The 2017 FICRA Fair

Fair Policies and Information

All booth spaces are 10' x 10'. Please note that we are adjusting our booth rates this year to a flat rate fee and doing away with the additional percentage of gross fee. Therefore, the booth fees will be $35 for adults and $30 for kids, 15 and under. For our current FICRA members in good standing (at the time of the fair) you are allowed one Fair booth for each paid FICRA family membership, for $10 (Adults) and $5 (Kids). Additional booths are available at $35 (Adults) and $30 (Kids) each. Fox Island Non-profit organizations should contact the Fair Committee at fair@ficra.org for pricing information. You must provide all supplies needed to run your booth, including tables, chairs, canopies, umbrellas and any other supplies.

You may download and complete the Vendor/Booth Application form and mail it to FICRA at PO Box 25, Fox Island, WA along with your booth fee. You may also complete the Booth Application online and pay via PayPal.  There will be no refunds for no-shows. Please share any information we may need as well as your booth preference and the FICRA Fair committee will do their best to accommodate your needs. The FICRA Fair Map and booth assignments will be emailed about 2 weeks before the fair and also be given to each vendor upon arrival.

Vendors may set up their booth space on Friday, August 11th 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 12th. 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 community fun 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.
