Setup Information

• You must be set up by 12:00pm (noon) and set up before 5:00 PM Friday June 23, 2017 but you may set up the Tuesday or Wednesday prior to the actual Fair. Since the Fair Site is still a construction zone during that week, for safety and expediency, we cannot allow set up earlier than that, as requested by the Fairís Site Coordinators .
• Vendor location on The Site is pre-arranged. Please, contact Crafts Co-Cordinators or representative on-site when you arrive. Do not set up before you do check in with them; you will also receive your wristbands at that time. Gaelyn is our On Site Gal!
Hours: Vendors should be open by 10 AM and stay open until at least 7PM during Fair, but you may be open longer than that if you wish. It is to your benefit to be open as much as you can however, please be aware and respectful that we have a ban on use of generators during overnight hours.
• Electrical power is not supplied to Artisans’ Alley. You need to bring your own generator, etc; please ensure it is quiet and as environmentally clean as possible, to protect our site, air quality, and our patrons. Use of your own solar lights is encouraged, to reduce the amount of time that your own generator needs to be operating. Thank you for your cooperation.
