You are invited to apply for a vendor spot in the 2017 North American Sand Soccer Championships - the largest weekend beach soccer festival in the United States, held in Virginia Beach, VA. Last year’s event included over 1000 teams with 10,000 participants and over 75,000 spectators and beachgoers and was the site of the Pro-Beach U.S. National Men’s Finals in a 3,000 seat stadium located on the sand at 24th Street. This year’s festival, scheduled for June 9-11, will be between 12th Street and 37th Street and will feature events such as the North American Beach Wrestling Championships, Beach Lacrosse, Coed Beach Flag Football, Beach Field Hockey, and musical entertainment.
The Championships will again offer food vendor, retail and marketing sites this year, strategically placed in high profile areas, offering a mix of product categories. You are invited to submit your application as a concessionaire at this “blast in the sand.”
To be considered for one of our selective vendor spots, you must submit a completed application and deposit of $500.00 (per vendor location) by April 15th, 2017. Any application not accepted will be returned with original check. Checks for all accepted applications will be deposited upon confirmation of acceptance. If you fail to participate once you are accepted, due to no fault of NASSC, your deposit will not be refunded.
Important information for 2017!!!
The City of Virginia Beach last year enacted MAJOR food and merchandise vendor policy changes for Oceanfront events. The new regulations are outlined within this application. The new policy, overseen by the City’s Resort Management Office (RMO) and Fire Marshall’s Office (FMO), significantly affects vendors who COOK food at the event.
FOOD VENDORS CAN COOK ON THE SAND, BUT NEED A PLATFORM TO SUPPORT – SEE INFORMATION ATTACHED ON DOWNLOADABLE PDF SHEETS.
