MARKET DAY REQUIREMENTS
Weights for Tents
Tents must be weighted down with 40 lbs of weight on each leg. This is the responsibility of the vendor. Any tent that is not properly weighted down by 9:00 a.m will be asked to resolve the issue before being able to continue the Market otherwise you will be forced to take down your tent for the duration of the festival. This is a SAFETY issue. You may not tie your tent to another vendor this is not safe. NO STAKES allowed.
All tents must have at a minimum a 2A:10BC Rated Fire Extinguisher and must have a current annual inspection. Attach your receipt to the Fire Extinguisher so you have documentation for the Fire Department.
MARKET DAY GUIDELINES REQUIREMENTS
A completed and legible application must be submitted, with payment, to be considered as a vendor for Market Days. An incomplete application will cause delay in processing your payment. Your booth will not be assigned until your application is processed. A new application MUST BE SUBMITTED each time you make a payment. No post- dated checks or credit cards are accepted. Checks are to be payable to The Downtown Georgetown Association or DGA.
Booth assignments are made based on vendor type and at the discretion of the coordinator. No vendor is guaranteed a specific space or a street unless payment is received quarterly for three consecutive months. If payment is paid quarterly - in advance - your booth selection should be listed on the application with an optional selection. Quarterly booth assignments are assigned based on date received and payment processed.
PLEASE NOTE: NO REFUNDS OR TRANSFERS WILL BE MADE DUE TO VENDOR CANCELLATION. In the event of inclement weather, DGA will make every effort to hold/continue the event. All vendors are expected to comply. Refunds are NOT given due to inclement weather conditions. Cancellations must be sent via email so we have confirmation that you will not be here no cancellation via phone call unless this is the day of Market Day.
ALL VENDORS MUST PARK IN LOTS LOCATED AT 6TH & MAIN OR 9TH & MAIN PARKING LOTS. This is indicated on your Market Day application. Vendors are not to park in front of merchant stores or take up allocated parking spots around the Square. Please make every effort to comply so we do not have to ask you to move.
Many of the vendors are parking in front of the merchant stores. PLEASE NOTE - these are reserved parking spaces for visitors to the Square. Should you choose not to park in the parking areas provided, your car may be towed at your expense. The DGA or coordinators are NOT responsible.
