*We acknowledge that Yom Kippur 2017 is this weekend this year, we want to assure you that while we cannot move our festival from the first weekend of October due to a number of production circumstances beyond our control, we have been working hard to make the Sunday of this year special! If you are a vendor that can only participate on Sunday as a 1 day vendor because you are observing the holiday, please reach out directly to!

*Work submitted and sold must be the original work of the entrant. Commercial and manufactured items will not be allowed, and the Show management reserves the right to have you remove unacceptable merchandise from the display area. Each crafts vendor will handle her/his own sales. Collecting and reporting of sales tax is each craft vendor's responsibility.

*Your booth must be kept neat and clean. Your table should be covered to the ground and boxes must be hidden from view. Trash must be disposed of and recycled properly. Access to the stores and businesses must be maintained at all times. No alcoholic beverages are permitted. Ithaca has an open container law that is strictly enforced.

*We will have staff members walking around doing schedule Craft Relief Visits throughout the weekend to give you an opportunity to leave your booth for a few minutes.

*No awnings are allowed on tents as these interfere with the fire lane.

*You can park in the Parking Garage on Cayuga Street, across from the Hotel Ithaca or in the Green Street or Seneca Street garages. Parking is $7 for the day on Friday in the garages. Event parking is in place for $5 per day on Saturday and Sunday. If you cannot fit in a parking garage (7 foot clearance, no trailers), please indicate below that you'd like to make arrangements.

*At the end of the show on each night we must wait until the Ithaca Police Department clears the area for vehicles. This may take until 8pm or longer depending on crowds.

*We are not able to permit ANY vehicles into the area until this clearance is obtained. You may use a hand truck and the loading zones at the end of each intersection to remove your items prior to this clearance.

*You should pack your booth and place it on the sidewalk, directly behind your booth spot BEFORE you retrieve your vehicle.

*A show coordinator will be walking the site during tear down to help direct traffic. Please do not retrieve your car until you are told to by staff. Any violation of a staff person or Police Department officers directions will result in your not being included in future festivals, and possible ticketing, fines or other police action.

*Security during the festival is provided including overnight staff. However, we advise removing any valuable items from your site. You are able to leave your tent and belongings in place overnight.

*Please report any issues to the coordinator immediately so that they can be resolved.
