Become A Sponsor Become A Vendor




2019’s event was a blast due to sponsorship’s, volunteers, and marketing efforts by our dedicated team. Our event drew over 2,000 patrons, 9 food vendors, and 7 bands. Food vendors sold out multiple times due to attendance. This past year we had cosplayers from PNW Imperial Outlanders walking around interacting with patrons and doing photo ops. This year we project to entertain over 2,000 attendees, 15+ food vendors, beer gardens, and 4 multi-genre bands. We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to host this event again in the beautiful city of Sunnyside, WA. We hope to see everyone there!
