Rules & Regulations – Holiday 2017

RESTRICTIONS 
Festival Management reserves the right to remove items that have been falsely entered or are found to be manufactured, imported, not made by the artist, or any that are unsuitable or objectionable for a family-oriented Festival, This includes music, noise, scents, printed materials or anything else that the management finds objectionable. Refunds will not be given in these cases. Music booths must provide headphones for customers to listen to the music. Live musical demonstrations must be limited to a total of 15 minutes per hour.  Artist must be present – no reps permitted in place of artist.

CHILDREN AND PETS 
Pets are not permitted at the Festival, unless they are for handicap assistance. Children must stay with you in your booth and may not roam around the show. They are welcome to visit the Kids Creation Station™, but please limit this to one hour per day.
 
CANCELLATION POLICY 
Deadline is May 15th to commit to space by making a 50% down-payment. Cancellations received before July 15, 2017 will be eligible for a refund minus the non-refundable $100. After July 15, refunds will be made for 50% of the total booth fees. After October 1, refunds will be made for 20% of the total booth fees, providing exhibitor notifies the office of cancellation. If booth fees are not received in our office by designated deadlines, and exhibitor has not contacted the Festival, booth may be cancelled and resold without refund.

BOOTH SHARING
Two exhibitors (only) may share a booth ($75 additional charge). Submit one entry per exhibitor and designate one person responsible for fees.  Both artists must undergo the jury process and be accepted into the show.

MEDIA RELEASE
Upon acceptance, one image for each exhibitor will be chosen for the website gallery (proper lighting, strong colors, and plain background work best). If no such image is available, exhibitor will not be represented on the website.  The images provided on Zapplication may be used for publicity purposes – in which case the artist will be properly recognized and credited.  If this is not acceptable, notify the office.  

REPRODUCED ITEMS
Functional items with reproductions of the artist’ work on them (art tiles, mugs, etc.) must be submitted for jurying under the separate category of ‘reproductions of the artists work’.  (Prints or giclees are allowed and do not need to be entered under the reproduction category).  These reproduced functional items may not make up more than 20% of the display space in the booth and cannot include totes, T-shirts, caps, or other clothing items.

 

SPECIALTY FOODS – ‘CULINARY ROW’
A limited number of spaces will be reserved for sales and sampling of specialty food – balsamic vinegars, jams and jellies, salsas, chocolates, dips, soup mixes, etc. Vendors applying for sampling space must submit images of their products and booth as well as submit samples.  Specialty body products are also grouped with the specialty food section – this includes lotions and soaps. Specialty food vendors do not undergo the same jury process as artists and craftsmen, but are evaluated based on product quality, variety and availability. These specialty booths will be grouped together in one row of the show.
