The Hometown Fair Rules: The purpose of the Free Speech area is to speak about your cause or non-profit group. There will be no sales or money collected in these booths.  This includes donation containers, drawings or lottery for a “prize.” There are to be no “free samples” passed out. No physical contact is allowed outside of handshaking or incidental friendly contact. You may distribute information only, collect signatures on petitions, and take names for future contact purposes. You and/or your organization is responsible for providing all materials (pop-up tent, tables, chairs, etc.) and labor to set up, dismantle, and clear away your booth. The booth workers agree to abide by these rules and clean up the surrounding area and move the booth structure to the sidewalk in a timely manner at the close of the Fair on Saturday and remove all items at the close of the Fair on Sunday. There is no electricity available, and no generators are allowed.  Participants must conform to all entry and exit traffic patterns and parking instructions. Participants will not move to another location without official permission. Participants must operate only within their designated booth space; no roving is permitted. Booths must conform to size restrictions on all sides and not infringe on walkways. One of your designated contact persons MUST be in the booth for opening and closing of the Fair both days.  All booth workers must wear a badge or name tag that indicates their name and the group name. The Fair Board reserves the right to ask you to leave if you do not follow these guidelines, or you are causing a disturbance that is affecting the safety of the Fair participants. All the Hometown Fair rules are to be followed: no dogs, bicycles, skateboards or weapons.  Failure to comply with these rules can result in closure and may exclude your participation in future fairs. *
