The festival officially begins at 12:00pm, but we expect people to start showing up as early as 11:30am

(We understand if you need to leave early, but we will not be able to provide any assistance to you before 5pm.) The festival is officially over at 5pm
Vendors and Exhibitors will enter from the Bee St and Washington St park entrance. Go to the front parking area near Victory Drive to check in. Look for Vendor Check In sign.
PLEASE PARK YOUR VEHICLE FIRST AND THEN PROCEED TO THE CHECK-IN TABLE.
Parking is first come, first serve. We ask that everyone park in the area designated on the map and enter via the labeled entrances. If you do not park in the designated area, we will not be able to provide any unloading assistance to you.
After you have parked, please visit the Check In table. At check in, you can request any additional assistance with moving your materials and learn more about what areas are available for you to setup your tent.
EVERYONE MUST CHECK IN UPON ARRIVAL, BEFORE SETTING UP.
There will NOT be any tent assignments, your location will be determined on a first come, first serve basis. But you MUST still check in first, before proceeding to your space.
THERE ARE SPECIFIC ASSIGNED SPACES FOR SPONSORS, CHILDREN AREA VENDORS AND THOSE WHO NEED ELECTRICITY.
IF YOU DO NOT SET UP IN THE CORRECT PLACE, YOU WILL BE ASKED TO MOVE.
UNLOADING AND SETUP:
We recommend coming as early as possible to set up.
We will have volunteers & golf carts with trailers to assist you in transporting your materials!
Volunteers will be on hand to direct you to your designated area after you have checked in.
If you need additional assistance in setting up or moving your materials, volunteers will be available.
We only have a very limited number of volunteers available. Please only request assistance if it is absolutely necessary.
We ask that everyone stay within their designated areas and not trade spaces or ask to be moved from their designated area unless absolutely necessary.
All exhibitors and vendors must be completely setup by 11:30am

You will receive a questionnaire. This questionnaire will help us greatly in improving next year’s festival and your input is truly appreciated.
LOST & FOUND will be located at the information tent closest to the food vendors and stage.
EMERGENCY MEDICAL OR POLICE ASSISTANCE can also be requested at any info tent.
FEES and CONTRIBUTIONS:
NO FEES WILL BE COLLECTED AT THE FESTIVAL. PLEASE BE SURE TO PAY YOUR FEES BY WEDNESDAY. This festival is a community effort and any additional financial support you may be able to contribute is greatly appreciated and helps offset the cost of such a tremendous effort.
