Community Courtyard

Community Courtyard space is available!

Do you belong to a club, school, church, non-profit group, or other community organization? Having a booth for your organization at the Watermelon Festival’s Community Courtyard is a great way to promote your group. With approximately 20,000 people visiting the festival over the course of the weekend, a booth is a great way to meet the community – and more importantly, it’s a great way for the community to meet your group. Websites, newspaper ads, and fliers are great, but nothing is better than face to face interaction. Showcase your organization and the importance of your contributions to the community.

More Information

You are invited to have a booth at the 53rd Annual Watermelon Festival in our Community Courtyard as we grow to include many visitors from outside our own community.

Participants in the Courtyard are asked to pay a minimal fee to help us cover our expenses. If you need electricity, a 20 amp box will be provided by the Carnival operator. You will need to provide your own booth or canopy, tables, chairs, lights, electrical cords, and plugs. We would suggest you bring some type of floor covering as the area may be dusty this late in the summer.

Most of the spaces in the Courtyard will be under the trees where there is no grass. There will be a few on the grass just south of the Senior Citizen center where there is no shade. You may set up on Saturday before 8:00am. All vehicles must be off the Festival grounds one hour before the posted opening time of 10:00am on Saturday and Sunday.

If you come in later, you will need to hand carry your equipment and supplies into the park. There will be vehicle access to the space after the Festival closes each night, the Festival grounds are clear of customers and the Fire Marshall gives the OK. You may not drive onto the Festival grounds during the hours it is open for business. A nearby parking lot will be reserved for participants to allow access to the Festival.

The STLC strongly encourages you to use a watermelon theme in your decorations, activities & handouts. There will be professional security on site 24/7, but the Sunland-Tujunga Lions Club, the Rose Bowl, and/or the security personnel are not responsible for loss or theft from your booth or vehicle.

Please download and return application form by August 10 to reserve your space. You may pay for your space and electricity with your application or bring it with you when you check in. Registration will be faster if your are prepaid. We invite you to join with us in making this year’s Festival the best one ever! We are looking forward to your participation!
