  • Re-entry to the street is at the same entrances as in the morning Load-In. NO EXCEPTIONS!

  • Please Remember….One-Way flow of traffic at all times to alleviate any traffic jams.

A few tips to help you find your booth:

  • Booths are numbered in 10' increments with #1 starting at Main Street and increasing towards Venice Blvd.  
  • Odd numbered booth numbers correspond with the odd number side of the street addresses.
  • Even booth numbers are on the even side of street addresses.
  • A placard will be on each booth with the Vendor's name and booth number for easy identification.

Please review the attached booth assignment roster for your booth assignment and if you paid for an end space, make sure you have "end space" next to your company name.  

For those that had a special booth placement request , we made every effort to accommodate your request.  If you PAID the additional $125 fee and "'End Space" is not indicated, please contact Kim at kim@abbotkinney.org or 310-396-3772.  

We are excited to announce we will have a "Vendor Information " booth to assist with any problems in front of 1301 Abbot Kinney Blvd (corner of Santa Clara & Abbot Kinney).  If you have any problems with your booth, canopy, etc. please come to this location so we can more efficiently assist you. If you need to reach someone festival day, call 310-396-3772.

Also, just a friendly reminder about your booth presentation.  We photograph each vendor's booth and review them for your future participation.  Please maintain the integrity of your booth to mirror the image of your brand.  We discourage handwritten signs, cardboard boxes, merchandise dumped into bins, etc.  

Don't forget to spread the word!
