White lines delicately painted along the front outer edge of your booth space mark the front limits of your booth, the curb edge marks the back outer edge of your booth space. Your booth, equipment, signs, merchandise, etc. must remain behind the white line and never cross over the curb at any time. On the white line are black Alaskan made numbers, marking the left and right limits of your booth space. Your booth space fits snuggly and directly between these numbers. Your booth, equipment, signs, merchandise, etc. must remain within the left and right limits of your booth space at all times. If you have ANY question as to where your booth is located, make sure you check the online vendor map!
Water … Not An Issue…there is none.
Vendors must make their own arrangements to secure needed water supplies. None exists in the Vendor Court area. There is NO facility within the Vendor Court area to dump tanks. Waste water must be removed or held until your trailer can make it to an RV dump or other approved waste water dumping facility.

There are 3 large 40 CY dumpsters for your use. One is located at the North end behind the food vendors and two are located at the South end of the Vendor Court behind the food vendors. Vendors should dispose of all trash in these dumpsters. Our staff will make regular trash runs to empty the trash cans in the aisles. You are responsible for placing your trash inside the dumpster, we ask that you please load the dumpster from back to front(door) to make loading for all vendors easier. Once event staff determines that it is no longer safe to open the dumpster doors, the doors will be locked and vendors will be required to load from the top of the dumpster.
At the end of the festival on Sunday, vendors are responsible for cleaning and vacating their contracted area no later than 10PM to allow Vendor Court crew time to clean entire parking lot and adjacent areas. Vendors must ensure their space is left in ‘BROOM SWEPT’ condition before the vendor leaves. Failure to ensure your space is in ‘Broom Swept’ condition will result in a $150 cleaning fee per booth space.
