BREAK DOWN

Please be a kind guest of our town and leave your booth space on Sunday as tidy as you found it. Do not leave anything behind and take with you all trash, including empty boxes.

LOAD OUT

  • Break down completely.
  • To prevent a log jam at the park entrance, please shuttle any goods to your vehicle via hand cart.
  • Town utility vehicles will be available on a first come, first served basis.
  • Flag a staff member down when you are ready to clear your space.
  • Please do not leave anything behind in your space and break down any empty boxes that you plan to discard.
