WHERE TO PARK:

There is $10 paid parking benefiting charities at Credit Union One (400 E 9 Mile) and E 9 Mile Rd.  Volunteers will be there with signs.  More paid lots include Ferndale Chamber of Commerce/Auxiliary Credit Union One Lot located on E. 9 Mile, directly across from the Credit Union One Building and the Ferncare Lot next door to the Chamber on E. 9 Mille.  There is street parking in the neighborhoods, but we suggest you leave those spots for fairgoers to have easy access to the event.  The easier the public can get to DIY, the better the chances of selling out of your wares!  MORE PARKING INFO!

tent info:

We will be providing a 10 x 10 tent, with sides and a front enclosure.  You must use our tent unless we have already made special arrangements for you to bring your own.  You are responsible for storing the front panel and wrapping up your tent each night.  Tables and chairs reserved in advance will be in your tent.

SUNDAY LOAD OUT:

IMPORTANT!!!  THERE WILL BE NO ACCESS FOR CARS DURING THE HOURS OF THE FAIR ON SUNDAY NIGHT FOR LOAD-OUT UNTIL 11:30pm.   THIS WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED FOR SAFETY.  ALL AREAS OF THE FAIR WILL BE VERY POPULATED.  IF YOU NEED TO PACK UP EARLY, YOU WILL HAVE TO WALK YOUR things OUT TO YOUR CAR.  PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY!

 

By participating in DIY Street Fair, you are expected to be conscientious, good neighbors.  NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL IS PERMITTED. If you are playing music inside your tent, make sure you are not disturbing others.  DIY reserves the right to remove you from the fairgrounds if you are not cooperating within our standards of professionalism OR if your work is inappropriate or has been misrepresented in your application.  To review the Standards, Rule and Practices that you agreed to, click HERE.
