Artist Booth Operations
Artists are required to have personnel present to operate their booths continuously during the official operating hours of the show. No vendor may open later or close earlier without prior approval of Festival Manager. In case of inclement weather or other problems, Festival Manager will determine if official operating hours should be shortened. Artists who leave the show prior to closing hurt the success of neighboring artists. Artists who leave early will not be invited to return to future shows.
An application is a commitment to show. If your cancellation (in writing) is received before June 5, your registration fee will be returned to you minus a $25.00 cancellation fee. No refunds will be made after June 5.
Each exhibitor must provide a display booth and racks or tables for his or her work to be properly displayed outside on grass or pavement (depending on space assignment). Please be prepared for inclement weather conditions with rain covers and appropriate tie-down or weights. Each booth is limited to 100 square feet (10x10) of display space. All tables must be draped to the ground. Boxes and packing crates must not be visible. Poor appearance of an exhibit may be grounds for rejection. Generators are not allowed.
