Want to get Involved? Become a Vendor or Volunteer

Do you or your organization offer bicycle related products, services or information to Tacoma and the surrounding area? If so, please join us as a vendor. For-profit vendors register for $25 per 10'x10' outdoor booth space, and non-profit government agencies and community groups register for free. Vendors may register for up to four 10'x10' booth spaces.


Only selling 2-3 bikes or bike-related items? No need to register. Simply bring your bikes to the Bike Corral to sell them. You set the price. Interested parties will contact you using the cell phone number provided on the bike registration tag. Sellers should remain nearby to coordinate the transaction. Transactions take place directly between the seller and the buyer.
