REMINDER: There is no electricity available for any vendors

All vendors must check in with area manager when you arrive. You cannot set up without checking in with the manager.

All vendors will drive into the park! Stay to the right of the driving path. The driving path does one big loop in the park. You will keep driving towards the back of the park, towards the baseball field. As the driving path starts to drive down the hill towards the entrance, you will need to look for your area for set up.

Crafters and gift vendors: Your area will be next to the baseball field, against the fence. (If the amphitheater is to your back, your set up area is to the left of the baseball field)
Craft area manager: Lucille Bentley

Food vendors: You will drive past the baseball field, and there will be a small road to your left, in between the baseball field and the amphitheater. You will continue to drive on this narrow road to set up in the left side of the wooded area, which is located to the left side of the amphitheater. If you have past the amphitheater, and you are headed back out of the park, then you have gone too far.
Food vendor manager: Celeste Gasparre

Booth display overview: If you are a vendor that requested electricity, then you should have 3 sides of your booth available to walk by traffic.  All vendors that are set up against the glass railing will need to set up a 5’ x 20” display, with their back against the railing. Your booth cannot touch the glass, to prevent merchandise falling over the railing.

If you are unable to secure a new skirting, then one will be provided for you for a $10 rental fee per tablecloth.

Handcrafted items: We will be doing on site jury process during the show to verify that items are handcrafted. Any vendor that signs up with handcrafted items, MUST BE PRESENTING 100% handcrafted items by the exhibitor. Any items listed as handcrafted, that are not handcrafted, will be asked to remove these items, or you will have to pay an additional $30 to have these items on your table. This procedure must be enforced; to be fair to the vendors displaying 100% handcrafted items. We are also asking that each vendor help us in this procedure. If you are aware of items that are not handcrafted, please let the show management know this. We appreciate everyone's cooperation with this.
