Welcome to ShrimpFest, May 28th & 29th, 2011.  Emerald Towns Alliance will again be hosting this popular Arts, Crafts, Music and Food Fair in our small community of Brinnon, Washington.   The Memorial Day weekend and several other great events on the Olympic Peninsula bring thousands of visitors that travel along U.S. Highway 101.  We encourage you to send in your application early.  

The event in 2008 drew approximately 12,000+ visitors and an equal size in 2009 and 2010.    The  site for the fair will be the same as 2010, right along Highway 101, just south of the Brinnon General Store - on the east side of 101 in the grassy field next to the Dosewallips River.   The fairgrounds layout will be the same as 2010.  We will have the same expanded event and parking areas.  Electricity will again be available for some booths.    If your booth requires electricity, please make sure to reserve your booth early since we have a limited number of booths that can hook-up.  Please note that we do not have dedicated circuits for your use only.   If you have huge power requirements, we are not able to accommodate your needs.   The cost of power to a single/double booth is $40.00.  This allows you one 20amp circuit only - the equivalent of one household plug (NO EXCEPTIONS).  Additional power needs must be discussed with our board prior to acceptance at ShrimpFest.  Please review the section of the application that covers Booth and Electrical for additional requirements. 

Please join us in our festivities.  We are hoping to keep this a fun event and not overburden you with regulations.  The rules are stated on the accompanying ShrimpFest application; some items of particular importance are as follows:

  • Keep your booth and surrounding area clean of debris of all descriptions.  When you leave, please see that the area is cleared of trash. 

  • Vendors are only allowed ONE vehicle on the fairgrounds

  • Each vendor must provide their own booth, tables and canopy. There are no indoor facilities for our Arts, Crafts and Food Fair.

  • Each vendor should secure their booth with ties and or weights for wind.

  • Electricity is only available at selected sites.  There are no corner booths that have electricity. 

  • Portable toilets will be strategically located at the Fair area. 

  • Food-service-only trailers are permitted in the Fair area if they are self-contained.  If your food trailer has a tongue that extends out further than the allowance for your booth (each booth is exactly 10 x 10 feet) you must purchase a second booth to accommodate the extra length.  You should be prepared to supply us with the exact length of your trailer including the tongue.  You will need to supply the festival planners with an approximate arrival time for set up since these trailers require additional room to pull in.  Site  location will be on a first come first placed situation.   Food Booths must be set up at least one hour prior to festival opening. 

  • Food vendors are required by Jefferson County to obtain a Temporary Health Permit or a waiver from them.  They can be reached by phone at: 360.385.9400.  If you aren't sure if you need a permit for the food you are selling, it's better to check.    The Health Department comes to ShrimpFest and double checks permits - don't risk being shut-down.  We need a copy of this permit or waiver for our records prior to ShrimpFest. Please mail to ShrimpFest, PO Box 323, Brinnon, WA 98320.  We reserve the right to limit the number of food service vendors selling the same products. 

  • Food vendors must supply their own water.  The water on site is not from an approved well for your booth.   Please do not assume that you can hook up to this system if you managed to hook up to it in the past.  

  • ShrimpFest provides a professional security guard from 8:30 Friday night until 5:30am Saturday and again from 7pm Saturday night to 7am Sunday morning but we can not be held responsible for damage, theft or any other loss. 

  • You can't camp in the Fair area.  Motor homes or trailers will not be allowed to camp on festival grounds.  This is a DAY USE PARK and the park prohibits overnight camping.   The Dosewallips State Park is nearby, as well as several U.S. Forest Service campgrounds.  We encourage you to make your camping arrangements as soon as possible, due to the high use of the parks during the holiday.  There are also several bed and breakfast inns and a small motel in the area.  We also have Cove RV Park and Country Store  (360.796.4723) and they have many spaces available for your RV/Camper.  Halfway RV is also a possibility (360)796-0301.   Most of the available options are listed on our "Local Lodging and Maps" page.

Please fill out the application and send it along with your check by April 15th. Mail your completed application to ShrimpFest  PO Box 323, Brinnon, WA  98320.     Incomplete applications will be rejected.  We will notify you via email once we approve your application.  No letters of acceptance will be sent out unless you send us a stamped self addressed envelope with your application.  We encourage you to supply your email address so we may stay in contact with you. These email addresses will not be given to any person or organization other than our own. 
Got a question? Call Debbie at (360)796-4809 or email us at shrimpfest @ hotmail.com.
(please no spam or chain letters!)

We look forward to seeing you at our Hood Canal ShrimpFest!
