Gita Nagari Ratha Yatra - an Update

by ISKCON Gita Nagari

Posted June 30, 2010

Gita Nagari's special country Ratha Yatra is being held on Saturday, July 31, 2010. If you are thinking about vending again this year, outlined below is some information, which will help facilitate you.

Registration and Set-up

The temple is asking for a $20.00 set-up fee to vend at the Ratha Yatra and 15% of your gross sales for Sri Sri Radha Damodara. Please mail your payment by July 15th at the latest. Payments have to be made in advance. If you have your own table, please let us know so that we do not have to hire one for you, also do bring your own pop-up tent. By the same token if you need a table let us know in a timely manner so that we can provide one for you.

This year all activities will be held around the garden/barn area. Spaces will be occupied on a first come basis. Set-up begins at 8:30 am and breakdown should begin by 6:30 pm at the latest. You are responsible for cleaning your area. We will provide trash bags for your convenience. Since the designated vendor area is not particularly shady, it is imperative that you have either a tent or a large umbrella to shade you from the weather. Please note: Since our food court pays for the festival expenses, no other prasadam vendors will be allowed.

All cars will be directed to the parking area. Vendors are requested to unload as quickly as possible and park their vehicle in the designated area. Handicapped parking will be provided.

Please let us know how we can serve you as we all come together to celebrate this wonderful pastime of Lord Jagannatha.
