair is managed entirely by Fox Island volunteers. If you have any questions, please email the FICRA Building Trust Board of Directors at fair@ficra.org. Thank you for participating in this fun community event!
