CHECK IN

Sponsors and vendors can arrive and set up any time between 10 AM and 11 PM Thurs-Sun.  If you set up on Thursday or between 10 AM and 12 PM Fri-Sun you will have vehicle access to all Vendor locations – otherwise you will have a short walk to carry gear.  You are welcome to vend as early or late as you like.

Unless we've specifically made other arrangements with you, each sponsor and vendor will receive two to four weekend wristbands based on your sponsor/vendor tier.  Please review our Check In List to review and edit the names of your crew. 

Check in at the Main Gate to receive your wristbands.  If you have camping gear, you can drop it off at the Camping Drop Off area.  $50 Vendors will drop vending gear off next to their Vending area, then proceed to Vendor Parking.  $100 and Prime Vendors have vehicle access to their Vending areas on Thursday and from 10 AM to 12 PM Fri-Sun – otherwise please park in the Vendor Parking area and walk your gear to your Vending area.

FAQ

  • Vendor spaces are approximately 10' x 10' ("approximately" meaning there's plenty of space and therefore flexibility, but if your tent is obviously oversized or you have two pop-ups we will ask you to pay for a second space).

  • Vendors must supply their own tent, booth, table, chairs, etc.

  • You are welcome to camp at your vendor space.  If you have a vehicle, RV, camper, etc. to sleep in please park and camp in the designated vehicle camping area.

  • Prime Vendors will have low-wattage use electricity (i.e. LED lights, phone chargers).  No microwaves, computers, deep fryers, hair dryers, etc.  Non-Prime Vendors should bring battery-powered LED lights if they want to be visible at night (like these).  RPM is a late-night crowd - activities and games will be happening all night, and the bar will be open until 1 AM, so don't discount the later hours.

  • Generators will ONLY be allowed if they are quiet (under 65 dB).  We recommend Honda EU series.
