Welcome to ShrimpFest, Saturday May 27th & Sunday May 28th, 2017. 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 2009 drew approximately 12,000+ visitors and an equal size in 2010 and 2011. Shrimpfest took a year off in 2012 and returned strong in 2013. The site for the fair is in the location we began using in 2013. Shrimpfest’s current location is approximately 3 miles north of the old location. It is located 251 Hjelvicks Road (Brinnon, WA) north of the Yelvik General Store and south of Cove RV Park & Country Store on Highway 101. This is where highway 101 meets the north end of the Hood Canal. The current site has both water and mountain views.
The owner of the property has asked that no dogs be allowed. If you must travel with your dogs, we ask you maintain strict control over them and have them leashed at all times. Please respect this so we can count on using this location for years to come.
The Shrimpfest fairgrounds layout will be the same as it has since 2013 which proved fresh and different than past years. The current location has 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 may 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. 30 amp or 50 amp service is available for a $75 fee. 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:
Please fill out the application and send it along with your check by April 15th (Please note: VENDOR SELECTION BEGINS MARCH 1). 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.
