tent info:

Artists must provide their own 10 x 10 tent, with sides and a front enclosure.  

All tents must have a minimum of 40# weights per corner (4 total).

A good load in starts with YOU!  Follow the schedule!  The schedule applies to YOU.

SEE BELOW FOR SCHEDULE!  

WHAT TO DO:

1.  Know your tent number.  

2.  Look at the map attached and know your entrance, exit point and booth location.

All traffic is one way.

3. Check in at the entrance point with our friendly Artist Welcome Team member.  They will guide you and answer any questions.

4.  Drive up to your assigned area and unload.   DO NOT SET UP!

5.  DO NOT SET UP!  (So important, we've said it twice).  After unloading, immediately park your car.

6.  After parking your car, THEN you can set up.  

It is CRUCIAL that everyone follows this very important step.  Otherwise, it's a log jam.  Our friendly Artist Welcome Team members get not-so-friendly if you choose to ignore this.  

Friday:  All cars must be off fairgrounds at 3pm.  No cars will be allowed in after 3pm.  Anything brought in after, must be walked in.
