Creating Resilient Communities
Earth Day Celebration 2019
Mount Shasta City Park
Sunday, April 28rd
Eco Expo 11:00 AM to 4 PM
Sponsored by the Mount Shasta Bioregional Ecology Center
This Earth Day Celebration is a Mount Shasta tradition – we have sold out of exhibitor booths for “Earth Friendly” vendors and exhibitors to attend and take part in the festivities! The event will occur all day (11 am to 6 pm) with Eco Expo (booths) open to the public from 11 am to 4 pm – exhibitors are asked to keep their booths set up until at least 4 pm, and not begin takedown until that time. Setup may start at 8 am and takedown should finish by 8 pm.
The Celebration will include guest speakers, children’s activities, information booths, bake sale, native plant walk, raffle and more!
Vendor booths are $25 and non-profit 501(c)3 booths are $20 for the day. Each space includes a banquet-sized table. We have approximately 15 indoor booths and 15 outdoor booths (weather permitting) available.
And here’s the fine print – please read carefully, because exhibitors must also meet the following state, Siskiyou County and Mount Shasta Recreation and Park District requirements. Unfortunately, we won’t be allowed to let you set up your booth if these are lacking.
- Food vendors must comply with county Health Department regulations. Most food vendors are aware of these; please contact us if you need assistance.
- People who sell things must first register with the State Department of Tax and Fee Administration to obtain a Seller’s Permit and understand laws requiring California sales tax collection and payment.
- After that, anyone selling merchandise or performing services at the event will also need a City of Mt. Shasta Business License. The fee is $16 per day and is payable upon application (more information below).
- Just standing around talking, no food or money involved? No problem, you only have to pay us for booth space!
The April 7 deadline to sign up for exhibitor booths has passed, we are now in our last minute mode. Anyone selling things MUST complete registration with the state and city before the event. The City of Mt. Shasta’s Finance Technician, Rhonda A. Monaghan tells us:
“The City requires the completed application and payment be received at the City no later than Friday, April 19, 2019. Any application received after that, cannot be accommodated. Licenses are required only for those persons/businesses who will be selling or collecting money from attendees at the event. A current California resale number from the State Board of Equalization is required for any retail sales.
To expedite licensing, please email the completed application back to the City at firstname.lastname@example.org . Upon receipt, I will call you back to obtain a credit card payment over the phone.
You may also place the application and check in the mail, but you MUST allow 7 days for it to arrive at the City.
I hope this helps and I wish you every success at the event.”
