• Event times are 10am- 2pm
  • Event is Rain or Shine.  We do not have a rain date
  • Booth space is free, however we require you to provide an activity for participants (prizes and giveaways are also encouraged).  No booths are allowed to simply give away information about their organization, an activity must be provided (unless you are a paid sponsor).
  • Upon arrival look for a Family Day Volunteer (wearing a marked T-shirt).  You will be pre-assigned a space, which a volunteer will help you locate.
  • Plan to arrive between 8-9 am in order to ensure enough set up time.
  • From 8-9:30 am you can drive your car to the edge of the field for unloading.  Starting at 2pm once your booth is broken down you can drive your car back to the edge of the field for loading.
  • All booths and activities must be free to participants.  We recommend having a creative company sign at your booth.
  • Each booth or field activity should have a tent or other covering for volunteers during the event.  The sun is strong and it can get hot.
  • We must receive this application within 3 weeks prior to the event.  This allows us to post your participation online, advertise in the newspaper etc.  If you do not have an activity planned at the time of filling out this application, you can send in all other information and email us your activity within 3 weeks of the event.
  • There is no water source or electricity source.  Selected areas have electricity hook up via generator and are already reserved for specific public service vendors.
  • Don’t forget bug spray and folding chairs for volunteers.  Bring duct tape, scissors, table cloths/covers and stakes for signage, table etc.  Remember we are in a park setting and resources are not readily available.  Prepare for 300-400 attendees.  The total event gets approx 1000 attendees.
  • Carry in and carry out all of your trash.  Let’s keep the park clean!
  • No booths are allowed to sell items including raffle tickets, or have a donation jar.  If you are promoting a fundraiser we recommend having information available on where people can go outside of Family Day to purchase raffle tickets/make donations.
  • There is free parking!
