Poker Run Information

The Cranberry Festival is not only a celebration of the cranberry harvest but also Bandon’s local merchants. The poker run was developed to encourage festival goers to visit your location and purchase your products in order to receive a card for their poker hand. At the end of the festival the prize pool is awarded to the person with the best poker hand. This is just one more way to promote our economy, by promoting our very own businesses, to a VERY captive audience!

How it works:

Simply click this link and fill out the form, and that is it! Once you submit your information, just sit back and wait. About 10 days prior to the festival, a festival staff person will pick up your payment and deliver your window poster, deck of playing cards, marking pen, and participant cards with instructions and rules. Then sell away, give the purchaser a participant card if you are their first stop, deal out a card for purchases, and record the card dealt on the purchaser’s participant card.

How much does it cost?

Each participating merchant contributes $20.00 to the prize pool which is then awarded to the winning poker hand.
