    *ADDITIONAL RULES for Food Vendors:
    • Only food vendor spaces are available
    • Returning vendors need to apply by April 1st to guarantee the same spot as last year.
    • Spaces: your 10'x10' tent, truck, or trailer & hitch plus 4' of clearance (2' of clearance on each side) = 14'x14' total space paid for
    • Additional space may be purchased. Please contact us if you need more than 14'x14' of space.
    • All tent supports, trailer hitches, propane tanks, etc., must be within the boundaries of their assigned booth spaces.
    • Vendors must bring an adequate amount of food to last the entire event from 9am-4pm.
    • NO sewer or water hookups available.
    • NO grease disposal available.
    • NO sharing of spaces. Each business/organization must apply for booth space separately. 
    • Electricity & Propane:  Power is limited to certain booth areas.  Be sure to complete the section of the application on electrical needs, listing specific power requirements 110v or 220v. Vendors must bring suitable cords and outlet strips to meet their needs. 
    • Fire Safety:  Any vendor using cooking equipment must have a 40 BC-minimum fire extinguisher.  Any vendor who serves food must have a 20 BC-minimum fire extinguisher.  The fire marshal requires that propane tanks be secured firmly on a hard, non-combustible surface, i.e. cement blocks, tin, etc.  Vendors must supply their own surface on which to secure tanks - the ground alone does not qualify.

    • Licenses:  Vendors are responsible for acquiring all necessary state and town licenses.  Licenses must be displayed at the concession site for government inspectors.
    • Selection of food vendors will be made on the basis of quality and pricing, with the priority of providing a variety of menu choices for the Art Fair. You may be asked to adjust your menu based on what other vendors are planning to offer, if another vendor signed up first.

    • No refunds after June 7.
