Vending at the 2018 Skagit Valley Highland Games

IMG_1123The Skagit Valley Highland Games attracts approximately 15,000 people over the course of each second full weekend of July. Clans and vendors are an important part of our event, and we do everything we can to make it a fun and worthwhile experience. Our goal is for this to be a positive and profitable experience for you, and a truly win-win situation for us all.

If you are a new vendor who has not attended the Skagit Valley Highland Games in the past, we request that you please include pictures and descriptions of merchandise for review with your application. We make efforts to have merchandise that is generally “Celtic” in theme and to the extent possible try to not duplicate food selections especially. For that reason, we also request that all food vendors submit their food menus with their application.

Our process is to review applications and make the determination on including vendors before depositing an application payment (check or credit card). If an application is not approved for any reason, we’ll return the vendor fee payment as soon as possible with notification to the applicant. The Celtic Arts Foundation reserves the right to include or reject an application for any reason.

Important note for food vendors:  New Fire Code regulations have gone into effect as of January 1, 2018. Please see this link for details. Please keep in mind that this is the first year these new regulations are in effect; that being said, we encourage vendors to make preparations as far in advance as possible. We have been informed that the link does not contain information on food vendor trucks and trailers; however, food trucks/trailers (anything on wheels) must be certified by L&I before operating in Washington state. Food truck vendors are encouraged to begin this process as soon as possible in order to have approved inspection prior to the Skagit Valley Highland Games. Food trucks/trailers without proper L&I approval will not be allowed to operate at the Games.
