6. BOOTH SETUP AND TEARDOWN:
Setup: Vendors may arrive at the event grounds as early as Tuesday (March 31st) at 4 PM if staying on site. Vending booths will be allowed to be set up between the hours of 4:00 PM on Wednesday (April 1stth) through Thursday (April 2nd). Our vendor coordinator will contact you two weeks prior to coordinate an estimated arrival and set up time. Vendors must be set up and have all vehicles removed from the faire grounds by 8:45 AM on Friday (April 3rd) morning. Absolutely NO exceptions will be made. If a food vendor requires a vehicle to remain on the grounds for the purposes of refrigeration, it MUST be preapproved by the faire director. The space you will be assigned will be limited to an area where the vehicle will be hidden. The vehicle cannot be removed during the course of the entire event and must be covered with fabric or some other decoration to hide its appearance. This is due to the type of event; we try to keep everything as historically time period as we possibly can.
Two weeks prior to the event We will do our best to accommodate any special requests. Upon arrival, you will receive vendor wristbands and parking tags. We will have escorts available to take you to your site, and answer any questions you may have. Slot assignments are based on size of booth, electrical needs, and location. By assigning this way, we hope to avoid multiple vendors within a given area attempting to set up at the same time. We will not ask adjacent vendors to move for late comers. Please be considerate of other vendors who are already set up. Vendors must provide any ground cover required to avoid damage to the grounds, and remove the same at the conclusion of the event.
b. Teardown: Vendors may begin teardown no sooner than 4:00 pm on Sunday, April, 5th 2020. VENDORS MUST BE OFF THE FAIRE GROUNDS BY 7:00 PM ON APRIL 5TH, 2020. Labor for setup and teardown is the responsibility of the vendor and is not provided by the LBRF. Those who do not comply with this policy will not be asked to participate in future faires. All food vendors are responsible for the removal of their grease or any charcoal and/or ashes from the faire grounds. Dumping of grease or charcoal and/or hot ashes in faire disposal containers or on the faire grounds is prohibited. Grease or burn marks will not be tolerated and will result in forfeit of deposit or additional assessment of damages. Boxes must be broken down and all trash must be taken to the dumpsters provided. Food Vendor’s booth sites will be inspected before cleared to receive any booth deposits.
c. Power: We will do everything we can to make sure your power is up and running during event hours; however, power outages have in the past occurred. If an outage occurs, we will do everything possible to fix the outage in a timely manner. Please be prepared with backup generators if you are a food vendor. If for some unforeseen reason a power outage cannot be resolved, the LBRF will refund the power usage charges on the contract. Electrical power is limited to 110v/15amp for non-food vendors. You must supply your own cords and connectors (120v, 15 amp, 3-wire cord connector, straight blade with U ground). Food Vendors: a limited number of 220v/50 amp outlets are available on a first come, first served basis. You must supply your own cords and connectors to match our NEMA 14-50 R 4-wire receptacle rated at 125/250v, which is standard electric range type of receptacle.
The LBRF will not have any cords and/or connectors available. If you apply for a 220v/50 amp outlet and the available spots are sold out, we will notify you upon receipt of your application. Please note: 220v/50 amp is only available in the food court area. The number of 110v/15 amp or 220v/50 amp outlets you purchase will determine how many outlets you may use. This event will have zero tolerance for vendors who attempt to use more electrical outlets than what they paid for. Vendors who pay for electricity will be issued an electricity tag. This tag must be displayed prominently at the end of your cord at the power source. If you use electricity during the event without a tag, we are left with no choice but to fine you and disconnect your power source. Since applications will be processed in the order they are received and by the type of food served, we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible. Due to the selected number of food vendors for the LBRF, it is especially important to apply early. If you are not selected for this year’s event, you will be issued a full refund.
d. Water/Ice: Limited water will be available onsite. Dumping of waste water inside the event area will not be permitted. It will be each vendor’s responsibility to haul in their own fresh water, and dispose of their waste water at the appropriate dump site. The Faire will carry ice for vendors that may need to purchase additional ice. This will be available as a convenience and supplies will be limited. First come, first serve.
e. Trash: Each vendor is responsible for the removal and disposal of all materials, litter (including cigarette butts), garbage, including boxes, (broken down) and signs. The LBRF will provide dumpsters.
7. FOOD COURT: The LBRF will include a “Food Court”, where food vendors will all have an equal chance to attract customers. This includes a central area with tables and chairs for food consumption.
8. VENDOR HOURS: All vendors are required to remain open from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm on Friday, Saturday from 10:00 am- 6:00 pm (food vendors and arts and crafts in the food court area have the option to stay open till 10 pm), and from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm on Sunday. NOTE: Food vendors not offering breakfast items may open at 11:00 am on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
9. VENDOR SPACE AND CONDUCT:
a. Booths: All vendors must have weights or stakes for any canopies in use. Please ensure that all four corners of your canopy have weights of at least 50 lbs attached or are staked in such a way as to not cause a tripping hazard or infringe upon your neighbor’s space. If high winds develop, all vendors must take action to minimize damage and risk to attendees. Vendors agree to see that their booth is staffed with sufficient people during the scheduled hours of the festivities. There will be no live animals brought onto the faire grounds at any time with the exception of animals trained and used for medical reasons or law enforcement (specifically service animals as defined in the American’s with Disabilities Act). Vendor acknowledges that it is unlawful to leave unattended pets inside a vehicle. Vendors will not bring onto the faire grounds any alcoholic beverages. Booth sharing is not allowed. All vendors need to purchase their own booth spaces and obtain their own business licenses. Vendors sharing booths will not be asked to participate in future faires. The use of any sound devices must be at conversational level so as not to interfere with neighboring vendors. The LBRF Organizing Committee expects our vendors to be respectful of other vendors, volunteers, as well as our citizens and guests enjoying the LBRF. Anyone behaving in a rude or unprofessional manner may be asked to leave and will not be asked to participate in future faires.
b. Parking/Admission: Vendors will be issued two entry passes to gain admittance to the LBRF grounds and must park in designated parking areas. We will provide a Vendor Parking Tag for one vehicle. This tag must be present to avoid towing. Once the event starts, vehicle movement is not allowed within the faire grounds between 8:45 am and 6:15 pm, except for emergencies. For the safety of our guests, a security escort will be required in the event of an emergency. Vendors must enter at designated gates. Overnight parking is permitted in designated vendor zones only.
c. Safety: If using equipment that produces heat or flame, such as cooking equipment or propane gas, you must have a type 2A10BC Fire Extinguisher on site that is full and has been serviced in the last twelve months with the tag of the service company. All fire codes, laws, ordinances and regulations pertaining to health, fire prevention and public safety shall be strictly observed. See the attached Fire Safety Requirements for Special Event Exhibitors and Food Concessionaires. Vendors closed by an inspector for any reason will not receive a refund. Note: Food vendors are not allowed under fire code to cook with oil inside any tents or canopies.
d. Security: Security will be on site, but will not be provided for individual booths. If you leave your merchandise overnight at the faire site, you will be doing so at your own risk.
e. Contact Information: All vendors must provide a phone number that will allow for 24 hour emergency contact. Corporate and 800 numbers do not meet this requirement.
10. APPLICATION DEADLINE: Applications will be accepted until January 10, 2020. Please note that booth space is limited, and will only be available until all open slots are filled by an approved and complete paid application submission.
We look forward to seeing you at the event!
