Earl Warren Showgrounds is at 3400 Calle Real.

The directions to the venue are as follows: Exit Highway 101 at the Las Positas exit and turn north toward the mountains. Pass straight through the first traffic lighted intersection at Calle Real and take the next left at the Earl Warren Showgrounds Gate A. Proceed straight along this road with the buildings on your left until you pass the RV parking lot. Just after the RV parking lot turn left and enter the vendor parking lot. The building on the left is the Warren Hall where the Festival is being held. 

Park and look for a volunteer with a clipboard. They will get you checked in and give you more information to help you become familiar with the venue and locate your booth. The map provided here and on the website also identify your booth location and number.

After you have unloaded, we ask that you please move your vehicle back into the vendor parking lot as soon as possible. This unloading and loading zone space is limited and we have 40+ vendors arriving.

Vendors must provide their own display.  Signage for booths that back up to a wall please use Command Brand hangers to hang, the rest will have pipe and drape which can be used to adhere signage.   No SALE signs are allowed.  Please feel free to bring your own items that will fit within your space.

No refunds for cancellations will be given after June 30, 2018. One business per booth. All artists must be self-representing and be present in their booth at all times. Creations must be made by the artist and there shall be no buying or selling of items not crafted by the artist(s). Only authentic, natural sea glass or ocean treasures and themes shall be used and sold at the event. Absolutely no dogs allowed in the venue.


This year our desire is to create an environmentally aware event by "going green". For you this means searching out packaging materials that are recycled or paper. We will not allow single use plastic bags.

At the event, you will notice some green changes we are making to lessen our environmental footprint. We know this is not only better for our environment but is also keeping true the recycled nature of our art.

Thank you for keeping "Green" in mind.
