Where are SF Bazaar vendors located in the venue? 

jpop 2016 map_overview-2
SF Bazaar pop up marketplace will be conveniently placed outside at the entrance of the ticketed areas of J-POP Festival. This means that ALL foot traffic will pass by our booths in order to proceed to the ticketed area and you also will benefit from the general public who are visiting Fort Mason that weekend!

Will there be music/live performances? 
There will be music playing throughout the day with occasional programs like fashion shows and speakers. But all live music performances are scheduled indoors. We collected feedback from 2015 and being inside the pavilion only led to issues with speaking with your customers. The 2016 location has solved this issue!

Is internet access available? 
Unfortunately we cannot offer wifi at this time, but we find most vendors are able to accept payments through mobile processing services.

What is your refund policy? 
SF Bazaar sets its refund policy differently for each show based on the policies of our venue/partners. If a vendor requests to withdraw from J-POP SUMMIT  before June 22nd 2016, they will be refunded 90% of the vendor fee. No refunds will be issued after the deadline of June 22nd 2016. J-POP SUMMIT reserves the right to cancel the SF Bazaar Marketplace at any time. If a cancellation occurs, the vendor will receive 100% of their vendor fee back.

$400 Booth Fee for Both Days, includes tent rental and 1 table, 2 chairs
$300 with your own 10×10 tent and 1 table, 2 chairs
