Okanogan Family Faire Health Pledge:

• Show symptoms of COVID-19; or
• You have been in close contact (within six feet for 15 cumulative minutes over a 24-hour period) with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 14 days; or

**Proof of Vaccination/Negative Covid-19 Test and Masks  will not be required for entry**

The Faire attracts folks from all over the northwest and beyond. You'll find folks trading goods, playing music, sharing arts and crafts, dancing and singing. Stage happenings, activities in our youth play areas and shopping an array of displays brought by our numerous vendors make it a fantastic visit.

No Cell Service / So Plan Ahead

If the site fills, the gate will be closed to entry, whatever the day or hour. Know this is a possibility when planning rides with others before or after you. Have a dedicated place and time that you're meeting up. Buy all necessary supplies and make that phone call before you lose service.

No Unaccompanied Minors

If you are under 18 we can't let you in without a parent or legal guardian. Be prepared to show identification at the gate.


Respect Our Neighbors

If you think you will arrive before or after gate hours, plan to camp somewhere along the way. You will not be permitted to come up the road or onto any part of the Faire property, including the day parking lot. Please respect our neighbors and town by not camping in unauthorized places.

Unscheduled Gate Closures?

Possible, due to:

1, Safety Concerns - 2, Security Concerns - 3, Capacity Reached

If the site fills, the gate will be closed to incoming traffic, whatever the day or hour.
Know that closure is a possibility when planning rides home with people who arrive after you.

Trash Collection/Food Vendors

We encourage healthy and sustainable businesses who are concerned for the safety and health of all faire goers, as well as the planet. While it is not a requirement, we prefer organic, locally sourced or all natural foodstuff to be sold and/or bartered there. If selling food of any sort, it is required you provide garbage and recycling receptacles outside your booth for all faire attendants to use.  Please sort out all recyclables.


Service Animals Only

Please be aware of Washington State laws about service animals! Service dogs are trained to perform tasks for the benefit of individuals with physical or mental disabilities such as guiding the blind, alerting the deaf, as well as people prone to seizures or other tasks directly related to a disability. Under the American with Disabilities Act, animals whose sole purpose is to provide comfort, companionship, or emotional support do not qualify as service animals and they are not allowed in the Faire. We ask all service dogs check in at the gate. Non-approved dogs will be turned away at the gate. There are multiple kennels and shelters near by. If you need a copy of the available places, locally, to board your pets, feel free to contact us. Our Faire manager, security officials or Board of Director president will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

No Generators

Bring a good supply of ice to keep your food cold. Ice will be available for sale on location as needed throughout the weekend. Check at office for ice location and plan your cooking and lighting w/o a generator (Solar ok).

No Controlled Substance or Alcohol Sales

We do not allow the sales of illegal controlled subtances or alcohol and we will be removing these items and perpetrators.

Restricted Trading Items

No Alcoholic Beverage Sales

If we see it, you will be asked to leave.

No Glow Sticks

Glow stick type products have toxic fluids that leak out and leach into our earth.

No Plastic Pellets

Plastic pellets get left behind and are difficult to collect. These become litter that leach into our earth.

No Open Display of Paraphernalia

This includes any object designed or intended for use of any controlled substance.

Automotive Care

If you have automotive problems like over-heating, weak battery, poor tires or starting issues, please repair them before you leave home. The road to the Barter Faire site is a steep dirt grade with few turnouts. A defective vehicle creates problems for all incoming and outgoing traffic.
