Vendors submitting this application agree to be on Center Street to set up between 3:30 to 5pm. Vendors must be set up before 5pm as late arrivals are disruptive to attendees and other vendors at the event. Vehicles will not be allowed on event grounds again until 10pm. We ask all vendors to strictly observe these setup and take down times.
