2022 Redwood Writers at the Fair

  • Participating in the Fair is a HUGE benefit to all Redwood Writers Members. We make friends and develop contacts. We get lots of exposure! The Fair runs for 10 days, Aug. 4 - 14, 2022, but Redwood Writers will only have our booths there for 6 days, Aug. 5, 6, 7 and 12, 13, 14.
  • The RW booth will be in the Garrett Building, 1350 Bennett Valley Rd, Santa Rosa, near the Brookwood entrance and attached to the Kraft Building.
  • If you are a published author, you may sell books.
  • Each day we need 12 authors to sell their books and 2 volunteers for selling RW merchandise, or handing out RW material. Authors will be assigned to a table spot each day.  A Day Manager will also be there to ensure a smooth and successful event.
  • There is a $20 fee per author per day for published authors selling their books.

Please Note: SignUp Genius charges a service fee of 5% + $0.50. This will be added to your purchase at checkout.

There is no charge for RW Members who are there as volunteers staffing the RW Merchandising and Iinformation table. (RW is a Fair Sponsor and pays a fee to participate).

  • Authors may sign up for one OR MORE DAYS. You must arrive at 10:30 am. on Friday, and 11:30 am. on Saturday and Sunday, and stand in line so the manager can give you your seat number. We stop selling at 6 p.m. and put our books away.You work until 5:00 p.m. when we begin cleaning up the booth and putting things away.
  • All book selling authors, Day Manager and table volunteers will get free passes to the Fair. We will mail your pass for the first day you are scheduled to work. Passes for your other days will be handed out by the Day Manager.
  • You must pay for parking, $10 this year. Handicapped parking is immediately adjacent to the Brookwood St. entrance, but it is limited. Carpooling or drop-off is encouraged.
  • You may store your books and marketing materials in the nearby secure kitchen.
  • Deliver your books on a cart or dolly. You may store that as well in the kitchen. Clearly mark your book boxes.
  • You may not eat your lunch in the building or our booth. (It's the Fair's rule.) When you need to take a break, your tablemate will cover for you. The two restrooms are 10' from our booth (good for foot traffic!).
  • You won't be allowed in the building before 11:15 a.m.
  • There is wifi in the building for using Square and making phone calls. It's noisy and you may have to step outside.
  • Please help promote this event, our Redwood Writers, and your participation on all your social media outlets.
  • Seniors' Days are Fridays July 30 & Aug. 6.
  • Best wishes for selling lots of books and RW merchandise and for making 100s of new friends.
