If you are a food vendor, parking is included in booth fee. Parking is available first come first serve. If you want to park in the venue then purchase it now.
Please record your vehicle's license plate number, vehicle description on the application and enclose a check for $80. The parking spaces are only suitable for vehicles of a maximum length of 20'. Oversized vehicles may park at Benbow Golf Lot. This restriction includes cars towing trailers. We are unable to sell two spaces to one vendor, so if your length exceeds the limit then you must decide which vehicle will remain on-site and which will be parked off site in general parking area. There is no parking on the lakeside section of the fairway during the festival. This is our fire lane and regulations require us to keep it clear. Cars left parked there will be towed. Cars without parking permit will also be towed.
Thanks for your cooperation, it is appreciated.
We are offering the opportunity to highlight vendors in the "vendor spotlight" section of our SAMF 2016 program guide. It is a small paragraph that tells the readers about you and your business.

If you would like to advertise in the guide or you would like to sponsor, call Cathy Miller at 707-923-3368 Ext. 27 or email her firstname.lastname@example.org.
