General Rules & Information:

Booth Participation: OutSpokane reserves the right to review and/or refuse any request for a booth space at the Rainbow Festival. Booths: Each booth space is approximately 10ft x 10ft. See above for booth fees. OutSpokane does NOT supply canopies.
Best Practices: OutSpokane will bring the community to the Rainbow Festival but it is up to you to encourage the community to visit your booth. We suggest advertising and letting the community know that your booth will be setup during the Rainbow Festival. Provide some kind of activity to create a draw to your booth. Do a give away or raffle, be colorful, and smile. Tables & Chairs: Each booth will come with (1) 8ft x 2ft table and (2) chairs. Your table and chairs should already be in your booth space when you arrive. Additional tables and chairs are not available beyond what is provided with the booth. You are welcome to provide your own additional tables and chairs. Please provide your own table cover, paper weights and information stands to display your literature or goods.
Canopies: We do not rent nor have available Tents/Canopies so please bring one. If you don’t own one and want to rent one please use our preferred provider Event Rents. Mention OutSpokane or the INBA to get a 10% discount on the rental fee. Canopies are also available for purchase from most local department stores, warehouse stores, or home improvement stores. General Info: Participants are not allowed to sell or give away food or water, there are vendors that the Parks Department provides for food and water sales. A dish of candy is OK, but nothing more. Selling Raffle tickets is considered gambling which is not allowed in Riverfront Park. Raffle tickets or other items can be solicited for donation only. Please let us know if you’d like your raffle winners announced from the stage.
Vehicles: We are still working with Riverfront Park to address bringing vehicles into the park for setup. As we get additional information we will post it here. We will also let you know when we notify you about your booth location. Parade: The parade kicks off at 12:00 noon. Participants must be sure all materials are secured on your table with weights if the wind kicks up. Make plans for someone to watch your table if you have merchandise and are participating in the parade. OutSpokane will not be responsible for any stolen or missing merchandise or information left unattended.
Commercial Vendors: Commercial vendors that are selling anything the day of the Rainbow Festival must have a business license from the City of Spokane. If you are not selling anything the day of the Rainbow Festival you are not required to have a business license. Non-profits: Distribution of informational material must be the main focus of your space. You may not sell items, but you may have items available in exchange for a donation. These items cannot be the major focus of your space. Raffle tickets can only be offered for a donation. If you would like to sell items for your organization, please get a business license and register as a commercial business.
Weather: OutSpokane has no control over the weather and does NOT supply canopies so remember to bring some kind of protection for your bodies and tables. Come rain, wind, or shine, Pride will go on.

Food: You may want to consider bringing a meal or snack for yourself as well as something to drink. There will be the usual park food vendors and, of course, Riverpark Square is near the park.

Questions or Special Needs: If you have other questions, special needs, or special requirements, please contact us at info@outspokane.org or note it on the registration page.
