Aloha, Talofa, Iorana and welcome to our “Weekend in Polynesia” Event.  Our weekend promises to be one that reflects the best of Polynesia – truly bringing the islands together. We have scheduled 2 action packed days that will take you to the islands of Hawaii, Tahiti, Samoa and all of Polynesia; we cordially invite you to be a part of it.

Please carefully read the following Guidelines for Vendors. It contains details that will make our event a successful one.  This year the WIP Event will demonstrate we are having an impact on the community. Our attendance is expected to grow again this year and we are experiencing an influx of many new-vendors who are looking forward to participate in these festivities.

Our food booths are already sold out. Those who have already deposited and reserved at last year’s event, your space is secured.

Please fill out the required forms and return to us immediately.  Space is limited and will be granted on a first come first serve basis. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Philip Yandall at (562) 786-4737
