Simply download and complete the Walk of the Stars Nomination Form from our official website at www.walkofthestars.com. You will need the nominees permission to proceed with the nomination.
Anyone can nominate, including fans, as long as the nominee or their management agrees to the nomination. The nomination application must include a letter of agreement from the nominee or their representative, or else the committee will not accept the application.
The cost of a star on the Walk of the Stars is $15,000, and a down payment of $5,000 is required to scout the location and schedule the date and time for the dedication ceremony.
Please note that prices are subject to change.
The price of the star covers the creation, installation, and maintenance of the granite star, the Walk of the Stars dedication ceremony production, an honoree star replica, a press release and marketing on social media, and an honorary day proclamation from the City of Palm Springs.
Once approved, fundraising is allowed, but fundraising cannot be done on behalf of a nominee until the Walk of the Stars Committee approves the nomination.
Please note that the deposit is not due until after a nomination is approved by the committee.
Yes, a deceased person can be nominated for a star on the Walk of the Stars, but the family of the nominee should be considered if looking to be nominated immediately.
The earliest that a ceremony can be scheduled is three months after acceptance as this allows enough time for the star to be ordered and installed. Recipients have up to two years to schedule their ceremony, so they can choose a date that is convenient for them within that time frame.
We hold dedication ceremonies between October and May. We avoid scheduling ceremonies between May 15 and September 30 to ensure everyone's comfort. We can hold up to one ceremony per week if necessary, and we avoid scheduling ceremonies on holidays and weekends.
The star recipient or their sponsor, along with the Walk of the Stars Palm Springs Program Director, work together to choose a preferred location upon acceptance.
We strive to have each nomination category represented by an expertise, along with a number of respected community members. Each are carefully selected based on their knowledge and experience in their respective fields, as well as their commitment to Palm Springs and the Walk of the Stars program.
No, the committee only accepts official Walk of the Stars applications submitted to the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce. Signatures, phone calls, emails, and petitions will not be accepted.
The committee coordinates voting at least once each season, with an average of 6 to 12 stars selected and dedicated each season. A new season begins in October of each year.
The application is effective for two years. If after two years, the nominee is still not selected, the applicant can file a new application or send a letter requesting that the application be reinstated. Updates on the recipients are accepted and encouraged.
The stars are designed to face in different directions so that people walking in either direction can easily see them. This allows visitors to easily find and admire their favorite stars on the Walk of the Stars.
The stars are made of high-quality imported granite, which provides a durable and long-lasting material to honor the contributions of individuals on the Walk of the Stars.
Absolutely! Walk of the Stars ceremonies are free and open to the public, with a public viewing area set up for all to enjoy.
