By connecting people, we preserve arts + culture, realize our impact on the local economy + provide for the well-being of the people that keep these ideals alive. HEAD WEST is a platform to embrace all things creative in people and product that bring positivity + good vibes into all of our lives.
Participant cost is based on booth size:
10' x 10' full booth = $125
10’ x 20’ double booth = $200
Shared Full Booths are available, and will require additional details during the application process. There is no need for each vendor to submit their own application, as only one vendor should submit and include their shared participant in the application info.
Participants are required to provide their own tables, displays and fixtures. For outdoor markets, the participant is REQUIRED to provide their own 10’x10’ canopy tent, with weights. This is mandatory, as there will be no tents available day-of. Utilize sellers such as AMAZON for the most affordable canopy tents, with white or beige canvas top. Same requirement applies for a 10’ x 20’ booth, unless you are a mobile vehicle/trailer participant.
All outdoor HEAD WEST markets are held rain or shine. In cases of inclement weather, ensure you come prepared with canopy tent walls, tarps and other necessities to protect you, your shoppers and your product against the elements. Booth fees will only be refunded if a market is cancelled in an entirety due to an emergency.
Participants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible, as there are limited booth spaces available during each event date. Applications are open on a rolling basis, with participants being notified upon their acceptance.
There are no refunds or booth credits for vendor cancellations after submission of the market application + booth fee, regardless of when an acceptance is given.
Participants that are not accepted, will receive a full refund.
Old Oakland is located in Downtown Oakland, California.
