Additionally, you will need to provide your OWN Grease Trap as well as tables and tents.

POWER AND WATER
What kind of power sources do you need for your booth? Please keep in mind, as this festival takes place in the fall, it will be getting dark around 6:30 pm, please factor in any lighting you may need for your space
1. Do you need power? ($40 per day fee for power) *
2. If so, please post each item needing power at your booth. Feel free to inquire further or assume that a light bulb and a blender is fair enough detail. *
Your answer
Do you need access to water? *
Please note:
All Vendor spaces require a tent with flame certification tag fully attached and eights on each order of the tent to pass Fire Department inspections.

Tents will not be available for rent this year so it will be your responsibility to provide your own tent, tables and vendor license.
