2019 County Fair

2019 fair theme

"Book It" to the Fair!

Once again, Redwood Writers will have a booth all 11 days of the Sonoma County Fair!

An opportunity for RW MEMBERS ONLY!

On behalf of our members and to keep participation costs at a minimum, Redwood Writers subsidizes this event by paying $1,500 to the fair.

Participating in the Fair is a HUGE benefit to both Redwood Writers and members. We make friends, develop contacts, and sell books. We get lots of exposure!

  • AUTHORS

    Published RW authors are encouraged to sign up to sell their books during the days they participate.

  • VENDORS

    Vendors listed in the RW Member Professional Services directory are invited to promote their author, marketing, and publishing services.

  • VOLUNTEERS

    Even if you haven't published a book, we encourage you to work at our merchandise and handouts table or greeter table.

SIGNUPS ARE OPEN AND FILLING FAST!

Members are invited to sign up for up to five full-day shifts. If you are interested in signing up for additional days, send an email to [email protected]. Regardless of the number of days you sign up to work, authors and Member Professional Services vendors pay a one-time fee of $22*.

*There is NO FEE for volunteers.

Once you submit your fee, you will be able to sign up for one or more days.

During the 11-day fair, there are 80 slots total for authors (8/day), and 22 slots for volunteers (2/day) who will be at the RW merchandise table and act as a greeter.

Tables:

The Redwood Writers booth will include several tables for our members to promote and sell their books and/or author services. Depending upon the number of signups for each day, we expect each table will display two or three members.

Display your books, advertising materials, promotional items, and so on. If you are selling items, we suggest that you have a Seller's Permit. (CLICK HERE to visit The Board of Equalization for more information regarding obtaining a seller's permit.)

Registrants will be responsible for their own sales (cash, credit, and so on).

Sign up to volunteer!

Each day, we need two volunteers. A table will sell RW anthologies and merchandise, and promote the club. We invite any members to volunteer to work at this table with a board member, help manage the booth, and assist our author and vendor speakers.

All volunteers receive a FREE entry ticket.
