Partner Form

Thank you for your interest in partnering with Friends of Waterfront Seattle. Complete and submit this application to let us know about your business or independent contractor profile. If we have opportunities that fit with your business, we will reach out to you. Thank you!
Friends of Waterfront Seattle (FWS or “Friends”), along with community partners, hosts a series of events at Pier 62.

Onboarding and scheduling for the 2023 programming season has concluded. While we do not have immediate opportunities available, we appreciate having your information on file so that we may reach out next spring about the 2024 programming season.

Please note that businesses may sell retail goods or food (conditions apply). Retail items that are likely to sell best will be those that cost $25 or less and are highly portable. Food concessionaires are encouraged to offer drinks as well as food.

The current list may not encompass all 2023 events with available spots for vendors. Selecting a date does not guarantee you a spot. But we will keep your information for other opportunities that may arise. Thank you!
