Electricity (check one of the below options)
If electricity is needed, list the devices and amps required.
Indoor Vendors: Simple electronics are not of concern such as laptops, tablets or cell phones. We need to know about electronics that are high wattage. Note that we cannot guarantee electrical outlets for each exhibitor. We will prioritize food vendors and then reserve outlets for exhibitors on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will let you know whether we can meet your request.

Be sure to bring extension cords and power strips in case you need to share with a neighboring Vendor. No butane burners allowed indoors.

Outdoor Vendors: Power is very limited outside and we traditionally do not provide power to outdoor non-food vendors. Please contact us if you need power outside.

Graphic images inside of literature are acceptable and may still be distributed (please specify in the product description). If you have any questions, please contact us. We reserve the right to disallow any graphic imagery that does not fit within these guidelines on the day of the festival.
