Space is available for vendors to sell arts and crafts, food and/or general merchandise for a minimal $15 fee. Yakama Nation agencies, non-profit organizations and student clubs (from Heritage University, area high schools or other colleges or universities) can host informational or vendor booths at no charge. Venders are responsible for providing their own canopy (recommended). The university will supply 1 table and two chairs for each 10’ x 10’ space. Additional tables and chairs may be available, but need to be reserved in advance. Limited electricity is available on a first-come, first-serve basis and needs to be reserved in advance.
Arts and crafts vendors need to comply with the American Indian Arts and Crafts Act. Only Native made items can be labeled as such. Non-Native made items can be sold but cannot be represented as Native made. Indian Arts and Crafts Act: https://www.doi.gov/iacb/act
Food vendors must comply with Yakima Health Department food safety rules and regulations. A food handler card is required by the County. Health Department officials have come to our past powwows and have enforced food safety rules. Yakima County Food Handlers Card: https://www.yakimacounty.us/323/Food-Handler-Card
