Thank you for your interest in being a vendor at the 2017 Santa Cruz Pride Festival. Please review this entire page carefully. It has information you need to know.
If you wish to have a booth, please complete all 3 steps:

- Determine if you need a Seller's Permit.
- Review Booth Rules.
- Purchase your booth space on line (including the Additional Vendor Information)
1.1 Day Use FEE
The City of Santa Cruz charges a day use fee for selling items on the streets. This fee is 10% of sales (5% for non-profits). Santa Cruz Pride is required to collect and vendors are required to submit this fee. Vendors will be given a ledger and envelope to track this fee and submit payment at the end of the festival.
This fee is in addition to the current (8.75% at this writing) sales tax that each vendor must calculate and submit on their own to the state as part of their sellers permit.
1.2 Seller's Permit
Vendors who are selling taxable items at their booth are required to obtain a sellers permit from the California State Board of Equalization (BOE). Vendors will be asked for their permit information when submitting their application. Without proof of permit, vendors will be unable to sell anything at the festival. We strongly suggest that this be obtained before submitting an application, as our booth fee is non-refundable. Sellers permits can be obtained using the following website:
