The Park will be locked down after 8 PM on Friday. Vendors are expected to remain open until the closing of each day. Early tear-downs are prohibited, no exceptions. Each vendor will be given a site space and number. Do not set up elsewhere. Set up in the space layout only.
Because we want to ensure that our vendors achieve maximum sales, we will be limiting the number of vendors offering the same items to the consumers. FOOD VENDORS ONLY will be allowed to sell bottled water and sodas. When we have decided that we have sufficient vendors selling a particular array of items, no other vendor applications will be accepted. Those vendors not accepted will have their money refunded.
