What if if rains?

  • Bring a raincoat and a tent!  The event is rain or shine. 

    • A surprising number of people have showed up in past years despite downpours, and still had fun!  

When do I set-up?

  • Set up will be first come, first serve, starting at 8 am, and must be done by 11:45.  Break down does not start until the event ends at 6 pm, and vendors are not allowed to break down early (unless instructed to do so by an Unleashed staff member.) Further instructions will be sent closer to the event. 

  • Koka Booth Amphitheatre is open to the public when there is not a private event, so you may be able to visit the site prior to the event to get an idea of what it looks like (check the Koka Booth website for more details.)  

What are the limitations?

  • We will limit the number of same or competing vendors.  

  • As the host of this event is Unleashed, the Dog & Cat Store, and our customers expect a certain standard from us, we will only accept pet related goods and services that meet our standards and align with our philosophies. 

    • For trainers, boarders, etc. we support positive, non-aversive animal handling.   We recommend harnesses, treat training, clicker training, and do not support shock collars and other punitive training tools.   

    • For dog products, we require no wheat, corn, soy, byproducts, chemical or artificial ingredients.                          This applies to products for sale, as well as giveaways and handouts.  

    • For animal care professionals, we promote holistic and/or integrative care.  

    • Other limitations may apply.
