Times:

First Come, First to Set Up!

When you arrive:

  • Refer to this page
  • Wait in the main parking lot until check-in
  • Unload as directed and park after unloading, but before setting up.

VENDOR PARKING:
Park to the right of the pavilion (when you’re facing it) in the grass between it and the main parking lot. If it is muddy or there isn’t anymore room, park in the main (Red Bluff) Parking Lot. Keep the front and left of the pavilion cleared at all times. It’s customer parking AND Fashion Trucks need to be able to park safely and quickly. 

Don’t park where you see cones, please.

Food & Drink:
We may not have food trucks or concessions. Bring your own food & drink. BE DISCRETE! There’s a no outside food & beverage policy at the fairgrounds. Large meals should be eaten in your vehicles.

Trash:
Please take your trash with you! Bring bags if you need them. There are on-site dumpsters.

Ground Covers:
If you wish to bring a rug, outdoor ground cover, etc., please use it in a safe way! If we ask you to adjust or remove it, please do so. It’s a safety hazard. NO SAWDUST.  No staking in the ground (there’s asphalt under the grass).

LEAVING EARLY: 
We have adjusted our hours to better suit our attendance times. We discourage early tear down and departure. Please stay the entire time. You just never know what may happen! Even busy vendors will start shopping later!

Plus, we may have a vendor gift drawing at the end! We’d love for you to have a chance to be picked! Get your business cards ready!

Shopper Hawking:
You may politely say hi and invite customers in the aisles to come inside your booth. Don’t be obnoxious or chase them down, but you can grab their attention politely. Don’t pull them away from other vendor booths though!

Increase Sales:

Increase your sales chances with engagement! Smile, greet and talk with your shoppers! Our shoppers respond incredibly well to vendors who are active, happy and attentive to them! Actively sell to them with questions, quick mentions of sales and product highlights, and demonstrations! Invite them to touch, feel, and try on your items! Also, give them time to think and quietly shop. Just be nearby and ready to help them close the sale!

HELP STOP THE LAST HOUR LULLS WITH SALES!

Most retail stores see a sales lull around 2 pm to 3 pm which continues until the evening hours. Pop Up markets experience this same lull after 2 to 3 hours of being open. Let’s help keep the shoppers coming by throwing sales! We’ll announce sales around 2 to 3 pm on our social media! We invite you to do the same!

Security:
Security from the Pasadena Police Department will be on-site. If you have an immediate issue, don’t hesitate to go to them first, but please let the coordinator or staff know ASAP!

First Aid:

We have a first aid kit if you or a customer needs it. If you notice anyone hurt, not feeling well, etc. please let us know, so we can help.
