OVERVIEW 

ALL TENTS MUST BE SECURED AND WEIGHTED DOWN WITH A MINIMUM OF 30lb WEIGHTS ON ALL FOUR CORNERS. The tent should be secure enough to withstand any thunderstorms that are not uncommon this time of the year.

BREAK DOWN

During breakdown, which will occur on Sunday at the specified time, exhibitors by chance may not be able to park their vehicle right next to their booth space. Every attempt is made so exhibitors can get as close as they can to their booth space to load their vehicle. A handcart is recommended to assist exhibitors.

SET UP

Each exhibitor is assigned a set up time to prevent congestion on the festival streets. Included with the exhibitor acceptance package a specific set up time is given along with one parking permit. In order to have a successful set up for all exhibitors it is important to adhere to the arrival times and have all information ready available upon arrival. There will be additional festival vehicles and vendors who are arriving for set up around the same time as the craft vendors. Exhibitors who arrive late should be aware that the festival streets are closed to all vehicles at a designated time.

If exhibitors arrive after the streets are closed to vehicle traffic, exhibitors will have to park outside festival grounds and carry/cart materials to their assigned space. Upon arrival to the festival area exhibitors will be asked the booth number and then you will be directed to the booth location. Be prepared to unload all materials/supplies that are needed to set up the booth. Exhibitors will be asked to park their vehicles off festival grounds once all materials are unloaded. Festival marshals will assist in directing exhibitors where to park. Parking is within walking distance. Exhibitors then return to their booth to continue set up of their craft booth.

Exhibitors are to be prepared to have their exhibit ready for public viewing/shopping: Saturday by 10:00 a.m. and Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

PARKING

Parking is not allowed in the Festival area. We recommend arriving early to unload your booth items and then parking your car ASAP to ensure you have a parking space close to the festival.  Please see parking map on website for festival parking areas.  Towing is strictly enforced around the festival area so please be sure to park in a designated parking area.

OPENING TIMES & CLOSING TIMES

Booth displays are permitted to stay up Saturday night. All items must be enclosed within a tent with 4 sides and must be out of public view. The display and tent should be secured and weighted down and able to withstand a thunderstorm or high winds. The vendor is responsible for all items left overnight.

There will be a security guard present to help monitor the area overnight on Saturday.

WEATHER

The Wing and Rock Festival will not be cancelled in the case of inclement weather unless we are advised otherwise by government officials. Exhibitors are to be fully prepared to protect against adverse conditions, such as rain, wind, sun, heat, etc. If severe weather conditions persist, i.e., thunderstorm/lightning, the Festival will temporarily close down and then reopen. Vehicles will not be allowed in the Festival area during cloudbursts – please be prepared to protect your merchandise. Exhibitors are expected to reopen their booths as soon as possible once the weather has cleared and the Festival reopens. No refunds will be issued for inclement weather.
