1. On the day of the event, it is CASH ONLY!
2. Each booth gets a TOTAL OF 2 TICKETS. That includes YOU and one other. If you have a helper, you will need to pay full price for them. This is a fundraiser so everyone needs to pay. Even if someone is there to help you unload, everyone who walks in that door must be paid for.
3. Please DO NOT ASK for free tickets. Every ticket we give away is less funds going to support the museum.
4. There is NO WILL CALL. Everyone will need their ticket to enter. There is NO LIST.
5. VENDORS need to arrive by 8:15 AM on Saturday, August 6. You will have 3 hours to set up. Doors open at 11.
6. All booths are numbered on the layout so please don’t switch booths.
7. Electricity is free, but you must bring an extension cord.
8. YOU WILL NEED TO BRING A TABLE CLOTH. They do not provide one. Its 8-foot tables
9. Do not come the night before to set up. We only have a few hours to put up the pipe and drape
10. There will be 2 food trucks outside. Tacos and hotdogs.
11. You will have 2 chairs.
12. There is parking on the premises. It is only $6. We do not reimburse or validate parking.
13. There is an ATM across the street, but it’s an 8-minute walk.
14. These are much bigger booths than last year. We spaced them out because of covid. So yes, you can breathe this time.
15. No masks are required.
16. There are NO REFUNDS, period. If you have to cancel, you will either move your booth selection to the next year or allow your purchase to be a tax deduction for the museum.
17. If you do really well, consider donating a little to the museum on your way out.
18. Jenny Deahl is the coordinator for the event, so please do not ask for Michael Matsuda to come to the front. He’s helping run the inside.
19. Michael trusts fully in his staff so as he says, “My staff is always right, no matter the argument. I will take their side only.”
20. BE NICE when you arrive. It is my wife at the door and she tells me everyone who is a jerk to her. We are not perfect, things will go wrong, but please be patient. This event is run by volunteers who give of their time to help you.
As President Kennedy noted, sort of, “Ask not, what the museum can do for you, ask what you can do for the museum”

Dragonfest is a wonderful event and this year, sponsorship by Burbank is no longer available so we are paying for the whole thing. Please be generous, become a sponsor or consider paying a little extra at the door. We want to keep this event alive.

Many thanks, Michael Matsuda
