Hey MFG Fans,
Seattle Parks has a policy to charge for any corporate logos displayed during a permitted event (like a cyclocross race) at a Seattle Park. This applies to MFG and our logos as well as anyone at our event.
So, if you have a team tent with a corporate logo, like Taco Time or Recycled Cycles and you plan to attend either the Magnuson Park race this weekend or Woodland Park on Nov 20, you either need to pay the fee (contact us and we’ll arrange payment to the city) or cover up your logo.
Yes, we agree this feels like extortion. Please feel free to write the City of Seattle and/or the Seattle Parks Department to voice your complaint. You might dig up some contact info here: Contact Us – Parks | seattle.gov
See the fee structure below.
