Sun & Sea Festival organizers are seeking vendors and artisans to sell items at the one-day, family-friendly and no alcohol event. The vendor area at the Sun & Sea Festival will start at Pier Plaza and the adjacent beach and run along Seacoast Drive to Dunes Park.

“We are seeking quality vendors who are a good fit for our beach town,” said Shirley Nakawatase, event co-chair. And we have worked to provide a one-stop, easy online application where vendors can apply and pay for their booths.” Local Imperial Beach Businesses receive a 25 percent discount off the appropriate fee based on type of vendor booth and date of application.

All vendors can apply online at the Sun & Sea Festival website. Vendors with child-specific goods, please let us know as there will be a kids zone area. Vendors application can be found at http://sunandseafestival.com/vendor-application-request/
