I don’t have an exhibitor space. Can I hand out fliers, sign people up to support my cause, or sell merchandise?
No. Unless you have an exhibitor space at SacPride, you cannot solicit or sell anything in any way on festival grounds. Violation of these rules will result in immediate and permanent eviction from the festival by the Sacramento Police Department. Sales of any merchandise outside of booths are prohibited.
Do you accept exhibitor applications from marijuana dispensaries?
SacPride is grateful for the support of the cannabis industry. New rules for public festivals are extremely strict and do not allow marijuana business to publicly display marketing materials at festivals, making participation at the festival impractical as well as unnecessarily risky for business licenses.
